CAREER COUNSELLING & COACHING

HIGHLY EXPERIENCED COACH + REGISTERED PSYCHOLOGIST

IS IT TIME FOR A CAREER CHANGE?

Many people, at some point in their working lives, have found themselves questioning their career choices or have been forced to review their chosen careers due to redundancy or unexpected unemployment.

Since the end of the pandemic, there has been a massive spike in workers experiencing what the World Health Organisation (WHO) refer to as Burnout.

Burnout has become a term we use casually. However, WHO refers to Burnout as a syndrome resulting from chronic workplace stress. It results in fatigue that won’t go away after a holiday or time off, negativity and cynicism towards their work and/or workplace, and an increase in ineffectiveness and low self-confidence. 

Burnout is not a diagnosable illness, however if left unaddressed can lead to hypertension, sleep disturbrances, relationship issues, and for some mental health issues. Please see my recent TV interview here regarding Burnout.

However, many people experiencing difficulty with their career may not be experiencing Burnout and instead need professional support to better navigate their workplace, job applications and career goals.

Career Counselling and Coaching offer a pathway for individuals to explore what might be impacting their career aspirations and how to achieve short- and long-term career goals. 

Having a professional coach and registered Psychologist can make an immense difference in the level of support you are able to access. For many, this leads to a faster return to work or a renewed enthusiasm towards their work and career goals. This outcome often has a hugely positive impact on overall well-being. 

WHAT IS CAREER COUNSELLING AND CAREER COACHING?

Career Counselling

Traditional counselling provides the opportunity to look at our 5 key domains in life: family, work, health, community and spirituality.

Career Counselling focuses on our work domain. This means that the focus of sessions is on exploring what challenges, experiences, concerns or worries you have regarding your work.

This can include but is not limited to:

  • Problems in your current work environment

  • Feeling burnout, and not sure what to do next

  • Have recently lost your job and need support on what to do next

  • Support with managing feelings of self-doubt and low confidence in relation to your work and career goals.

  • Feeling it’s time for a big change, and you need a safe environment to explore options.

Career Counselling may be something you can claim under your private health care fund. You will be provided a receipt with my provider number. Please contact your private health fund for the most appropriate advice. Medicare rebates are not available for this service.

 

Career Coaching

Career Coaching focuses on practical strategies that help an individual identify short- and long-term career goals and how to achieve them.

This can include:

  • Professional advice on how to position themselves for a new career or role

  • Time for a complete change, and need help identifying transferrable skills and who/what may value these

  • Setting short- and long-term career and professional development plan

  • Support through a job application process from apply to final offer

  • How to access the hidden job market

  • How to use LinkedIn strategically, and present a professional profile on job applications.

  • Keep you accountable to your short- and long-term professional goals

Career Coaching may be something you can claim as professional development if you are employed while receiving the coaching. Please speak to your accountant to get the best advice on this option.
