What People are Saying

“I have absolutely loved completing Sophie's story writing course. My confidence in my own writing ability has improved and I have found the whole process hugely enjoyable. I have finished the course with a completed story which I'm very proud of. I now have the skills and confidence to write further stories which I know will help and support the children and families I work with. If you are interested in the benefits of therapeutic stories, then I urge you to go on a journey with Sophie's Stories. You won't regret it! ”


“This was an amazing course run by Sophie and re inspired me to get writing again and be creative. Excellent value for money, loved the way the course was so flexible, it fitted into a busy life, by being able to watch the presentations at my leisure. Thank you Sophie and Good Luck....”


“The personal journey you take with Sophie's Writing Academy is incredible. I started the course with tremendous doubt, nerves, and strong negative affirmations that I am not a capable therapeutic story writer for children... Well. I proved myself wrong and managed to quieten the negative voice, because by the end of the course I had written a fully-fledged story! And not just me. The individuals that I shared my journey with have wrote, or are in the process of writing, their stories, and the ones that I have been privileged to read so far have been absolutely amazing. The space that Sophie creates is that of warmth, acceptance and 100% belief in our abilities to write a story. Having such an environment was the foundation in us growing and opening the door to the creativity that lays within each and every one of us. Thank you Sophie ”


“Sophie has created an amazing Therapeutic Writing Course. This is something I have wanted to do for so long but didn't know where to start. This course was perfect to get started. It gives you all you need to feel confident in your own ability. Sophie has such a supportive nature and is very approachable. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to write their own therapeutic stories, Sophie's belief in you means you can't fail!! I didn't realise how many ideas I had until I listened to Sophie's training. Thank you so much Sophie! ”
