We train therapists and coaches around the world how to work with mothers and daughters of all ages.
We provide mothers and daughters with education, relationship help, and free resources.

Executive Director/Founder – Rosjke Hasseldine

My passion for understanding and healing the mother-daughter bond started over thirty years ago when my daughter was born. This led me to graduate with a masters’ degree in Counseling from Indiana University in 1997, gain accreditation and registration with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and Professional membership of the American Counseling Association. I have worked with thousands of mothers and daughters from different countries and cultures, developed the Mother-Daughter Attachment ModelTM, and written two books, “The Silent Female Scream” and “The Mother-Daughter Puzzle”. I speak at professional and women’s conferences, have spoken at the United Nations Commission for the Status of Women, and been featured on Canadian television and a HuffPost UK podcast. Through Mother-Daughter Coaching International, I pass on what I have learned to therapists and coaches, and mothers and daughters. For more biographical details visit www.rosjke.com/about-rosjke/


Director of Operations – Kim Sedgwick

I grew up in a feminist family with close ties to my mother and grandmothers. I benefited greatly from their generational wisdom, and I could also sense the tension. I learned from a young age that mother-daughter relationships are complicated, and I was eager to understand why. This led me to pursue a degree in Gender and Women’s Studies and later co-found Red Tent Sisters, a business dedicated to creating a safe space to “talk about the things we don’t talk about.” In my work as a facilitator and CTI-trained coach, I have had the privilege of connecting with hundreds of women and have experienced firsthand the transformative power of storytelling and giving voice to that which has been silenced. My role with Mother-Daughter Coaching International is a natural extension of my life-long dedication to female empowerment. www.redtentsisters.com

Growing up with two sisters meant that I experienced parts of three mother-daughter relationships. Now as I raise a girl myself, I feel both fulfilled and challenged by my mother-daughter relationships every day. Finding Rosjke’s work felt like coming home.  Rosjke’s model has been the perfect culmination of my work as a Feminist, Child and Family Therapist and Teen Girls Life Coach. In all my years of schooling, the mother-daughter relationship was overlooked and undervalued, which I feel mimics the role of women in society. I am passionate about this work as it gives a voice to the many issues we deal with as mothers and daughters, providing much needed solutions to the challenges that we face with each other and within our patriarchal culture. I am particularly passionate about supporting teen girls and their mothers because during my teen years, I felt a huge divide with my mother and always desired to understand it. I had a sense that it was bigger than the two of us. This experience motivated me to work on my own relationship with my mother and gain a better understanding of all the women in my family, while sharing my knowledge and experience to support mothers with their own daughters. I am delighted and honored to be a founding teaching faculty member of Mother-Daughter Coaching International and continue to support mothers and daughters to grow in their relationships. www.liveandbloom.net



Teaching Faculty – Brittney Scott

I am the oldest daughter and the mother of a daughter. I am a new mom turning to my mom for support. I feel fulfilled and growing pains from this new role and my own mother-daughter relationship. As a licensed professional counselor, I have worked with many girls and women and noticed that my work always took us back to the relationship with their mother and I was lost on what to do. That is how I found Rosjke and everything clicked! I finally had a tool to help girls and women move past being stuck with how to use their voice and get what they needed from their relationship with their mother. I am so passionate about working with mothers and daughters because it is the most important relationship that we have and the one that changes the most. I enjoy seeing relationship lightbulb moments and healing that is so powerful, that it changes the next generation. When women know how to use their voice, they learn how to get their needs met in a healthy, successful way. I want mothers and daughters to feel confident in their relationships that it spills over into other parts of their lives. I believe that healing happens with knowledge and the mother-daughter puzzle will open your eyes to who your family is and can become. I am honored and excited to be a teaching member of Mother-Daughter Coaching International and be a part of the healing that takes place when mothers and daughters listen to each other. www.unshatteredcounseling.com
