Laurenne Di Salvo
Why do I do what I do? Very simply, I care, and I'm passionate about development, wellbeing and healing. I care deeply about people, demonstrating this through supporting people in their development, growth, wellbeing and healing. I believe this not only contributes to their own development, but also has a positive flow on impact on their friends, family, colleagues and society at large.
I am an accredited Coach (PCC with ICF), Clinical Hypnotherapist, and Learning & Development Professional. I enjoy working with people at all stages in their development, and from all walks of life, both in Australia and globally. I work with people at a conscious, subconscious and energetic level to determine what’s important for them, both in terms of outcomes, and importantly, in how they show up along the journey. This allows them to be deliberate, purposeful, and aligned with their values.
Applying an integrated approach, we have the opportunity to consider one or more of mind, emotions, body and soul in the way we work together. When combined with formal training, over 25 years’ experience in Coaching, Learning and Development, Hypnotherapy, Marketing, and broad life experience, I'm well placed to facilitate positive and sustainable learning, change, development, wellbeing and healing. I apply a holistic lens to development, supported by a foundation of evidence based coaching practices, hypnotherapy, adult learning theory and soul based approaches.
My focus is on developing the awareness, capabilities and resources that people require for their current and future lives, and that support their wellbeing and ability to navigate the relationships, organisations and environments they engage in. This supports them to thrive at all levels: mental, emotional, physical and at a soul level.
My belief is that there is no ‘one size fits all'. People come with unique strengths, values, needs and goals that we explore together. I provide individuals with a sounding board, tools and strategies, a safe space to explore ideas, fears and aspirations, and to reflect and gain insight. I offer accountability and an opportunity to co-create the plans, actions and mindset necessary to move forward.
I draw on a range of evidence-based coaching and hypnotherapy practices, from positive psychology, solution focused, narrative, ego state, Gestalt, CBT and behavioral approaches, as well as adult learning theory, and holistic approaches to best support individual needs. I work from a strengths-based approach as I believe playing to your strengths allows for greater development, motivation, change and wellbeing.
To be effective, our relationship needs to be based on a foundation of strong rapport and trust. It's for this reason that qualifications alone aren't sufficient. However, when combined with life experience, they are important in ensuring you are partnering with someone who has evidence based tools and techniques to draw on to help guide your development journey. As such, I hold a Graduate Certificate in Coaching and Counselling (Deakin University), I'm an Accredited Organisational Coach with the Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership (IECL), I'm a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF) and I hold a Diploma in Hypnotherapy.
