Career Counselling

 My career counselling and coaching service is designed for people of all ages and all stages of your working life.

You may be

  • a student, school leaver, or new graduate entering the workforce for the first time

  • an experienced worker seeking career advancement or promotion

  • a mature aged person returning to the workforce after redundancy or interruption to employment due to injury, illness or parenting responsibilities

  • an employee feeling stuck or dissatisfied in your current job and seeking a new career direction


Why flounder around trying to figure out what to do on your own, when you can get professional, practical career advice, support and coaching to move into the job you want?

I can assist with :

  • Career Planning and Development

  • Resume/CV preparation

  • Job applications and cover letters

  • Jobsearch assistance

  • Interview Skills

  • Career coaching for advancement

  • Work/life Balance

  • Managing occupational stress

  • Conflict Management

  • Dealing with redundancy

  • Retirement Planning


My focus will be on you and your specific needs.

A few examples of the type of services I can provide you with include:

  • Help with identifying your key skills and strengths

  • How to make the most of your paid and unpaid work and life experience

  • Identifying your career direction by exploring your personality type, your values and  the right work environment for you

  • Providing you with information about study options, the labour market and future trends

  • Assisting you to overcome real or perceived barriers to job success

  • Building confidence and maintaining motivation

  • Help with Resume/CV preparation, job applications and developing job search skills

  • Support with job search and practising interview skills

  • Bouncing back after redundancy

  • Planning for retirement and finding satisfying alternatives to paid work

Note : Sometimes vocational testing may be advisable to assist you to identify your aptitudes and your areas of strength.  I am trained in administering the Morrisby Assessment and the Strong Vocational Inventory so if you are interested in accessing these tools, we can incorporate one of these into your career sessions.

Some clients may require only a few sessions to focus on one or two aspects of their career journey, whilst others may wish me to work with them throughout the whole process from identifying the career direction right up to securing their chosen position.   It is entirely up to you how much assistance you require.  It is also possible to have a few sessions and then go off to test out some of your options and return when you are ready to proceed with the next stage of your career journey.
