Feedback from CPD days & Webinars
"I am deeply appreciative to be introduced to this emotive and complex subject in such an intelligent and compassionate way, Sophia is a very talented facilitator with an embodied and relational ethic" T.F, core process psychotherapist who attended embodied privilege workshop.
I felt you paced the day very well and moved with people's level of energy, ideas and emerging awareness. I did feel initially nervous and anxious at the thought of group work yet the movement aspect of the workshop supported me. When we weaved between each other, I found my space and ease. I spend too much time outside my body or in my head, this workshop encouraged me to connect with myself and I feel more confident and stronger to move forwards, Thank you. J. Smith, Family systemic psychotherapist who attended embodied privilege workshop.

"I dipped my feet in the waters of a subject that I have never been taught before or had very little knowledge about. I now feel that I can start to take my new awareness into my current work as a full time yoga teacher and I have a clearer understanding of my own vulnerabilities and power.The online space was both safe and welcoming and I looked forward to the group every week. I really felt like I learnt something valuable." - from Jo,Yoga teacher based in Wales.
