Working with grassroots organisations can be an incredibly rewarding experience. The chance to make a difference in our communities and in someone else’s life is one of the greatest things that we, as empathetic individuals, are privileged to have.
However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Providing support to those in need can be extremely challenging. It can take an emotional and physical toll on those who tirelessly work on the front line. Burnout is a common side effect, which can be incredibly difficult to deal with.
Thankfully, there is someone who understands the importance of providing a safe space and coaching to help individuals overcome their struggles. Meet inc org founder Sophie Cook- a highly trained, professional coach who studied with the ICF-accredited Awaken Coach Institute.
Sophie’s experience, including her work on the frontline of mental health support throughout the pandemic, has shown her the power of coaching to help people overcome stress, find their authentic voice, and excel. She’s an open, empathic listener who’s not afraid to ask the tough questions, allowing her clients to dive deep into the root causes of their issues.
But don’t just take our word for it- here’s what some of Sophie’s clients have said about her:
“After a bad encounter at work, I was made to feel small, worthless, and powerless. Sophie helped me realize that I’m the only one letting the bullies win. I’m important, and I can take control over my own thoughts and life. Thanks to Sophie’s guidance, I now keep this in my head and my heart.”
“Your beautiful presence creates a sense of trust and safety so easily, allowing people to show up authentically. Bravery drives bravery.”
“Your presence as a coach makes your client feel like a hero- truly seen.”
“Grateful for your pure love and humanity during coaching.”
“Real and natural, Sophie actively listens. She helped me verbalise my thoughts and allowed me to create a plan!”
