Dr. Laura Crawford, NDHello,
Im Laura Crawford, Naturopathic Doctor and Wellness Coach. For the past four years I have been working almost exclusively with hormones and their impact on health. Specifically, I work with individuals who want to improve their energy levels, focus & concentration, get back to their ideal weight and feel like themselves again.
I have seen a staggering trend where men and women alike are finding themselves on the spectrum of burnout. Over time this can lead to many physical concerns and impact emotional wellbeing. I have supplemented my naturopathic education with specific courses so that I can help my patients improve their health on all levels - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Some of these courses and certifications include:
· Co-Active Coaching (Coaches Training Institute)
· Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Harvard University)
· Menopause Practice (North American Menopause Society)
· Neurolinguistic Therapy (American Board of Hypnotherapy & ABNLP)
· Timeline Therapy (American Board of Hypnotherapy & ABNLP)
· NLP Coach (American Board of Hypnotherapy & ABNLP)
It was finding my own way through burnout that inspired me to help others. In University I played varsity soccer and tore ligaments in my knee that required surgery. The first surgery was, unbeknownst to me, experimental. After a rigorous rehabilitation process and clearance to play again I immediately re-tore the ligament and needed a second surgery. The extreme training, physical stress of the surgeries, Type A personality, and other factors all created a perfect storm and I was suddenly changed. I found myself getting anxious or depressed and unable to cope with scenarios that would normally be very easy for me to deal with. The once strong person was suddenly unsure, confused, foggy and drained. My weight went down and then up and became difficult to control and my hormonal balance was clearly affected. Everything I knew about health, exercise, nutrition and my usual coping strategies were no longer working for me and I had to start at the foundation again.
Determined to take my wellbeing back into my own hands I enrolled at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. I was mentored by bio-identical hormone experts, coaches, spiritual healers anyone who could help me better see patterns in the body as well as patterns in our lives. Over time I have developed a Burnout Spectrum Program to help people regain their health and orient themselves to a stronger place of being.
Currently I am in a program to become a Certified Co-Active Coach to help people better adapt to stress and live a more fulfilling life.
