Testimonials from Graduates
"As a trained family therapist there was a real gap in my understanding of why my female adolescent clients struggled so much with their mothers. At the same time I wondered why I struggled with my own mother, I certainly knew we weren’t all “bad”, though that is what most people believe about teen girls.
Learning about mother-daughter attachment from Rosjke changed everything for me personally and professionally. It helped me heal my past with my mother, it’s opened my eyes to what I never knew I was missing with my own daughter and sparked a life passion within me to help mothers and daughters have their absolute best relationship with each other for the rest of their lives.
Rosjke’s knowledge is changing the lives of women and together we will change the future for all daughters. I know this is true."

"As a therapist and life coach who works primarily with women, going through the Mother-Daughter Attachment training has transformed my practice. It has helped me to further integrate systems theory into my work, removing the blaming/shaming factor that inadvertently comes when addressing relationship issues. I feel liberated in the way I work with my clients using the mother-daughter mapping as a great launching pad for creating insight and awareness and I integrate the mapping with every single client I see.
The resources, reading materials and live training are rich in connection and information. You get to experience what you will be doing - probably the best way to learn! I immediately weaved in the new tools and insight in my therapy practice.
The experience of the training helped me personally in my own journey as a daughter and mother and it helped me to have the courage to continue to listen to my own inner wisdom and desires, which led me to create my coaching practice for women. Mother-Daughter Attachment training has been a seed that continues to bear fruit, both personally and professionally. I highly, highly recommend it."

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® Model 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/
Tutor – Bibi Jamieson
I have a very simple view of life - that love makes the world a better place. I believe that healthy relationships are crucial to emotional wellbeing. I have always been fascinated by how our world impacts relationships, and in turn, how these relationships impact our world.
I started out volunteering as a premarital guidance counsellor - exploring how individual experiences, cultures, beliefs, values, and family histories impacted how couples relate. To deepen my understanding of relationships and develop my skills further, I trained and certified as an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. This forced me to look at my own relationships and bring shadows to light. I’ve also gone on to train as a Relationship & Couples Therapist, and Womanhood coach.
Whilst all these trainings have been beneficial, I still felt there was a gap – the impact of race, culture, and patriarchy in relationships. A lot of the theory I had learned was Eurocentric and mostly written by males. As a Nigerian woman living in the UK, with a mixed-race family, and a very diverse private practice, these theories didn’t seem to consider mine and my clients' lived experiences. I needed more – and stumbling upon one of Rosjke’s articles, I found the missing piece of the puzzle!
Mother-Daughter Attachment training considers generational and cultural themes that affect how we relate as mothers, daughters, wives, and sisters. My clients and I have healed, been empowered, and benefited greatly from Rosjke's work. I am honoured and privileged to be a part of this faculty. www.restoretolove.co.uk
