Meet our founder, Brooke
Writer | Coach | Trainer | Mother | Lover
As a corporate coach, trainer, and leader for more than 13 years, Brooke understands the challenges of managing a pressure-filled career with raising a family and nurturing a long-term relationship. She is passionate about helping women navigate modern relationships and empowering them to live a life that feels good.
She is one of only a handful of Australian licensed Desire Map facilitators, and uses this famed program to place a lens over sexuality in the context of relationships, during motherhood and in our culture of productivity.
Over-thinking, margaritas, and the ocean are some of her favourite things.
When her decade-long marriage ended a few years ago she was thrust into a whole new world of dating (and oh my word, wasn't that an eye opener!)
It was about this time that she began writing in a number of online publications about her varied experiences of marriage and dating. Her blog struck a chord with more than 50,000 readers, many of whom saw themselves reflected in her accounts of heartbreak and exploration.
As a result, she found herself in countless heartfelt conversations with women about the challenges of being in (and out of) relationships, and a common theme quickly emerged - a great deal of women are feeling disconnected, exhausted and numb.
As strong, empowered, modern women we're supposed to be able to have it all, right? So why are so many of us not having "it" at all?
Finding an answer to this question, and a solution to the problem, became an obsession. It's safe to say she became a greedy knowledge hog on all things female desire. This naturally led to further study. Alongside a number of corporate coaching qualifications, Brooke studied an Advanced Diploma in Arts and plans to move on to a Bachelor of Development and Training to complement her role as mentor and coach. She is also a member of Esther Perel's Sessions, a platform offering collaboration and professional development for psychologists and coaches working in this field.
She continues to learn everything she can about female desire - consuming countless books, articles and podcasts in the brief downtime she manages to squeeze in between caring for her two children and doing the laundry. But most of all, she loves learning straight from the source - talking to women about their experiences of motherhood, love, and sex.
