I’m Sofia, a qualified coach (ACC), educator and founder of FIERCE life coaching. For the past nine years I have made it my purpose to help young people grow into the best version of themselves.
My mission is to empower young people by helping them understand what is getting in the way of their goals so they can confidently move forward and live the lives they dream of.
I provide both individual and group coaching depending on the needs of the client. Each coaching package is individually tailored to the client after an in-depth discovery session.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a qualified youth coach, I work mostly with older youths who are in need of support to deal with school stress, family problems and the transition from high school to university. My background in education provides me with a wealth of experience to deal with such topics in my coaching practice.
My coaching work extends to teachers with a view to getting them motivated and confident both inside and outside the classroom. I also work closely with parents to help them develop a toolbox of coaching strategies to use at home with their teens.

"Sofia is a very skilled and empathetic coach. She knows how to ask just the right question, that helps you to get a step (or multiple steps) further in your thoughts. She is empathetic, interested and unobtrusively but steadily gets you to answer your own questions. Sofia has great experience in coaching teenagers, works with them and views them as the full persons they are or are becoming. " - T. Tammes
"Sofia is an amazing teacher and a great educator, but most importantly, she is an extraordinary woman and life coach. When I talk about my problems, I can see that she looks straight into my soul and that isn’t to be taken for granted nowadays.” - G. Lobascio (17)
