Sophie Trew

Sophie Trew works as a Breathwork Coach and Holistic Cancer Guide. In 2016 she co-created Trew Fields Festival- the world’s first cancer awareness & holistic health festival. Sophie works to empower people beyond a diagnosis to take an active role in their health, realise their self-healing capacities and to achieve their unique health intentions. She runs monthly online Breathwork for cancer groups and works with clients globally on a 1:1 basis.

“After being diagnosed with blood cancer in 2014 when I was 23, I became my own guide spending years researching and training in holistic health. I now have almost 10 years of study and experience in the field of holistic cancer health. I work with 1-on-1 clients in a personalised, trauma-informed way using breathwork, nervous system tools, energy healing, mindset coaching, meditations and visualisations.”

This experiential workshop uses the simplest, yet one of the most supportive tools available to you – your breath. You will be guided and supported in this session to come home to yourself with tools and techniques, such as self-massage, breath, gentle movement and visualisation, we will open up the respiratory system — sometimes for the first time — bringing in energy and vitality.

This guided breathwork can release tension, stress & anxiety, improve mental clarity and give you the space to breathe. 

The way you breathe affects every system and function in your body. We’ll end with a deep relaxation and a chance for you to rest.
