My Name is Darleen Proud these days… for a while I was Darleen Rankin and I was born Darleen Irwin, in Sydney Australia. I grew up in a great family environment, there were no tragedies to speak of and my parents remain happily married to this day. The eldest of 3 kids, I was my parent's first chance to try out their skills. I think they did a pretty good job!
I could not wait to leave school, I finished year 10 and never went back. I have worn many hats in my 40 odd years of life and in work. While I was growing up, I always felt older than my birthdays indicated and my interest in Human Sexuality has been there for as long as I can remember…
I have two fantastic daughters and enjoy the challenge of parenthood, I married an amazing man a couple of years ago, and who shares my motto…. Life is an Adventure!
I have been involved in relationship building in a business sense for many years, and found those skills easily transfer to coaching and helping people with their sexuality. I love helping people see things from a different angle, to help them move forward instead of stagnating.
Having completed my Master of Health Science – Sexual Health at the University of Sydney, I write a blog and do programs and workshops for all kinds of people to become more informed about a range of sometimes difficult topics. The programs and workshops are fun and informative, working on many facets of life. Your sexuality is only a part of your life balance, but it is an important part, the info I share will help you feel better about yourself and your comfort with sexuality and relationships.
