Meet your Counsellor


Nicole Lafrance


My Professional Experience:


I am a graduate from the University of Ottawa with a Master’s in Education with a specialization in Counselling. My first degree was in Sociology and Political Science which served as an important catalyst in giving me the desire to work closely with individuals seeking to live a healthy balanced lifestyle.


I love life and I believe it is a life long journey of learning, un-learning, and more learning.  While I am very compassionate, caring and sensitive to life issues and problems, I am a solution-focused person who believes in drawing from your strengths to help you move forward to attain a more fun and fulfilled life. I believe everyone has strengths and hidden treasures that can be brought to the light with the aim to design a better tomorrow.  


                                           ~  Change your perspective - Love your life - Own your future  ~



With over 20 years of experience, I offer confidential Professional Counselling or Life Skills Coaching. My professional career has given me opportunities to serve and gain valuable experience in varied workplaces including but not exhaustively Career Counselling, Adult Education, Crisis Intervention Worker, Youth Worker, Relationship Counselling, Spiritual Counselling, and Pastoral Care.
