Hey there! My name is Lauren, and I have been helping people to understand the power of their minds since 2005.
It all started with overcoming years of chronic physical pain as a teenager by realising I had created an unconscious limiting belief about myself with not knowing my biological father.
In a powerful session with connecting to my Unconscious Mind, I cleared the belief of not being deserving of a good life, being unlovable and in doing so never ever had a stomach ache again. The rest is history!
I am here for you because I understand the journey it takes to truly forgive yourself and move on from the pain of the past. I know how life can feel when you feel utterly hopeless for life feeling any different to the way it is for you now. You feel you’ve been dealt your cards in life and it’s now learning ways to cope with what you’ve been given.
Am I right?
Well, I used to think this way too. Then I discovered the truth.
We can always experience life the way we want to because we have the abilities to make profound transformation and it starts with one key thing:
Your Self Love.
As a priviledged white woman who has had access to opportunities and education without even thinking about it as priviledge, I acknowledge I have been blind to the barriers and trauma faced by Black, Indigenous and People of Colour.
When I saw across the news the tragic murder of George Floyd in May of 2020, I was angered at the racial injust that caused his death. The thought of me not using my white privilege to stand up and be a voice to change inequity in this world, makes me feel like a powerless onlooker who actually has a place of power to do something about changing this.
I am no longer a silent onlooker. I am an active participant in racial justice and the antiracist actions that need to happen immediately. I believe in a world of connection, growth and understanding to have equal opportunitues for all human beings, regardless of their education, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, colour, religion, disability, sexual orientation and beliefs.
At Intuitive Heart Training Academy (my training company), our mission is to give every human being the resources and resourcefulness to have choice in creating their future how they want to. We uphold our values in respecting everyone’s map of the world and continue to celebrate diversity and equal opportunities. I am committed to building a business that is racially diverse, equitable and inclusive. I will do this by making sure my services deliver on these values with my student and client experience.
I committ to ongoing donations to marginalised groups and to spend my money mindfully on businesses where it benefits women of colour where I can. I make sure I continue to be educated such as learning and receiving feedback from Racial Equity Coach, Annie Gichuru. I know there are times I will make mistakes because I am human and on a journey to unlearn and re-learn. I'm dedicated to doing better.
I have loved Personal Development since the age of 16, reading "self help" books since my hypnosis experience that changed my life.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, we started dating in 2004 and are blessed with our two daughters, Amber and Aurora and our puppy dog Halo.
I travelled at least every second year overseas for all of my 20’s and I am so grateful I did this for all the wonderful memories I can reminisce on. I am excited to share travelling the world with our children.
I grew up being the oldest of 3 since my Dad is not my biological father but since he adopted me when I was 2 years old, he is my dad through and through. I also grew up knowing I had other half-siblings “out there”. When I was 25 I learnt that yes my bio father did have other kids after me, making it 6 children to 4 different women. (I was the fourth child of his).
At the age of 26 I was reunited with my older sisters and have a beautiful relationship with Lisa, the eldest of our bio father's estranged children. Lisa knew me as a baby for my first year of life until I needed to go back to Australia from the UK. She wished she could have known about how I was earlier, yet it was always up to me because I forgot she wouldn't know my new adopted name to find me. Thank goodness for Facebook in me messaging her for us to finally be reunited. Having a relationship with her now has been one of the greatest gifts of my life as well as the relationships I have with my sister and brother I grew up with. I love them all so so dearly and am so very proud of the people they are today!
Lauren from a very young age has always been aspiring to discover, learn and experience new ways in which to improve the quality of her life and consequently, the life of others.
Having experienced hypnosis when she was 16 years old that allowed her to overcome years of chronic pain, Lauren’s life had changed forever. It was from that experience onward she knew that in this lifetime it would be her mission to share that feeling of empowerment with as many people as she could to help others realise their infinite potential.
Lauren attended an introduction weekend workshop on NLP in 2005 and she found that she wanted to learn the skills and be able to share what she just experienced with others. She became certified as an NLP Practitioner just months after experiencing the weekend, learning & teaching ever since, now 13 years later she is a Master Trainer & Master Practitioner of NLP and Matrix Therapies along with other modalities such as Hypnosis, Chakra Mindset, and the Universal Laws through Archetypes.
Since 2009 she has trained NLP, Matrix Therapies, Hypnosis & now, Archetypal Coaching, she has taught literally hundreds of wonderful people that say she “transcends age with her wisdom & guidance”.
Lauren was the Vice-Chair Person & Secretary, both volunteer Board Member Roles of the Australian Board of NLP (now NLPAA) as high standards of the NLP field is important to her. She is also a Registered Trainer Member and Clinical Member at the NLPAA (NLP Association of Australia) and a Full Member of IICT (International Institute of Complementary Therapists).
Traveling to Egypt on a spiritual quest like no other tour and to Southern France to study the Sacred Feminine & Masculine, Lauren can’t wait to share more about ancient wisdom at her events and in online programs.
