HR PROFESSIONAL TURNED POET WHO NOW TEACHES INTERPERSONAL AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS TO SUPPORT PEOPLE TO REMOVE THEIR MASKS, FEEL WHOLE AND MOVE FORWARD IN THEIR LIVES.
SOVEL USES THE SKILLS OF POETRY, WRITING AND SPOKEN WORD TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO FIND THEIR OWN TRUTH.
One of Sovel’s earliest memories is that of her late mother being dismissed from work because she had spoken the truth. There and then Sovel made a promise to herself that when she grew up she would make sure no one would be dismissed from work for the same reason.
Many years later, Sovel came to realise, through working in Human Resources, that people could be dismissed for speaking the truth, however, it was the intention behind the truth that mattered the most and their values.
The promise she had made as a youngster kept her connected to her childlike curiosity, continually giving birth to innate aspects of herself, enabling her to see the simplicities in complexities.
Sovel searched firstly outwardly and then inwardly to find a way to articulate this to support others to support themselves. She initially used this “knowing” in her previous office life, sharing her insights through in-house discussions, workshops, mentoring, coaching and speaking opportunities.
As this aspect of her continued to grow she walked towards her true self, consciously connecting with her unique gift, purpose and life phrases: Just Being Me, Truth Speaks and Catch Yourself.
In doing so her voice and words of poetic wisdom were given the soil and channel to flourish and share.
Her poetry, prose and elongated snippets of thoughts unpick and rearrange the complexities of life into simple, yet profound solutions to understand and move forward into the wholeness of self and life itself.
