Sophy Banks


Sophy jointly set up the first “Heart and Soul”, or Inner Transition group in Totnes in 2006. She co-founded Transition Training and has delivered Launch and other workshops to transition projects around the world. A trainer for over 20 years she has worked as an engineer, information systems consultant and psychotherapist and has considerable experience of voluntary sector and community projects.

Sophy has a particular interest in systemic approaches to all things, and especially looking across disciplines to seeing a broad and inclusive view. After many years of living in Hackney and playing football on the marshes there she now lives in Devon where she gets out to the moors and beaches as often as transition and her vegetable garden allow.
