Career Counselling

A 2 hour one-on-one session with one of our career experts to define your career priorities, discuss psychological hurdles and think through practical next steps to transform your working life. Please note these sessions can only take place in-person, in London.

Finding a job that matches our talents and interests is one of the central tasks of any life, but it can be extremely hard to find the space, energy and focus to zero in on our true aspirations.

Therefore, there may be literally nothing more valuable to invest in than some sessions of Career Counselling. In the hands of a good counsellor, our personalities are properly scanned and analysed, blocks are investigated and a way forward is sketched.

This session is suitable for people at any stage of their career, and each session is tailored to individual’s specific needs.
