Career Counselling and Coaching
We can help you take control of your career direction.
Through our career counselling and coaching services, you’ll work one-on-one with a Registered Psychologist who specializes in career development and can help you to make strategic and informed career decisions.
Career counselling is a proven process that helps you to successfully plan and change careers.
We work one-on-one with clients ages 15 – 65+ across Alberta (in person and at a distance) to support career planning and decision making. Through career counselling you’ll gain valuable insights about what you need in order to be fulfilled in a career, increase your awareness of career options and strategically narrow your options to find what’s best for you.
Our career counselling process is personalized to your needs, and may involve:
- Assessing your skills, strengths, interests, personality, and values
- Increasing your awareness of alternative career options
- Gaining confidence in choosing or changing careers
Common career counselling concerns include:
- Knowing you want to make a career change but are uncertain about how to move forward
- Questioning your career choice and wondering if there could be better options for you
- Re-entering the workforce after a leave, and feeling unsure about where to start
- Being uncertain about your career plans after high school (15+)
- Planning for your retirement or semi-retirement transition
- Military to civilian career transitions (Career Transformation: Translating the Warrior→)
This unique program has been developed for military personnel planning to enter the civilian workforce.
