About Laura Lawrence Wilcock
My Mission: Your Success
What goals would you pursue if you knew you could not fail? What core values guide and direct you? What current habits or fears might be holding you back? My mission, as your life coach, is to help you realize your full potential as you clarify your dreams and goals. I welcome the opportunity to work with people who are ready to move forward, challenge themselves and grow. Here are some examples:
Professionals seeking change, life balance and personal growth
Entrepreneurs launching a new business idea
Young Professionals seeking clarity and purpose
Empty nesters contemplating their next chapter
Parents seeking better relationships with their children
College students searching for direction and guidance
High School Students wanting to define their edge
Feeling the fear and doing it anyway
Individuals seeking to explore their faith and spirituality
Those who have lost a loved one or have experienced another type of grief
Throughout my career, I have held numerous leadership positions in the corporate and non-profit world. These experiences have enabled me to motivate and empower adults and young adults to move purposefully forward. How different would your life be if you explored and followed your own path to your North Star? What if you identified and pursued your vision? Where would you like to be one year from now? Vision leads to fruition for those who take the first step. If you want an enthusiastic partner and trusted confidant to walk with you toward a life of more meaning and purpose, I would be honored to work with you.
To your success,
Laura Lawrence Wilcock
Laura is an ICF Trained, Certified Professional Life Coach, Group Coach, Life Strategist, Entrepreneur, Visionary and Philanthropist who is passionate about inspiring people to find purpose, meaning, and joy in their personal and professional lives. Laura is also a Certified Grief Coach and Grief Recovery Specialist who has the desire and experience to help people find hope in the storm and move forward through grief and loss of any type.
After graduating from The University of Texas, Laura moved to NYC to pursue her career as a buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue, ultimately running a multimillion-dollar business for the nationwide company. Living in London, England, with her husband Tom for six years afforded Laura the opportunity to experience and better understand diverse backgrounds and cultures, thus enhancing her global perspective. Laura also became intimately involved with numerous volunteer organizations, but her greatest accomplishment was, and remains, becoming a mother and, together with Tom, raising their two children.
Throughout her life, Laura has been called upon to lead in various roles and serve on numerous committees. She served as Senior Warden of Saint Luke's Parish, Darien, CT, during the 150th Anniversary of the Church in 2005 and served as the Co-Chair of the Forward in Faith Campaign, 2008-2010. Laura was the driving force and implementor of the Godly Play curriculum, 1998 - present, and the visionary behind the highly successful contemporary evening service, Come As You Are, 2005-present.
Laura also recognizes specific needs within her community and loves to collaborate with people to bring a vision to life. She co-founded Soul Sisters in 2008, a weekly non-denominational bible study for women wanting to learn more about their faith. Laura created the website, Soul Sisters International, bringing the concept of the Soul Sisters community to all and sharing God's unconditional love, one soul at a time.
Having launched their children from college, Laura felt called to expand her coaching practice with additional formal training and certification studies from the world-renowned Christian Coach Institute and Gratitude to Grief Coaching, both certified by the International Coaching Federation. She is also certified by The Grief Recovery Method. Laura founded North Star International Life and Leadership Coaching in 2014 to offer her 35 years of life and leadership experience through life coaching.
Desiring to remain connected to her fashion career, Laura co-founded Harper Lawrence, a chic, modern, luxury handbag line in 2016. Laura is a firm believer in pursuing multiple passions, with purpose. Do what you love. Love what you do! In keeping with her value of giving back, Laura is honored to donate a portion of her proceeds to Be the Blessing and World Vision, empowering women and girls.
Desiring to learn more about nutrition and how it affects our long-term health, Laura studied and graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, in 2022. This certification now enables her to help women regain control of their lives with her popular course, "Fuel your Mind, Body, and Soul."
Laura's business savvy, combined with her faith, integrity, and engaging personality, mark the pillars of her life. She is a sounding board for many and inspires people to be the best version of themselves. She works with individuals and groups who want to transform themselves, define their edge, and claim their meaning and purpose. Laura also reserves several openings to offer complimentary coaching to grief clients, students, and refugees, who otherwise could not benefit from coaching. Laura coaches by Free Conference Call and Zoom, nationally and internationally, and by appointment in New York City and Darien, Connecticut.
