Back in 2016 a respected senior colleague told me I was courageous and it subsequently emerged as one of my top strengths through personality profiling... it has stayed with me ever since and inspired me to set up Courageous People Partners two years later!
I am Laura Shipp, a qualified practitioner and coach, also the founder of Courageous People Partners & Courageous Wellbeing. I am a cat lover, keen gardener and travel enthusiast...
I am great at building rapport and being able to dance in the moment, challenging clients often with humour to dig deeper and achieve clarity of purpose and goals. I am passionate about personal and professional development and have confidence in the courage and determination of the people I work with to find and apply their own solutions. Change is often rapid, and I love seeing my clients have that instant light-bulb moment.
I come from a learning, leadership, talent and organisational development background with 16 years' experience in a number of complex organisations and sectors (financial services, technology, energy and construction). I have a successful track record of implementing talent governance arrangements, designing assessment and development programmes, and delivering organisational change initiatives. I draw on this experience in my consultancy work with organisations.
I am an International Coach Federation trained coach completing 135 approved coach specific training hours (ACSTH) in 2017. I am a registered hypnotherapist with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, member of the British Institute of Hypnotherapy & NLP, and professional member of the Association for NLP. I am a master NLP practitioner with a clinical diploma in hypnotherapy and an Integral Eye Movement Therapy practitioner. A member The Academy of Systematic Kinesiology and student member of the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.
I discovered kinesiology back in 2015 through working with a Naturopath after my health wasn't where I wanted it to be. I was amazed with the results so set the target of training in kinesiology myself, which I completed earlier this year. Appreciating the vital role nutrition plays I am also training in naturopathic nutritional therapy.
I am a British Psychological Society accredited psychometric test user and MCIPD qualified previously holding chartered member status with the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development as well as being a Chartered Institute of Arbitrators' accredited mediator.
As a Happy Confident Kids practitioner which combines NLP and play for children I hold enhanced DBS, and safeguarding children level 1 certifications. I am also trained in first aid, fully insured and receive supervision. I have also completed two courses on infection prevention and control, and specifically covid-19 awareness.
