Sophie McCallum is a Self Love Coach
While her father was an actor and her mother a model, Sophie choose a different career path. In her conversation with Voyagemia, she revealed- “I am Sophie McCallum, The Self Love Peddler, A Self Love Coach. I used to run in circles, literally! Running circles at the track at my local Y while dreaming about all of the things I wanted to do, I could do, or maybe even would do one day. As soon as my feet stopped, so did the ideas roaming through my head of all of my dreams I wanted to accomplish.“
Inspired to take on such a career, Sophie revealed she felt the need to hurt herself- to punish herself for sometimes while growing up, “Why?” she have no idea- “I may never know and that’s fine.” – she said, “There’s no one to blame and nothing to be angry about. Self-destructive behavior was part of my journey, and I am thankful for it as I would not change where I am today for anything.“
Sophie McCallum’s parents got married in 1967 after they met at a magazine shoot promoting his film, “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.”. They have been married for more than 5 decades and are still loved up. Sophie also got married and had three beautiful boys. She revealed by the time her first two sons were 1 and 4, she left her full-time job in real estate to be a full-time mom.
Though Sophie and her husband planned to stay together forever, things didn’t go as planned. “Eventually, my boys’ father and I grew apart and we divorced.” Sophie McCallum told Voyagemia “Suddenly I did not have my children with me all the time. I had time to myself and began to drink my feelings away the way I had before I had children.”
This had a negative effect on her and she started drinking, “My drinking got dangerous. My hangovers were such that I would lie on the cold bathroom tile floor in severe pain, not wanting to kill myself but wanting to be dead so that the pain would stop.”- She told Voyagemia.
The pains and struggles led her to self-love coaching, “Harming myself all those years stopped me from truly living to my full potential as I did not allow myself to see that I was worthy of this potential, Sophie McCallum told the outlet- “You create your life expectations for yourself.” She was also thankful to her parents who taught her to start each day with a kind, open, curious mind. Aside from being a Self Love Coach, she is also the host of Life, Love + Good Stuff podcast with her parents, David McCallum and Katherine Carpenter.
