Career Counselling

 
 

I offer an objective and dynamic career counselling service that is unique to every woman and her situation. Allowing her to feel heard and understood in a safe environment free from shame and judgement.

I will work alongside you to help you understand yourself more fully, meaning that we will take into consideration all of your strengths and weaknesses, your passions, your personality traits, your skills and abilities, your values and beliefs so that you can get in touch with your authentic self. With greater self-awareness and trust in yourself, I hope that you will be able to make well-informed decisions, leading to a more satisfying and meaningful career life.

I apply an integrated approach to career counselling, meaning that I combine different but complementary counselling methods that have been taken from different models of therapy. These are Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. Using an integrative approach allows me to be flexible in providing a service that suits you and your situation.

The end goal is to help you not only choose a career and gain employment but also to help you create meaning in your career life, where you have a sense of pride and purpose that aligns with your values and beliefs. A career that provides options and flexibility so that they can create a successful life, and make meaningful contributions to your community.

When it comes to your career, don’t bother asking yourself what type of job you want, ask yourself what kind of life do you want?!

I offer face-to-face and online individual career counselling sessions and workshops, allowing women to openly talk about their career challenges.

1Career Guidance

This is where I work with you to identify the type of work or field that is most suitable to you and your unique set of circumstances. The first question I usually get is “I want to know what career I’m most suited to?” And this comes down to many factors, all of which we'll work through together.

You will discover the careers best suited to your interests, values, strengths, weaknesses, and personality.

We will explore the many career options available and then you will research and identify the most suitable career option. You will learn about all the different training, course, or university options.

2Career Planning

This is where we work together to identify clear and realistic career goals, and then develop a detailed action plan on how to achieve them so that you are on your way to a fulfilling career.

To stay employed and advance in your chosen career it is essential to be dedicated, committed, and to work hard, developing long-term goals will help you immensely.

3Job Assistance

A more thoughtful and planned approach to job seeking is to actually plan to and establish a career. Instead of applying for any job, the person who is career orientated will focus their attention on a particular field of work such as sales, administration, animal care, nursing or horticulture.

When you can focus on a certain area it will help to strengthen your skills and knowledge in that particular area, allowing you to develop a sound understanding of what’s required and what’s happening in that field of employment.

Even if you’re just looking to accept any job so that you can pay your bills, having a career plan will increase your awareness of specific opportunities that can support your long term goals.

The more sure you are of what you want to do, the more motivation and enthusiasm you will bring to your job seeking in your particular field.

Together we can…

  • Create ways to build a winning/growth mindset - This can really help job seekers to avoid feeling frustrated and disappointed if they’ve experienced many rejections
