and more importantly how they can move forward in joy and in ease.
Sonia’s services can help people deal with being overwhelmed, let go of self-criticism and build their confidence and self-acceptance. Through relaxation
meditations, people begin to connect to their inner balance and harmony.
With the Tarot, they get to understand themselves deeper. The mentoring leads them to journey of self-acceptance and fulfilling their own potential.
