Sophie Sabbage

A mindset alchemist - giving a transformational talk and masterclass

Sophie Sabbage

Sophie is a psychologist, business consultant, patient activist, speaker and bestselling author.

Sophie has become a familiar personality following the stunning success of her bestselling book The Cancer Whisperer, which placed her on a global stage as an authority on how to thrive in adversity.

Sophie spent 20 years heading up an award-winning business consultancy helping leading brands respond creatively to changing winds.

That all changed when in 2014 when she was told she had late stage 'incurable' lung cancer. She was 48yrs old, happily married with a 4-year-old daughter.

Since then, Sophie has spent the last 5 years transforming a terminal diagnosis into one of the most vibrant & productive periods of her life. She has made numerous media appearances, become an internationally recognised author, built a speaking business and become a high-profile patient activist, carving out a new narrative around cancer. Her two Sunday Times bestsellers are The Cancer Whisperer and more recently Lifeshocks - and how to love them.
