Melina Ladouceur is a Cancer Coach at the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. As a Social Worker, she has worked primarily in a community health setting, especially with people coping with major life changes and transitions, and living with chronic illness. She has additional training in health coaching, MBSR, community and health system navigation, and has completed a one-year Nutrition certificate program with an in-depth look at cancer, heart disease, fatigue and weight management. As a Cancer Coach, she works with clients individually and focuses on client-driven objectives, on what matters most to the client at that point in time. She has a keen interest in the concept of resilience and believes that each person has unique strengths and inner wisdom based on their life experience. She actively engages her clients in the coaching process. Working together with her clients, she helps them create a personalized action plan that fits with their life, their values and preferences. Melina also facilitates some of our group coaching programs including the Caregivers Workshop, the Work & Cancer Survivorship course as well as CLIMB, a mental health promotion program for children and teens who have a parent living with cancer.
