Growing up in a bilingual family in multi-cultural Belgium, Laurence learned from a young age how to bring people from different backgrounds together and let them connect as human beings. Soon after she completed her Master’s degree in Business, Laurence chose to follow a path of adventure and service to others. For 5 years, her work with the Constellation, an international non-profit organisation, allowed her to facilitate deep community conversations in remote villages in DR-Congo to slums in the Philippines to violent neighborhoods in Papua New Guinea.
In her retreat and workshops, Laurence now combines the Eastern practice of Buddhist psychology with the Western practice of Compassionate Communication to coach both individuals and groups towards more fulfilled and joyful lives.
She is been studying and applying Non-Violent Communication for many years. This communication model gives us practical tools to resolve conflicts and deepen our understanding and connection of ourselves and others. Combined with mindfulness and meditation, Compassionate Communication is of the most effective tools to live in harmony with ourselves, our family and community.
Laurence also facilitates an online personal development course developed by TeamUp and the Asian Leadership Institute. This 10 week course allows individuals (in groups of 3) to develop more awareness in terms of their personality, vibrational communication and intuition and support each other to develop a weekly mindfulness practice.
