I’m Rosjke Hasseldine, a mother daughter relationship therapist, writer, speaker, and workshop presenter. I have an international reputation for unraveling the root causes of why mothers and daughters fight and misunderstand each other.
Over the last twenty years I have worked with hundreds of mothers & daughters, step-mothers & daughters, and mothers & daughters-in-law, which has given me a unique insight into the causes of mother daughter relationship conflict.
I have developed a model on how to successfully help mothers & daughters, which I call “Mother-Daughter Empowerment Model”. It draws on many existing counseling theories, like family systems, feminist theory, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Mother-Daughter Empowerment Model includes mapping a woman’s mother daughter history, which exposes the themes that are passed on from mother to daughter. Mother Daughter History Maps link what is happening between a mother and daughter with how women are treated and viewed within the family and wider society, as well as highlighting the vital themes necessary for mother daughter empowerment and loving connection.
The mother daughter relationship is vital for women’s psychological development, emotional wellbeing, empowerment and equality.
