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 recovering perfectionist, introvert, cat lover, keen gardener, and travel enthusiast... or rather was pre-2020!
I am great at building rapport and being able to dance in the moment, often challenging clients 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.
I come from a learning, leadership, and talent development background, with 18 years' experience in complex organisations in financial services, technology, energy, and construction. I have a successful track record of implementing talent governance, designing leadership assessment and development programmes, and delivering organisational change initiatives with a high ROI.
I am MCIPD qualified, a Chartered Institute of Arbitrators' accredited mediator and an International Coach Federation trained coach. I hold psychometric certifications in OPQ, Hogan, MBTI, NEO-PI-3, and Strengthscope.
I draw on this experience in my consultancy work with organisations.
I also provide clients an integrative approach to health and wellbeing by combining hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT), kinesiology, and naturopathic nutrition.
I am a registered hypnotherapist with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, and a master NLP practitioner holding memberships with the British Institute of Hypnotherapy & NLP, and the Association for NLP.
I am a member of the Academy of Systematic Kinesiology, and 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. Appreciating the vital role nutrition plays I am at the very final stages of a level 5 diploma in naturopathic nutritional therapy.
As a Happy Confident Kids practitioner which combines NLP and play for children, and a volunteer coach with Shaw Trust I hold enhanced DBS and safeguarding certifications.
I am 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.
