About Laurie Paterson, Professional and Personal Certified Coach
Hi I’m Laurie – an enthusiastic intellect that is curious about the human body and our mind, and all of its complexities. This has led me to study and practice healing modalities such as reiki, reflexology, tapping (EFT), meditation, yoga, coaching, and engaging in primarily a plant-based food diet (and, I love to cook!). I’m a Certified Professional and Personal Coach and Retirement Options Certified Coach who holds a certificate in MIS from Concordia University. I completed a mini MBA with the McGill Executive Institute, and I am currently licensed with the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) in the province of Québec. For 25+ years I’ve been working at a large financial institution, specializing primarily in retirement products and services. I’m a people leader, supporting and leading my teams through constant change and continuous improvement. I actively find ways of blending and harmonizing these two worlds – the corporate, continuous improvement business leader alongside mindfulness and compassion – learning to lead as a tender-hearted warrior who has a strong back and an open heart. In our turbulent world of constant change, business transformation and keeping up with the digital evolution, this is no easy feat. I support my clients through their personal transformation, in making new habits and getting rid of those that no longer serve them, by integrating coaching and change management techniques through mindfulness.
