Hey there! I’m Brooke. I’m a facilitator and executive coach, a top writer for Medium.com, and a mother of two.

My mission is to provide the roadmap, mindset and support for women to live vibrant, connected lives. I believe you can transform your entire life by tending to your inner spark. It’s the secret sauce of wellness that’s rarely spoken about.

I want other women to feel the same depth of connection and fulfillment, vibrancy and spaciousness as I feel. But it wasn’t always like this…

I’ll never forget the day my husband of 12 years left with these parting words. ‘You’ll see, nothing will really change when I’m gone. I’ll still help with the kids and that’s all you need me for anyway’.

It took my breath away and I crumpled to the floor.

I’d been so busy proving to the world that I was capable and responsible, I’d lost my tenderness and sense of self. I was all sharp edges and criticisms. I was blank.

I was drowning in expectations and responsibilities, wondering how much longer I could keep it together but not wanting to compromise on my standards or give up my career goals. I wanted the beautiful house overlooking the ocean, the overseas holidays, the private school education for the kids, the career success and lots more.

We were going through the motions, ticking off to-do lists, tag teaming Sunday morning sleep-ins and daycare pickups. We made a great team on the logistics front but it wasn’t enough.

There was some part of me that knew things weren’t solid, that I wasn’t on the right path. Oprah calls it ‘the whispers’. All we talked about was life admin, work and kid stuff. We were successful by external standards but it didn’t feel meaningful. Intimacy had fallen to the bottom of the to-do list, and honestly, I wasn’t that disappointed about it. I was tired and distracted. Plus, it felt like work anyway!

Enter the Quiet Desperation stage - when everything on the outside is a dream come true but there’s a longing that exists everywhere - in your cells, your heart and your spirit. Something had to give.

Can you relate?

Are you stuck in a cycle of endless doing and not sure how to find time for you?

Can you remember the last time you felt truly satisfied and at peace?

 WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?

It took some time, but I (mostly) healed from my divorce and learnt how to create a life that felt good on the inside:

  • I’m clearer about my priorities and create the time I need to maintain my sense of self, and to stay tender and grounded even when exhausted and frustrated

  • I’m in control of my calendar and have a proven method for balancing the competing priorities of work, family and personal wellbeing

  • I stay close to my desire and create the conditions for more aliveness and security in my relationship - and the pathway back when we’re far apart!

I say Brene Brown’s ‘Daring Greatly’ book saved my life and I mean it. She taught me about vulnerability and courage and helped me make sense of what had happened in my marriage. Her work planted the seed for how to live whole-heartedly.

I want all of this for you too.

I’m bursting with everything I’ve learnt (and continue to learn) and it’s a privilege to share it in articles, workshops, podcasts, programs, social media and more to help more women find the sweet spot in love and life.
