My name is Laura Rinnankoski and I'm a Certified International Life & Relationship Coach, a Certified NLP Practitioner & Motivational Speaker. I give one to one sessions in person and over Skype as well as group workshops & courses in English, Spanish, Finnish & Italian. The reason that I speak all these languages is because I was born in Finland, grew up in Venezuela, studied in Boston, then lived in Miami and now I live in Dublin, Ireland... so I consider myself a citizen of the world! My dream and vision is to use my international background and 5 languages (I'm fluent in English, Spanish & Finnish, have very strong Italian and conversational French) to help people all over the world!
I was born on a beautiful sunny winter morning in March in Helsinki, Finland and five months later my family moved to tropical Caracas, Venezuela where I grew up. Even though I was born in a Nordic country, I ended up growing up in the tropical sunshine of Venezuela and I am the only Finnish person that I know that saw snow for the first time in the Venezuelan Andes and I experienced my first real winter in Boston when I was 18... which is not the case for most Finnish people! Ever since I was born, I always knew that my mission was to help people, and coaching allows me to do this.
Life Coaching combines three things that have always been very important to me... helping people, communication and spirituality. I love communicating with people and speak five languages... English, Spanish & Finnish fluently, very strong Italian and conversational French. I'm very spiritual and believe that we are all connected and that we are spiritual beings having a human experience... quoting the famous Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
My international background and experiences have molded me into the person that I am today. I was born in Finland, grew up in Venezuela, studied university in Boston, then I lived in Miami and now I live in Dublin... so I joke and I say that I'm Finnish, Venezuelan, American, Irish.... but I really consider myself a citizen of the world! I have the strong work ethic of a Finnish person, I like to dance salsa & merengue like a Venezuelan and the good luck of the Irish has stuck to me because I am a very lucky person!
I love helping people find their own answers and become more empowered with all the new awareness that they gain in our sessions together. It is such a joy to witness a client gaining new understanding and awareness of themselves... taking full responsibility of their lives and realizing that they are the only ones that can change their lives for the better.
