Beginning her career as a filmmaker in the Australian film industry, Sonya spent 15 years pursuing this passion which allowed her to travel the world and receive many awards. The proudest of which is the Australian Academy Award for a film she produced called “The Kiss”.
Sonya then spent five years as an event manager, creating memories of a lifetime for her delegates including helicopters over Stonehenge and horse-drawn carriages through the city of London.
These careers taught Sonya strong interpersonal skills, leadership, creative thinking, strategic management and negotiation.
After a period of soul-searching, Sonya studied life coaching and other modalities such as NLP and business coaching, wanting to create a business that empowers people to overcome their internal baggage and lead more fulfilling lives through personal and professional development.
In 2017 she began her business Sonya Furlong Life Coaching, and due to her success, expanded her business in 2019 to launch the Centre for Life Therapies, a one-stop coaching and training hub for high achievers wanting powerful strategies to remove their self-sabotage and fulfil their potential.
