Sophia is a voice weaver, song carrier, creative facilitator and Holistic Voice Therapist. She has been holding space for transformational voice work for over 16 years and is dedicated to supporting people to find an authentic and embodied relationship with their voice.

Sophia invites us to experience the truth of ourselves as resonant beings within a vibrational world, supporting a deep remembering, and ancient sense of belonging.

Her work reflects a reverence for nature, and the human potential for healing and empowerment through connection to the earth, our own hearts and each other. She holds a deep and potent space with a lightness of spirit, inviting everyone to meet and welcome themselves as they are.

Sophia has spent time with the ancient spirit traditions of Zimbabwe and Mexico, and studied West African rhythm in The Gambia. She has collected songs from many traditions and cultures, and teaches them in an easeful way, honouring the lands where they originated, inviting anyone of any ability to experience the joy and healing of singing together in harmony. 

She began her training with the Earth Dances programme with Denise Rowe in 2015 and since 2016 she has been a supporting musician on several of the year-long programmes.

She has also studied extensively with Briony Greenhill  and Guillermo Rozenthuler in CVI (Collaborative Vocal Improvisation) and Circle Singing.

Since 2021 she has been offering ‘Embodied Song’ Retreats bringing together therapeutic voice work, song, improvisation, movement, Earth honouring and ritual.

Sophia has trained with the ‘British Academy of Sound Therapy’ and received a distinction in her ‘Holistic Voice Therapy’ Diploma.

Her song ‘This is Home’, featured in her TEDx talk ‘Singing Ourselves Home’, is sung by choirs all over the world. 

Sophia now runs Song Leader Training programmes alongside her two community choirs, workshops and retreats.
