About me

Is there a part of your life that you want to change or develop? Do you feel stuck or unsure of how to make this change on your own? Maybe you are excited to see where coaching can take you and ready to start a new chapter. I am here to help you to start achieving the goals that matter to you.

My name is Sophie Bunce and I am a Transformational Life Coach. I support my clients through the process of exploring and achieving meaningful, authentic change in their lives. I believe that change is always possible, even at times when it feels impossible.

Transfomational coaching combines key ingredients of all forms of coaching (such as goal setting, questioning, challenging and an empathetic, supportive environment) with an exploration of the way that you, the client, views your goals, yourself and the world. This can involve exploring your values, beliefs, thoughts, emotions and assumptions. Transformational Coaching is a chance to learn what shapes your choices and behaviour. It helps you recognise patterns in your behaviour, limiting beliefs that hold you back and how to set authentic action points that motivate you. The new self-awareness that you develop will assist you in working more effectively and successfully towards your goals, and towards profound change in your life.

My clients come into coaching for a variety of reasons – to assist in making decisions, to develop an aspect of their life that is important to them, to explore relationship problems or to focus on their own personal development. Over the course of their coaching sessions a client will develop increased clarity into the specific change that they are working towards, recognise and challenge any blocks that may be holding them back, become more self-aware and start to set goals towards achieving their ideal outcome. During coaching sessions I favour an integrative approach to coaching, meaning that I use different styles of coaching depending on what I feel will be most beneficial for my client. I prioritise creating a space that is based on listening, empathy, trust and honesty.

If you are considering coaching I recommend that you get in touch with me. I offer an initial free, no-commitment 30-40 minute phone call to allow us to introduce ourselves and to speak about what it is that you would like to achieve from coaching. You have nothing to lose, there is no obligation to book a session and it may be the first step towards achieving significant change in your life.

During this period of self-isolation and distancing there are a lot of challenges that we will all experience (both shared and also unique to us). Please be aware that I am still offering coaching sessions, via telephone and online video sessions at flexible times during the week. I am here to assist you work through your own challenges during this time.

Further information


“In Summer 2018, I decided to reach out and get help to organise my thoughts and create an action plan around my work and lifestyle. I made a connection with Sophie online and arranged coaching sessions with her. These sessions enabled me to clarify and focus in on my approach to how I spend my time as well as work towards my next steps in my business. Sophie has a natural and relaxed style of coaching that made me feel at ease and able to speak openly about my goals and to figure out the changes I wanted to make. I highly recommend Sophie for those who are looking for a coach who works authentically with the coaching process and ensures that your agenda and well-being remain the focus throughout the experience”

“I highly recommend Sophie as a life coach for anyone who is feeling lost and wants to get their life back on track. Sophie has really helped me to develop a more positive outlook towards life and I look forward to the future life coaching sessions with her. Many, many thanks.”
