About Sonia

Ending my drinking pain took me back to joyfully living in Inner Peace, free from feeling Overwhelmed, Exhausted and Stressed about not just my drinking, but in every area of my LIFE 🧡

My drinking robbed me of LIFE, not physically (although it came close), but the Joy, Peace, Happiness, Gratitude and LOVE of a life worth living.

My attempts to not drink, to not pick up that damn first glass was a daily battle I always lost. 

I thought it was me vs vodka, but the truth is it was me vs me.

Ever morning I made the decision to stop, yet every evening I drank and felt less of the woman and mother I longed to be on every level.

I know that making a heartfelt decision to change is not enough to change.

I know that willpower, control, positive thoughts and motivation don’t work and I know why, and that ‘why’ was because my focus was on ALCOHOL being the problem, when the truth was, my drinking was nothing more than an action I had learnt to believe was the solution to my problems…….

Now, with daily profound gratitude for the woman and mother I am, 6 years free of feeling controlled and lost in my drinking, released from feeling Overwhelmed, Stressed and Fearful of myself and my ability to make and stick with any good choices, I now live in Freedom, Grace and Peace, not just around alcohol, but in LIFE.  And I know how easy change does work, the Why and the simple How, and I can deliver it to you, effortlessly.

Hi, I’m Sonia and I am The LIFE Recovery Coach, the very proud sober single mother to my one-in-a-trillion-son, Christopher, and  Mama to my two ‘Girls’, my doglets Gorby & Piccalilli.

I started my coaching journey as The Recovery Coach, and I am the creator of unique, 6 week Rapid Alcohol Recovery Method process, which has helped 100’s of women and men regain control of their drinking and given them back the Peace, Happiness and Calm in LIFE that comes from having the freedom to choose how and when they enjoy a social drink with confidence and ease.

And I have now expanded my work into LIFE Recovery Coaching, because I see so many struggling with a LIFE less than they deserve.

I use my powerful coaching skills to take clients from Overwhelm to Inner Peace, through a similar process that consistently works, using an exciting blend of neuroscience, practical strategies and spiritual practices.

Why have I widened my practice?  Because Overwhelm, Stress and Anxiety have become the emotional crises of modern life and my passion and mission is to help you find release and freedom, effortlessly.

Professionally I  am a Master Practitioner of NLP, a Master Coach, Master Of TimeLine Therapy, Mindset Master, certified Soul Plan Reading and Grace Healing practitioner, who coaches world-wide, as well as being an internationally acclaimed author on addiction & recovery & have appeared on This Morning, GB NEWS, the BBC, in the HuffPost Woman Magazine and in The Daily Mail, in  as well as being a regular contributor to Arianna Huffington’s wellbeing organisation, Thrive Global.
