Sophie is a bestselling author who has worked in the field of human development, esoteric psychology and corporate culture change for over twenty years. She is a Senior Trainer with More To Life, a global educational foundation that has helped transform the lives of thousands since its inception in 1981.
B.C. (before cancer) she ran an award-winning business consultancy with Dr. K. Bradford Brown, an exceptional psychologist and theologian who became her mentor and business partner until his death in 2007. Together they delivered change programmes to diverse organisations including Tesco, British Airways, Unilever, the NHS and the Mandela Rhodes Foundation in South Africa.
Following her ‘terminal cancer diagnosis’ in 2014, Sophie drew on all her skills, wisdom and tenacity to pull herself back from the brink of death and create her life anew. Her first book, The Cancer Whisperer, became an instant bestseller when it was published by Hodder and Stoughton in 2015 and has since been translated into eleven languages. It placed her on a global stage in this arena as a keynote speaker and voice for patients in the media. Sophie still has cancer, but cancer does not have her.
All Sophie’s work is dedicated to awakening the mind and freeing the spirit through bold, authentic and creative engagement with the challenges of life. Her next book, Lifeshocks – And How to Love Them, is being published in June 2018.
Sophie has written articles for leading magazines, blogs and newspapers. She is a regular online columnist for the U.S. publication Psychology Today. She is available as a freelance writer and inspirational speaker.
Sophie’s academic background is in English literature, psychology and organisational change. She is a founding fellow of Professor William Torbert’s Action Inquiry Associates and an agent of change who measures leadership not by how many followers someone has but by how many other leaders they create. Her passport and right to vote are among her most prized possessions. Sophie is a devoted wife to her husband John and grateful mother to their turbo-charged daughter Gabriella.
