To create a more socially, economically and environmentally just world, we must think big and follow through with big actions. Healing our society requires that we heal our organizations, and ourselves. What we do on a small scale can eventually have an impact on our larger world. Change may sometimes frighten us, but often big change is exciting and full of hope.
BIG WAVES supports organizations and change makers to address individual inner obstacles, confront interpersonal challenges, and build skills and imagination to think and act systemically toward their vision for the future.
Guide others through the unpredictability of change.
I have been fortunate to work with Brook as my leadership coach over the past two years. She’s helped me navigate the challenges of being a first-time manager in a busy startup environment. Through Brook’s coaching, I was able to discover things I haven’t seen for myself and how they affect the relationships I have with my direct reports. I learned the techniques and tools to respond effectively in difficult situations, repair relationships, and lead with confidence. Brook has also helped me better understand my personal values and what I find intrinsically motivating – helping me shape the career that I want. I always look forward to my sessions with Brook. She’s able to quickly adapt to my needs each time we need – from tackling immediate issues with direct reports to working on long-term goals.

Brook is a fantastic coach and change facilitator. I went to see her when I was working through some big questions about conflict and Transformative Justice in my personal and professional life. With skill, compassion, and humour, she helped me to access my inner resources using somatics, mindfulness, and other embodiment techniques. Our sessions have supported me enormously in my own practice as a mediator and facilitator. Brook is a true expert in personal growth, conflict transformation, and change-making. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a trauma-informed, socially engaged embodiment coach.

“In my organization, part of my role is facilitating change and transformation. It can be hard – there’s some burnout, some doubt, some resistance. Over the past couple of years Brook has helped me with multiple strategies to help with motivation, buy-in and engagement. Her knowledge around conflict dynamics, systems change, and group psychology, and her ability to map out power and how it shows up in subtle ways in relationships has been absolutely essential to the successes we have seen.”

Brook’s style is incredibly appreciated. She is practical, knowledgeable, relatable and has a deeply holistic approach. People feel as though they are being seen as full human beings and often comment that Brook made them think of something that they had never considered before. Like a mirror reflecting back to us, she was able to help us see our own dynamics, what we personally struggled with, and where we could grow so that we could use that information towards becoming a better team every day.
