My name is Sophie and I am a life coach, mentor, pracademic and facilitator of knowledge, specialising in leadership coaching and systemic team coaching.
I thrive on supporting individuals with their authentic personal and leadership growth, with a particular passion for working alongside and encouraging women to increase their potential, maximise their impact and lead with greater confidence. Therefore, my approach to coaching is about co-creating a coaching partnership with my clients that enables them to perform to their best abilities in their own context and experience sustainable transformation. In my coaching practice, I acknowledge each client as creative, resourceful and whole.
I am an LCA Certified Professional Coach, GTCI Team Coaching Foundation Accredited Coach, and a member of the International Coaching Federation. I am Hogan and Mental Health First Aid Certified.
I combine over twenty-five years of experience working with people on authentic leadership, performance and strategic management in academia and international development.
As a coach, I developed transformative partnerships with managers and leaders who operate in complex and cross-cultural environments.
As an academic, I designed and delivered management and leadership training and post-graduate courses in English and French.
As an aid worker, I led and managed some of the most challenging humanitarian responses in West and Central Africa, East Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, the Caribbean, the US, Europe.
I currently live in Melbourne, where I set up my own business: “Elevate Coaching and Leadership Pty Ltd” while working with clients in Australia, South-East Asia, Central Africa and the Middle East.
A little bit more about me as a person: I am bilingual French-English and a continuous learner, an avid traveler who loves discovering new cultures and exploring their richness. I practice Pilates and meditation and enjoy cooking dishes from around the world using produces from my urban garden.
Fields of interest include strength-based coaching and mentoring, leadership capacity enhancement, women empowerment, change management, gender equality, DEI and social justice.
