Testimonials from previous group

Sophy is an incredibly skilled facilitator who manages to stir together complex knowledge from different fields, with rich life experiences and her relatable and loving humanity. The methodologies I learned through her HHC training helped me to bring insights and relief to conflicts that occurred in communities I am part of. Her teachings also deepened my understanding of systemic issues and pointed me towards possible solutions. I feel lucky to keep learning with her.

Previous participant

Facilitators supporting Sophy will include..

Theresa Fend: I am a facilitator, community builder and climate activist committed to fostering regenerative cultures through collaboration, care and play. I am curious about the intersections of collective trauma, somatics, creativity and social change.

Dita B Vizoso:  I am dedicated to regeneration, of people and land.  I convene and hold spaces for deep inquiry and composting. I’m walking and sharing the path where both grieving and joyous hope nourish my own thriving and that of others.  I invite the wisdom of the physical world, of our bodies and the life around us, to support the development and strengthening of return paths to health. Health of culture, of our selves, of the land.

Kenny McCarthy: I long for a world more alive. I’m a facilitator, programme manager, systems change practitioner and trainee Core Process Psychotherapist. I work towards social systems and communities that reflect our most prosocial values. I have a 10 year career in social change and am currently Programme and Partnership lead for the Food, Farming and Countryside Commission, Freelance Facilitator for Ipsos Mori and member of Community Psychology for Tiny House Community Bristol.

Sarah Pletts: Sarah has recovered from chronic illness and is passionate about being an embodied, healthy human. As a Grief Tender she is inspired by the transformative power of holding space and witnessing feelings with others as a ‘return path’ to healing community. She loves to express creativity, play and intimacy to weave a balanced life and build connections. She talks to squirrels and crows on Hackney Marshes, lives with partners and chosen family.

Daniel Ford: Daniel is a strategist, process designer and facilitator who works with people towards just and regenerative change. He’s nerdy about the process of change; how power is distributed; who decides; how we keep learning and adapting to changing contexts. He recently spent two years co-facilitating the Boundless Roots Community, exploring themes of power, polarisation and cultural change, which is where he met Sophy and first got stirred by her work on healthy human culture. He’s a strategist at Forum for the Future, a Huddlecraft host and a Lewis Deep Democracy practitioner. 

Sarah McAdam: Sarah played a key role in Transition Network’s shift to shared governance and remains active in the international Transition Hubs Group, an ongoing experiment in collaboration across difference and distance and the transparent distribution of power, resources and accountabilities.  She has skills and experience in facilitation, process design and network weaving. She is currently focusing on work that explores and supports transformational governance, regenerative culture and meaningful solidarity, when she’s not resting under oak trees and letting stuff go.
