Personal and Professional Development Coach | Workshop Facilitator

Laurenne entered coaching with a passion for personal growth and development and a desire to make a difference in people’s lives. It is rarely ” I just hate the job” or “job dissatisfaction” that causes people to get in a rut. Laurenne is passionate about supporting and enabling people to thrive by helping them to learn and grow whilst creating more balance in their lives as a whole.  Maintaining a balanced life whilst achieving career progression is another issue many people face today and Laurenne has the strategies to help you deal with it and move forward.

Using a client-centered approach, Laurenne draws on a number of coaching methodologies to best fit her client’s needs. These include Solution Focused Coaching, Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Motivational Interviewing and elements of Narrative frameworks, as well as mindfulness-based practices.  With a commitment to on-going professional development, Laurenne is a highly regarded, experienced Accredited Coach (PCC with the Int. Coach Federation, and the Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership and Coaching), along with being an Accredited DISC Profiler.

Laurenne brings a combination of extensive formal, relevant training and practical life experience to any coaching relationship. When combined with an extensive corporate background in Learning and Development and Marketing Leadership roles, Laurenne’s toolkit of evidence-based coaching practices ensures she is well placed to facilitate positive and sustainable change for any client she works with.

Laurenne has worked with clients in a number of industries, including the retail, building, manufacturing, education and service sectors. Having transitioned through major career changes herself, as well as having lived in Italy for two years (where she didn’t speak the language initially), Laurenne understands both the challenges and the rewards of moving out of your comfort zone. As a mother of two, she also appreciated her own capacity to keep a healthy balance in life.
