DSC00806 - CopyRenate Donnovan Renate has over 20 years’ experience as a facilitator, educator and transformational coach, at the corporate, personal interest and post-secondary levels. She has worked with organizations, individuals and teams in Canada and the United States. She has 4 coaching designations and is a Master NLP Practitioner. Renate has a Master’s Degree in Leadership and is one of the few counseling hypnotists who specializes in hypnosis for leadership development. She combines her passion for leadership development with her passion for mental health recovery to support both organizations and individuals in increasing their overall mental-emotional health, and to reduce workplace stress. Renate also coaches leaders and managers in becoming more effective at managing staff with mental health challenges, and navigating the duty to accommodate.

An accomplished and passionate public speaker, Renate regularly speaks for companies and organizations across Canada. In the past two years, she has been focused on supporting individuals recovering from past traumas, and she is especially passionate about working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and stress.

In her spare time, Renate can be found hypno-doodling (a form of meditative doodling that helps send positive messages to your subconscious mind through play!) or reading books on neuroscience. She is currently working to complete her PhD in Public Health and Health Systems at the University of Waterloo. Her focus is wellbeing, resilience and mental health.

Warning!! Renate is passionately enthusiastic about hypnotherapy and coaching—so if you ask her, she will talk to you about them (sometimes for hours)!
