About

Victoria Sophie

Hi, I’m Victoria. My interest and exploration into the world of health and wellbeing began almost two decades ago and I was introduced tfullsizerendero natural products and complementary healthcare at a young age. After several years of poor health, high stress and two years out of school, I arrived into adulthood with a much greater awareness and understanding of my overall wellbeing.

I resolved to take responsibility for my own health and happiness. I continued to learn of all the many ways we can take a role in preserving and maintaining the most precious aspect of our life, which further developed my knowledge and passion.

I am so grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me and those that I have created, which have inspired me to pursue my passions. I completed my schooling and graduated with a Psychology degree from Durham University, before embarking on full-time training in bodywork, holistic health and very in-depth anatomy and physiology. It was at this point that I wished I had considered biology as an A-level!

However, with great determination and perseverance, I gained my qualifications and enthusiastically embarked on my first ever career! I began work within a health spa – a great experience but certainly not the environment where I wanted to remain – before being chosen as one of the first therapists to work within Liz Earle’s flagship treatment rooms in Sloane Square. This was a time I thoroughly enjoyed; working with the beautiful range of natural products, providing incredible therapeutic treatments and offering holistic lifestyle advice, as well as creating wonderful friendships.

Following this, I decided to go it alone. Running my own business and pursuing lots of post-graduate training in advanced bodywork and natural health. My specialisms lie in Abdominal-Sacral Massage, digestive complaints and fertility related concerns.

I have worked in the holistic health industry since 2007 and have seen the incredible changes people have created for themselves. I love to share knowledge gained through my own experiences, ongoing research and from my training.

I am interested in all things natural and organic and can often be found in the local health food shop or reading a natural health book! I am passionate about my work and thoroughly enjoy meeting new and diverse people, providing guidance and sharing in their experiences. I am dedicated to helping you reach your goals with regard to achieving optimum health and happiness.

I know first-hand how pursuing a healthy and authentic outlook can transform our lives. In my view, natural health is about understanding what’s best for us, nurturing our bodies and our souls and being empowered to take an active role to create the life we wish for.
