What clients say about Sophia



Lyn Allen [Practice Manager]

"Sophia provided consultancy in the set up of a new Mental Health Service for Karori Medical Centre. Her approach was completely professional and detailed, ensuring that this new service was quickly embedded and available for our patients. Sophia has also provided mentoring and coaching for several staff members through periods of change. I recommend Sophia and her services to any person or company who can see the future but not the way there. Her skills in guiding change are exceptional. "

Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching

Tania Smith [Head Of Finance at Summerset Group Holdings Ltd]

"I first worked with Sophia when my CE offered coaching to support the ELT leading through a time of change for the organisation. She has also subsequently supported me in a new role in a new organisation. While I had some ideas of what I would like to receive coaching on, I really feel somehow Sophia just knew what I needed, even when I didn’t really know myself. She has an amazing ability to listen, question, and draw out the issues. She offers insights about myself and others which makes sense of situations and put them in perspective. She is very perceptive, both in getting to the crux of an issue and assisting me to understand myself better. Sophia has given me tools and insights that challenge me to think differently and develop myself wholeheartedly, which I continue to apply on a regular basis. She has made me a better leader, manager, partner and parent. I have recommended Sophia to others who have had had similar results and I strongly recommend everyone has a Sophia in their life!"

"Sophia Weithaler's coaching quite literally changed my life! Thanks to the professional development sessions I had with Sophia, I was able to determine what it was that I wanted to do in my career and achieve and put together a plan for how I would do that. Two years later I am on that path having realised that the goals she helped me set are more than pipedreams, they are achievable and that is exactly what I'm doing today, achieving my career goals with a positive outlook and approach. "

"I started working with Sophia during the course of a very taxing project. I thought my initial goal was managing stress and burn out, and how to manage an eventual transition. Sophia helped me so much more than that - her coaching has been a transformational experience that has facilitated positive change in all facets of my life. Sophia’s intuitive ability to get to the true core of your concerns and behaviours is incredible. Her supportive and caring approach created a safe environment where I could work through the changes I needed to make.
