Sophie Cook Newscaster, Writer & LGBT Speaker

Embrace change and be true to yourself

Sophie Cook - TV Newscaster & LGBT Speaker

First ever transgender news anchor in the UK and Europe.

Professional speaker helping people overcome fear and live an authentic and passionate life.

Helping businesses to understand the positive contribution of creating an inclusive environment for their LGBT employees and clients. Helping to reduce the fear of change that so often inhibits businesses and individuals ability to reach their full potential.

Ex-RAF, motorbike racer, newspaper editor, Premier League football and rock photographer, self harm and suicide survivor and transgender.

Despite all of this I lived my life in fear, of loss, of failure, of success, of being sad, of being happy, of myself, of being outed, of being loved.

Because of these fears, no matter how hard I pushed myself to succeed subconsciously I would self sabotage and stop myself from reaching my full potential.

Now I talk about these fears and how I overcame them to be true to and, finally, start loving myself. I discuss the fear of change and how we can reframe our experience of fear to enable us to reach our potential, lessons I learnt on the painful road through loss to my ultimate redemption.
