Rebekah’s light bulb moment came at 9.30pm one evening as she was rushing around trying to get everything ready for the next day … only to look across at her husband who had been sitting on the couch for the past 2 hours with the TV remote in one hand and a glass of whiskey in the other … and thought “how is this fair?!”

When she talked to her friends about it, they almost all had similar stories. This insight into the second shift and carrying the mental load was the catalyst for Rebekah to look for ways to address this gender imbalance and support mums to realise their professional potential in conjunction with a satisfying and fulfilling family life.

After earning a Master’s degree in Psychology, working as a coach for over 10 years, and becoming a mum herself, Rebekah started her coaching consultancy to help mums balance work and life commitments with more confidence, clarity and calm.

I am passionate about working mums having the same opportunities to realise their professional potential as working dads
