Working 1:1 with Sophie
Ethics & Confidentiality
Sophie treats the session you have booked as a Divine contract, and as an intuitive and therapeutic practitioner holds the highest outcome as an intention for you. She honours your free will, and will not give you prescriptive advice. Sophie sees her role as a therapeutic facilitator, channel of intuitive guidance, divine energy worker, and sacred space creator.
Sophie highly values your commitment to personal and spiritual growth, and will uphold your right to confidentiality. All and any information given by you during your sessions will be held in the strictest confidence.
Sophie sees developing trust in emotionally-safe spaces to be a key to healing and developing confidence in your inner power. This is why she creates defined boundaries around sessions in order for proper and safe processing of emotions and energy.
Sophie intends for her work to honour, respect, empower, inspire, liberate, support and validate you. As Sophie values your own inner knowing, so she wishes to deeply support you in developing trust in yourself, and the power you have to create a life of meaning, personal fulfilment and wholeness.
Sophie will have explained the structure of the session to you clearly during your Discovery Call. The session takes the form of an intuitive transmission which can comprise guided healing journeys, contact with Sacred Guides, deep energy work and spiritual guidance. You are welcome to share before the transmission starts, and give feedback during the pauses that arise during it. It is greatly appreciated if you do not interrupt during periods of deep channeling or ask 'closed' questions (requiring yes or no answers) that break the flow of the energy. There is always time at the end to share your thoughts and feelings.
You need to read or listen to You Are a Goddess and blog posts before applying for a session.
Showing Up on Zoom or Skype
It's important that you show up for the session on time. Due to the specific nature of her intuitive work, and the way in which Sophie prepares for you, it is not possible for her to delay the start of your session. If you are unavailable at the start time, the session will not go ahead, and you are subject to the cancellation terms given below.
Connecting with Sophie on Zoom:
The default platform for your sessions is on Zoom. You'll be sent a link when you book, and on the confirmation email under 'Location'. Just before your appointment time, click the link and you'll be taken to the meeting window.
If you prefer Skype, please let Grace know in advance via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Connecting with Sophie on Skype:
Sophie's Skype name is sophiebashfordtemple
Sophie will connect with you on Skype least 45 minutes prior to the start time.
Please view your account at least 30 minutes before the start time; Sophie will send you a chat message to check you are connected.
Aim to be online and ready 5-10 minutes before the start time. Sophie will call you at the start time in order to commence your session.
Please familiarise yourself as best you can with the Skype or Zoom application before the session.
Please note that it is not always possible to connect with Sophie's assistant via email at the time of your session.
You are welcome to record the session if you wish, for personal home use only. Under no circumstances must this transmission be used publicly, sold, or for advertising purposes.

Payment must be received prior to the session start time.
Please make every effort to make sure that your equipment is working for the session. In the event of a poor connection or technical issues out of our or your control, the session will be re-arranged.
Please make sure that it is only you in the room at the time of the session, and that it is as quiet and undisturbed as possible. If there are noise disturbances other than unavoidable light traffic, natural or environmental sounds, Sophie reserves the right to end the call. If you have a dog, they sometimes bark in response to the energy transmission. This is fine in moderation, however if it becomes too loud Sophie may ask you to place the animal in another room in order to complete the session.
Please put all mobile (cell) phones on silent and ensure that any message notification sounds on your computer, tablet or laptop are muted.
