DSC Founder

Phoebe Baker

After finding her way through a high-profile, high-conflict divorce that spanned continents, Phoebe Baker has a single and steadfast resolution: that no woman should have to go through what she went through. Lessons, she believes, only need to be learnt once. Her years filled with courts, countless fees, and child support disputes along with all the rest that goes with the unraveling of a life together are not years she wants any other woman to live through. And so, she founded the Divorce Support Collective - A collective to help You help yourself, to help You help your family, and to see you through the thing you never saw coming. And to do all this with as much ease and as little conflict and cost as possible. With a background in international finance and film production, Baker is a Certified Divorce Coach as recognised by the New York Bar. She is a Certified Life Coach, a CDC Certified Divorce Coach and a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner with certificates in Matrix Therapy and Domestic Violence Alert Response.
