"Sonia completely rewired my internal voice. She encouraged and cultivated a deep and clear understanding of my own strengths and emotions, and opened my eyes on how these affected my every day life. She helped me recalibrate my own personal values, and be proud of what I stand for. She helped me interpret my professional relationships, and gave endless and invaluable advice on how these could be made stronger.
