Understanding the Skin

A look at skin structure


Expand your knowledge of the skin and be a authentic, heart-centered wellness therapist or learn about your skin to start on your self-care journey.

The skin is essential for life. It protects our vital organs and houses our soul. It also protects us for harmful rays and micro-organism and excess pain. It regulates our temperature to keep us comfortable. It is our direct contact with the environment around us and a reflection of what is going on, on the inside.

Are YOU passionate about learning and open to discovering the connections that goes beyond the skin?

Are YOU ready to be THE GO TO THERAPIST that gives an extraordinary holistic experience?

Are YOU ready to make a difference to the wellbeing of others?

I believe that the power of touch can make a profound difference to the welfare of others.

Being a tactile therapist is very rewarding and the power of touch a special gift worth sharing.

I would like to invite you on this journey with me as I share my 39 year of experience as a beauty therapist, naturopath, ayurvedic practitioner, teacher and creator of natural skincare.

I am passionate about supporting and guiding others to find their path in the wellness industry and sharing insights to inspire individuals to thrive.

This course is ideal for you, if you are interested in self-care or if you work in the health and beauty industry. This is a perfect foundation to being a authentic holistic therapist or if you simply just want to understand the skin you live in.

Catherine Laurent ND

I started my journey into mind, body, soul and skin back in 1980. My study of the skin and beauty therapy started in Paris where I learned the French way to beauty. I operated several successful beauty salons in Melbourne, where I worked with all kinds of skin conditions.

I later completed a degree in Health Science Naturopathy to treat my clients from the inside as well as out.

The more I learned about the human body the more I wanted to explore the holistic aspect of wellbeing. I studied a lot of modalities before I discovered the wisdom of Ayurveda. Mind, body and spiritual medicine.

In these courses, I hope to bring my knowledge and experience to those heart-centred therapist and individuals who wish to expand on their offerings and make a difference to a persons holistic wellbeing.

I invite you to join me on this explorative journey to play our part in making a difference to the wellbeing of others.

"I have worked with Catherine since she started in the early 80's. Catherine is my mentor, she is very professional, nurturing and knowledgeable. I have had my own beauty salon for many years now and have enrolled in this course to understand the skin as a refresher. I can never get enough of the insights and wisdom that Catherine has to offer. Catherine has given me the confidence to work on a deeper level with my clients and provide enriching and rewarding services which my customers love"

I highly recommend doing this course "

- Georgina Papageorgeou, Founder, Precious Beauty Melbourne

" I have known Catherine for quite a number of years, first meeting her at beauty school where she was my teacher and lit the fire inside me to learn about the human body and the skin. She is an absolute wealth of knowledge and planted seeds within me that made me want to explore health further. She was the one who made an impression on me as a teenager to really look after myself and look at what Iā€™m putting into my body and on my skin. When you enrol in her course, I have no doubt you will come away with a wealth of information that you can apply practically and will broaden your knowledge which you can then share with clients and loved ones. I am forever grateful for the things she has taught me and I would suggest you do not delay in starting this course!!!! "

- Laura Melick, Massage Therapist, Student Nurse
