Sarah is most famously known for presenting on CBeebies (Tikkabilla, Higgledy House, Zingzillas, Mighty Mights).
She is now a very proud and busy mum to her two boys Phoenix and Indy. Sarah has a 30-year ongoing career in television, film and media and is currently an award-winning blogger, who covers all aspects of emotional pressures we face every day.
Sarah has a personal understanding of how demanding and debilitating mental health can be, having fought it herself her whole life in some way or another. Her own experiences and empathy come from issues which started with bullying at school, then developing an eating disorder, fighting and proudly beating addiction and her acknowledgment of the common denominator in most mental health situations….depression. Her understanding, compassion and desire to reach out and make a difference to society makes her an amazing figure to stand by HOPE.
Sarah is keen to fight the stigma of mental health and promote understanding for something that can affect you for the rest of your life if left unrecognised.

All have been highlights in a career that Joanna feels truly blessed to be enjoying.

With so many of our young people suffering identity issues, we are more than proud to have a strong and inspirational role model like Sophie for them to be able to relate to. Her own experiences in self-harming, surviving suicide and her transgender journey, all give her a unique level of insight and empathy for the young people we see every day.
Ex-RAF, motorbike racer, newspaper editor, Premier League football and rock photographer, Sophie Cook is a media personality and activist whose wide portfolio of work includes presenting, producing, writing and photography. She became the first transgender woman to work in football’s Premier League as club photographer for AFC Bournemouth following her transition from Steve to Sophie in the summer of 2015.
Europe’s first trans TV newscaster, Sophie has hosted her own TV and radio chat shows and is an experienced broadcaster. In April 2017 she was selected by the Labour Party to contest the East Worthing and Shoreham seat, increasing the Labour vote by 114% and narrowly missing out on becoming the UK’s first transgender MP, for now. Sophie’s first book ‘Not Today: How I chose life’ - autobiography, political manifesto, philosophy and self-help book is due for publication during 2018.
