About Sofia

I'm a certified Reiki Master and I’ve been a professional Reiki practitioner for over 20 years. Reiki healing has been a constant comfort to me through the ups and downs of life.

I have always been a bit of a seeker and I have enjoyed delving into various philosophies and alternative therapies, including qi gong, ayurveda, meditation and more.  I’m always open to learning and I love discovering new ways that we can help support ourselves and each other to achieve our highest potential for health, balance and joy.

In 2005, at the age of 29, I co-founded one of the UK’s most successful independent music festivals (End of the Road) and spent ten intense years as a fulltime booker, organiser and company director.

Music is a great passion of mine but in 2015 after a whirlwind decade of musical adventures, joys, tears, tribulations and a lot of time spent in front of a computer – I was utterly worn out and developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME). I realised I would have to make some drastic life changes if I was going to recover, so I let go of all my responsibilities with the festival and gave myself time and space to focus on my health and wellbeing.

With the help of my GP, various forms of therapy, some brilliant alternative health practitioners and my daily Reiki practise I made steady progress and after a couple of years, I was once again excited and happy about life. At this point I expanded my Reiki practice by working at the Stillpoint Centre in Sheffield.

My husband and I had a baby daughter in 2018 and moved to Sweden in 2020, where we now live permanently. Reiki was a constant source of support for me during these times of big change.

In 2021 I decided to follow another one of my great passions in life - animals - and started a one year professional practitioner course in animal communication. Reiki helped give me the energy and focus I needed for the studies and since July 2022 I now also work as an Animal Communicator, which I love just as much as working with Reiki.

I believe that Reiki has brought a great amount of balance, peace, calm and energy into my life and it gives me great pleasure to help other people experience those same benefits.
