About Sonia Grimes


I’m Sonia and I am your Recovery Coach.

Recovery is not just about the unhappy habits we stop doing, its about who we are and what we do instead.  It’s about recovering the whole, healthy, happy us before our habit became both our comfort and our pain.

Our greatest gift as humans is that we are designed for wellness, both physical and emotional and given every opportunity, that is where we will head.  Once we are back in balance with a healthy understanding of ‘us’, our habits become naturally unnecessary, without stress or deprivation.  I promise x

I use my experiences, awareness and expert training to coach incredible women to live the life they deserve, free from their unhappy emotional eating and drinking habits.

Who Do You Want To Be?

You want to be slim, healthy, energized and in control of what you eat and drink.

You want to end the mornings of hangovers and the half memories off the night before.  You want to wake after a good nights, truly restful sleep, without feeling dehydrated and depressed that you ‘failed’ again in your attempt to not drink, or at least to limit your drinking.

You want to slip into gorgeous clothes without having to panic and starve yourself for days in advance – knowing that if you don’t, they’re just not going to fit.

Bottom line, you want to look and feel amazing, every day.

Who Are You Now?

Problem is that right now, that’s just not you and you are not sure why.  You try to eat healthily and to drink less, but it seems like hard work with no treats.    The scales keep going up, your self-esteem going down and your clothes keep getting tighter.

You are fed up and stressed at the thought of trying to cut down on your evening wine, or to lose weight yet again, but you know you have to do it for yourself and your family. You hate your own body and your reflection in the mirror upsets and depresses you.  Everyone else can do it but not you.  The strict rules you put in place don’t work.  In fact they leave you craving food or alcohol more!   Life seems to get harder the more you try,  not easier, and you know that no matter what success you have, it won’t last.  It never does.

Well it does now.  Whether you are a stressed business woman, an exhausted Mum or you are simply fed up of  looking and feeling far less than your best,  I can help you.

I provide transformational Recovery Coaching to help amazing women (and that’s all of you!) understand and finally break free from unhappy  food and drinking habits, without deprivation or relying on willpower.

As a former alcoholic of over 27 years (4 years wonderfully free) and with a hugely destructive relationship with food,  I have unparalleled first-hand knowledge and insight of being trapped in a damaging and depressing cycle of emotional drinking & eating – and trust me on this, whether it is food or drink,  the root causes and the solution are the same.

I have a unique understanding of the often monumental struggles with high expectations and disappointing results that you go through daily to be the healthy, happy person you want and you and your loved ones deserve you to be, and I know exactly how to coach you to that life and body without stress or the fear of failure.

Every session with me will empower you with new understanding, knowledge, skills and strategies that easily move you closer to your dream body and life.  At times there may be tears, sometimes of release, often of relief at the freedom you can now see and feel in front of you.  And finally, I can promise you that you will always leave feeling excited for your future.

I have a huge emotional and practical toolkit to support you.  I am a Nutrition expert, a certified Master Practitioner of NLP, TimeLine Therapy and Hypnosis, a Master Coach and a powerful Wellness Coach.

I am also the author of “This Isn’t Me“, the story of my personal journey through both drug and alcohol addiction, and then finally and thankfully, into recovery.

If you are ready to finally break free from your old food and alcohol habits, to live your one precious life looking and feeling your very best, now is your time.
