Laurenne Di Salvo
After working in Learning and Development for many years, I wanted to take my passion for personal and professional development further. This led me into coaching in a more formal capacity. What I love about coaching is that it empowers you to discover your own motivations, values, strengths and solutions. This makes learning sustainable, with strategies you can use for life. I therefore apply a coaching approach when working one on one with clients, when facilitating and training groups, and when designing and developing learning programs.
I don't think I ever got over being an idealistic teenager wanting to change the world. These days though, I love being a part of supporting people to change their individual worlds.
I love that coaching can help to you to flourish. Coaching can support you to find your spark, to increase your confidence, find direction, overcome self-limiting beliefs, step-up in your career, and support you on a journey of self development and personal and professional growth. I find working with people to do this incredibly rewarding and I feel privileged to be invited to share this journey with my clients.
In addition to coaching and workshop facilitation, I'm also a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend and I'm fairly partial to our cat and dog! My life is wonderful, exciting, mundane, fulfilling, challenging and so much more at different times, just as I'm sure yours is. I try to savour it all.

Can I let you in on a secret?
We are all on a journey and none of us has it all figured out!
I love the way Russ Harris puts this:
‘I don’t want you to think I’ve got my life completely in order. It’s more as if you’re climbing your mountain over there and I’m climbing my mountain over here. It’s not as if I’ve reached the top and I’m having a rest. It’s just that from where I am on my mountain, I can see obstacles on your mountain that you can’t see. So I can point those out to you, and maybe show you some alternative routes around them.’
This is what I can offer you - perspective, an alternative view and feedback and support on where you're stepping and where you're heading. This can help you make choices from a place of greater self-awareness and understanding.
To be effective, the coach-client relationship needs to be based on a foundation of strong rapport and trust. It's for this reason that qualifications alone don't make a good coach. However, when combined with life experience, they are important in ensuring your coach has some evidence based tools and techniques to draw on to help guide your coaching journey.
Having completed a Graduate Certificate of Coaching and Counselling, I bring a combination of formal training and practical experience to the coaching relationship. When combined with over 20 years' experience in Learning and Development, Marketing and Coaching, as well as broad life experience, I am well placed to facilitate positive and sustainable change, development and wellbeing at both individual and group levels.
Coaching is at the core of what I do, be this in one-on-one coaching sessions, in group coaching and training, or in the design, development and delivery of learning programs and workshops.
Using a client-centred approach, I draw on a number of evidence-based coaching approaches and adult learning theory to best support your needs. These include Positive Psychology, Solution Focused Coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Motivational Interviewing and elements of Narrative frameworks, as well as mindfulness based practices and adult learning theory. I work with you to explore your values, strengths and goals.
My approach is one of empowerment, supporting and guiding you to discover you own solutions and to implement the plans, actions and mindset necessary to make life-enhancing changes. I do this with authenticity, honesty, warmth, empathy and courage.
As your coach, my focus is to support you to thrive.
Let me support you to grow, to achieve your goals and to be your best you
