You can continue your training toward the Holistic Narrative Career Professional (HNCP) designation. HNCP is a professional designation introduced by OneLifeTools. The HNCP designation adds to your professional credibility and your ability to serve and attract clients to your work in organizations, educational institutions, associations, or practice.


Great resources, structure for program, well laid out, great facilitator, pacing, presentation & knowledge. I like how it is a continuing evolving model. Thanks! I came into the training with some ambivalence as I have been bored with career counseling. I leave with a sense of purpose and excitement, feeling/believing I can offer my clients something of value. With practice, I think I will be a much better career counsellor and coach.
~ Robyn Rushford, Kwantlen University

The major motivating factors for embracing the CareerCycles narrative method of practice at our Centre had to do with both consistency and quality assurance. As a manager, I feel more confident knowing there’s a consistent approach and a common language used when supporting students with their career exploration. In addition, the framework is flexible enough to allow professional staff to draw on their personal styles and experiences, while adding to their professional skill set.
~Tony Botelho, Manager, Career Services & Volunteer Services, Simon Fraser University


Since I began working with your model, my coaching practice increased a lot. So, thank you so much for your wonderful work. You are an inspiration.

Excellent and knowledgeable facilitator. The method will be very applicable to work with clients. I am excited to apply it!
~ Trina Greer, Government of New Brunswick


The CareerCycles [OneLifeTools] Framework is EXACTLY the easy-to-follow (and implement!) process I was searching for! I now have a step-by-step approach to effectively guide clients in making and taking their own meaningful actions toward their desired goals (even when they have no idea what they are!). The best thing too is being confident I am efficiently using both of our time! This training is the mastermind of all of the best the career development field has to offer in theory, research, experience and, maybe even more importantly, practical common sense. Thank you Mark Franklin for revolutionizing the way I will now work with —no wait— "empower" my clients.
