LAUREN CORTAZZO

FOUNDER • HOLISTIC COUNSELLOR • EMPOWERMENT & MINDFULNESS COACH

Lauren is a warm, intuitive, empathetic and passionate Counsellor and Coach with an extensive background, qualifications and training in Therapeutic Behaviour Change and Social Work. 

 

Prior to creating Vivid Growth & Wellness in 2019, Lauren worked for the Department of Justice & Community Safety which saw her supporting many clients facing issues around mental health, substance abuse, complex trauma and criminal offending. During a rewarding yet challenging career working with clients both in the community and in prison, Lauren found herself feeling burnt out, disconnected, unaligned and uninspired. As an extremely intuitive and spiritual being, 

Lauren began to lean into the discomfort, forcing her to question her current path and kickstart her healing journey back home to self. 

 

Lauren birthed Vivid Growth & Wellness when she began to follow her inner nudges to explore mental health, wellness and healing through a holistic lens. This eventually led Lauren to take a leap of faith, seeing her leave her 9-5 career in the Criminal Justice field to pursue her true passion- Holistic Coaching & Counselling, Wellbeing and Spirituality. Lauren was ready to start living her truth while helping other women do the same and feel fully supported and empowered in the process.

 

Lauren is a firm believer in discomfort and disconnection being an invitation for change. Lauren is dedicated to helping women navigate shifts, changes and discomfort, helping them turn doubt, pain and shame into PURE MAGIC! Remember, you are not alone in this.
