  • Challenges (stress/anxiety) around family pressure or parental frustration concerning young people’s career planning

Our counsellors employ a broad range of therapeutic approaches for dealing with these issues, including:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Solution-Focused Therapy

We match clients with counsellors who have the appropriate training, skills, and experience in these areas.

What Can Career Counselling Do?

Career counselling with a Registered Psychologist or Career Coach is an excellent way to make career decisions and find a fulfilling career direction. The process of career counselling includes personality, interest and values assessments, and coaching sessions to ensure you find the right career path for you. All career counsellors at Calgary Career Counselling are Master’s- and Ph.D.-level Psychologists and Career Coaches with extensive experience helping people reach their full potential. We’re a private organization offering fee-based services, but many extended health plans cover Registered Psychologists.
