Hi there! I’m Wendy McCallum, LLB, NNCP, RHN, Speaker, Author & Co-Active Wellness & Accountability Coach.
As your Coach, I’ll guide you to a healthier & maintainable place of balance and help you achieve your wellness &/or weight loss goals on the way. We’ll do this through structured sessions using a combination of motivating education, co-active coaching and accountability.
Ten years ago, I left an established (kind of lucrative & super-safe) career in law that never really jived with my values or allowed me any healthy balance. Leaving law took a commitment to myself & my priorities and, even with a solid transition plan, it felt like an incredible risk — but I’ve never looked back.
I’m now following my own life’s purpose in a coaching role that fills me up EVERY day. I’ve spent eight incredibly satisfying years coaching others towards healthy change, weight loss, balance and increased daily joy.
With my clients and in my own journey, I’ve learned A LOT about what gets us stuck, and what we need to get un-stuck. And how easy it is to rely on what others tell you you should be doing, instead of putting in the sweat equity in to figure that out for yourself.
I’m a Co-Active Coach, trained by the internationally-credentialed Coach Training Institute (CTI). I love the co-active coaching model for wellness because it provides a powerful process for engaging with others that’s well-supported by current scientific research.
I’m also a graduate of the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, with years of more focussed wellness & healthy weight loss coaching under my belt.
My wellness coaching focuses on all the stuff that really matters when it comes to making change. Sure, I’ll help you with the practical questions of what you should be eating and how to make it happen, but we’ll also delve into the “real life” stuff that’s really holding you back from making healthy change. That might be:
- unhealthy eating & inconsistent prep habits,
- emotional eating behaviours,
- negative self-talk & a fear of failure,
- poor stress & time management,
- poor sleep habits,
- lack of mindfulness, including around eating habits,
- lack of movement/exercise,
- obstacles to personal happiness,
- challenging family situations (including “picky eaters”), and
- other social relationships that might be making it hard for you to make change.
I can help. In fact, it’s what I do best. Together, we’ll sort through the overwhelm. We’ll mine for your core values, discover what lights YOU up, and get you on a clearer course for better balance & a whole bunch more joy.
My one-step-at-a-time, whole-life approach is the only way to make permanent, positive change happen. I see it work in my personal coaching practice time & time again. I’ve helped hundreds of busy people make change, and I can help you too!
Why will it be different this time? Because you’ll have me — your personal coach and biggest cheerleader — motivating & supporting you to permanent change. Together will drill down and figure out what’s got you stuck: whether it’s a lack of knowledge, time, coping strategies, confidence, or something more.
I set you up for success. My approach is based on the time-tested truth that nothing too extreme or complicated ever works for very long. We’re all leading busy lives and need a straightforward, simple approach that we can actually make happen.
My wellness coaching is personal. It’s the opposite of “one-size-fits-all”. We design your coaching sessions around what you need to succeed. Your sessions are tailored to help you build the healthy toolkit you need to achieve your best life, and maintain it.
When I say I can give you everything you need, I mean everything, including:
- motivating, individualized education,
- co-active coaching (we’re in it together!),
- emotional support,
- stress & time management coaching,
- weekly accountability,
- healthy food & lifestyle support,
- strategies for lifelong maintenance & balance.
Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? It is (promise!) and you can absolutely do this!
Contact me if you’re interested in become a private coaching client. I offer a three-month program that we’ll carefully design together to ensure you get what you need most from our sessions.
We’ll start by booking an initial consultation (no program pre-commitment is necessary), and we’ll go from there!
