Sophia truly believes that most relationships are worth saving and nurturing. While connecting deeply with individuals, she realized that most often people with issues do not reach out to the right people at the right time for help. There is also a stigma attached to counselling that makes one hesitate to meet a counsellor when there is a need for clarity. She realized that there is a great need for an educational model in relationship enhancement. Thus, by creating safe spaces for dialogues on relationships, The Little Things is based on the principle of early intervention and psycho education. The collective comprising of counsellors, mind coaches, financial and communication experts and doctors, works towards laying a good foundation for relationships with a special focus on marriage. Her team carefully research, collate and present the best of little things people can do effortlessly to ensure big differences in their relationship with themselves and with those around them.
