I have been very busy speaking at events up and down the country and have tried to raise awareness of the issues surrounding both self harm and abuse plus of course telling my own story of how I overcame adversity. Here are some examples of the testimonials that I have received:
"We as a group thoroughly enjoyed and were intrigued by Sophie's story. She was very professional and informative, it was lovely to see and hear about a real life success story." - MET POLICE, NOV 08
”Feel privileged to be allowed to enter into a first hand account description of such a harrowing experience – insightful and thought provoking.” – SAMARITAN NATIONAL CONFERENCE, SEPT 08
"I just wanted to write and thank you for your lecture last night. I thought you were totally inspiring. It is so true that you need to look beyond the person you see, to the person beneath. A thought that I will certainly carry with me. Our students have been buzzing about it this morning, telling their friends they should have come" - PRIOR PARK COLLEGE, FEB 2014
As well as motivational speaking I also now work with health service professionals to offer advice and training. Please contact me on the details below if you wish to discuss your needs further and to see if I can help your organisation in any way.
