I’m Wendy McCallum,
Certified Alcohol Coach.
I found freedom from alcohol through the same compassion-based model I now use in my one-on-one coaching, and my group coaching program.
It’s worked for thousands of people, and it can work for you too.
See for yourself.
How would it feel to let go of the guilt and make alcohol small & irrelevant in your life?
Join me to learn more about how to break the cycle, and start taking back your one amazing life.
Let me guess. You're here because...
- You’re a little too eager for that drink at the end of the day.
- What used to be one glass is now two or three.
- You're drinking more often & enjoying it less.
- You’re questioning if you're drinking too much.
- You’re tired of waking up with regret.
- You make rules for yourself about drinking, only to break them the next day.
- You’re SO tired of thinking about drinking.
I get it.
I've been there.
I'm guessing you're a lot like me:
- You’re a smart, successful person.
- In fact, by all objective standards, you’ve got a pretty great life.
- You try to eat well and exercise -- the irony of your drinking habit is not lost on you.
- You want to change your relationship with alcohol, but you just can’t imagine a life without it.
- You’ve googled “healthy drinking guidelines” &/or “how to moderate” more than once.
- The fact that you can’t get this under control is driving you nuts.
I know what you’re thinking -- remember,
I was there too:
Here's the truth:
Alcohol's been lying to you.
- This is not your fault: alcohol is an addictive substance.
- You're not weak, and you’re definitely not alone.
- You may not be an "alcoholic", but you're probably a "gray area" drinker like I was.
- Either way, it's irrelevant, because alcohol is taking more than it's giving.
- You can AVOID rock-bottom.
- Life can be SO much better than this.
You don’t need alcohol to cope, relax, sleep, or have fun.
In fact, when you’re alcohol-free, you’ll sleep like a baby.
Your anxiety will decrease, you’ll cope better, and you’ll have more fun. (For real.)
You don't need to miss out on anything -- your daily joy will actually skyrocket!
I'm not done! Here's the best news of all:
You don't need to commit to an alcohol-free life forever.
Yup, you read that right.
A mindful break can change EVERYTHING.
My private coaching and group coaching programs are designed to give you all of this.
Whether you've been down this road before or are taking your very first step, I'll meet you where you are, and we'll go from there.
I'll be by your side until you've made alcohol truly small & irrelevant in your life.
It's not about trying "harder"; you've done that.
Over and over.
It's about trying "different" -- and I can show you how to make alcohol truly irrelevant in your life.
(By the way, if you want to read my personal alcohol story, you can find it HERE - I think you'll see we have a few things in common!)
Ready to talk? No pressure, let's just get to know each other a little and see if we're a good fit!
(All coaching - private and group - is done online through video sessions - wherever you live, we can work together!)
Hey there, I'm Wendy McCallum.
In addition to my training in and 12+ years of experience with burnout & balance coaching, I have undergone rigorous, specialized coach training that allows me use the ground-breaking methodology developed by The Naked Mind Institute, and science-based approach to making alcohol truly small & irrelevant in your life.
If you aren't familiar with Annie Grace and her books (start with 'This Naked Mind'!), her unique approach is an absolute game-changer.
It's based in freedom (not deprivation), grace (not judgment or shame), and transforming whole lives (not just physical habits).
The results speak for themselves...
"When I found Wendy I felt completely stuck. I was convinced I was failing miserably in every aspect of my being from motherhood to my professional career to my personal relationships. Mostly, I felt that I had lost “me” and that my light had faded. Wendy’s non-judgmental, supportive approach created a safe space for me to explore why I was feeling so stuck, and she gave me the tools I needed at exactly the right time to help me find me again. Wendy shed light on the fact that alcohol was my greatest barrier to living my best life, and she helped me to see that it really wasn’t a wonderful love affair between me and the red wine after all. I am forever grateful to Wendy for giving me the support that I needed to get un-stuck."
"When I started with Wendy, quitting was not a goal. I wanted to moderate my drinking and Wendy was just fine with that. After examining my personal relationship with alcohol and gaining insight through Wendy's coaching, I started to realize that my beliefs about alcohol and everything I thought it was giving me were not true. She has been an amazing coach and has provided me with tools that I didn’t even know existed. I never thought I would be alcohol-free and here I am, enjoying life more than ever!"
"The last few years I had been firmly in the grips of a personal struggle with alcohol. I tried everything to either moderate or eliminate it all together. Nothing worked. I was out of options, miserable and losing hope. The shame and guilt were all-consuming and only seemed to fuel the continued failures. I finally accepted I could not do this alone and needed help.
I started working one-on-one with Wendy and we quickly established a professional relationship where I felt safe to fully examine all parts of my past and present life with alcohol. She met me where I was, no judgment whatsoever. Wendy's professional training allowed me to slowly look at the pain behind my drinking. We took the time to break down the stories and beliefs I held for years around alcohol and its role in my life.
With Wendy's professional support I'm building the foundation to live my alcohol-free life with integrity, honesty, and accountability."
"Coaching with Wendy has completely changed my life! The improvements in my confidence, my productivity, my physical and mental health, and most importantly my family relationships have truly been the best gift I have ever given myself. Her coaching gave me the tools and accountability I needed to overcome my reliance on alcohol.
I will be forever grateful to Wendy and would absolutely recommend her as a coach. Think of it as an investment in yourself that will pay dividends for years to come. It was the best money I've ever spent."
"Coaching with Wendy has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! I was a grey area drinker for years but moderating or trying to quit on my own never worked. I decided it was time to invest in me and I needed a different approach. Having the personal, individualized support from Wendy was a game-changer.
Wendy offers a non-judgmental, professional, and effective approach; identifying drinking triggers, giving practical tools and advice, and reframing the perspective around alcohol - reducing the cognitive dissonance. Her insight and encouragement has been invaluable. She is truly a gifted coach - her coaching sessions have been life changing."
"My life, though high-functioning, was lackluster, with an undercurrent of anxiety that was never truly made better by alcohol. Working with Wendy, I never felt pressured or that I was not the one in control of my choice when to stop. It was, for me, a process that happened with education and a strong committed coach who was in my corner and knew exactly what to say to support me. As I worked to be free from alcohol, Wendy always met me with dignity and grace. I highly recommend coaching with Wendy."
"Wendy brings a refreshing sense of humor, a grounded authenticity, and a strong but loving way of holding me accountable in coaching. She sees the "me" that I don't always see: a woman who is not broken, perfectly designed by nature, and capable of taking care of herself. I am learning in this process of coaching to come back home to myself, and to do it with grace and compassion. I can't recommend Wendy enough; together we make a great team as I continue to shift towards more peace and freedom."
