Olga Lacroix is a registered Social Worker, yoga teacher and meditation coach who uses a holistic mindfulness-based approach to help individuals cope with emotional and physical problems that may be associated with stress, grief, infertility, anxiety or depression.

Olga’s gentle and assertive interventions guide individuals through a process of discovering patterns and mental blocks that are currently preventing them from healing and growth. By discovering the real root cause of the emotional problems, Olga guides individuals to discover within themselves their power to heal, transform and co-create.

 
This process differs from other traditional approaches as it is a “hands-on” intervention that in a short amount of time creates powerful transformations and, it leaves individuals with tools that have lasting effects. 
  
There is a strong connection between our perceptions of how we view the world around us, and our experience of the world around us. When facing health (mental or physical) difficulties, we tend to wonder what is wrong with us? And maybe even engage in self-blaming and self-rejection. Those perceptions are far from friendly and they end up leading us to feel and behave in unfriendly ways towards our bodies and our minds. Having experienced this first hand, I have become very passionate about educating individuals on the mind-body connection to help them free themselves from perceptions that are not useful and that can in fact be harmful.
 
Olga's approach to counselling is holistic in that it involves mind, body and soul techniques such as; mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, Reiki healing, guided meditations and yoga.
 
Areas of Focus:
 Stress Reduction
Stress related conditions
Anxiety reduction
Depression

Self-esteem
Emotional aspects of infertility
 
Why I Love What I Do
 Having experienced several stressful life and health circumstances, I have learned to rely on my body’s natural healing abilities and on holistic resources and supports to cope with the inevitable obstacles that life has to offer. I became interested in Social Work shortly after arriving to Canada as a refugee and being inspired by the incredible opportunities to help others that this beautiful country has to offer.
My passion for mental health, yoga, reiki  and meditation came during my practice of social work, as I was seeking to include a more holistic approach with my counselling clients. I really enjoy educating and providing individuals with tools that make them confident in their own abilities to cope with stress and other difficulties. I encourage individuals to trust their own wisdom and to welcome everything that shows up in their lives as lessons that will ultimately make them better humans.
