Trained by the only trauma-informed course in the world accredited by the International Coaching Federation, Laura K. Connell helps people uncover the subconscious reasons they sabotage their own success. Most often, these reasons relate to unmet needs in childhood. After growing up in a household with emotional abuse and neglect, she has spent the last 12 years studying and researching dysfunctional families and their impact on our adult lives. She is host and keynote speaker of the Reparenting Yourself Retreat, a multi-speaker event that helps attendees overcome the impact of unmet childhood needs to live their happiest and most fulfilled lives. Laura has a degree from the University of Toronto and blogs weekly at her personal growth and development website laurakconnell.com, about healing self-sabotage and attachment issues. Her guest articles have appeared in Chicken Soup for the Soul, The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Pick the Brain, Dumb Little Man, Thought Catalog, and Highly Sensitive Refuge, to name a few. She holds a post-graduate certificate in nonfiction from the Humber School for Writers which awarded her the Bram and Bluma Appel scholarship. Her online course, the Self-Parenting Solution, helps students understand the deep-seated reasons why they hold themselves back so they can live lives of joy and self-fulfillment.
