Career Counselling

Career Counselling is a pioneering approach, ideal for the 21st century career challenges.  It is not just a conversation or a test, but instead an interactive process which incorporates the two type of analysis crucial for career fulfilment: The Self (profession and personal) and The Systems we are in (organisational, industry, national, global, future). Clients will learn how to use the IntegralCareer methodology, interactively and sole (incorporating disciplines ranging from psychotherapy, business, and future of work trends, etc). Additionally, clients can gain some clarity and outputs about key, problem solving data (i.e. values, traits, interests and patterns, skills and career and life formulas to thrive), as well as future of work trend resources.  After the session, a template is provided to help clients continue the analysis; follow up sessions are welcome. 

Session times are 2 hours for in-person, and two 1-hour slots for online sessions. Career Counselling is suitable for people at any stage of their career, and each session is tailored to individual’s specific needs.

Please note that due to health and safety concerns, all new therapy bookings will be for online sessions only, for the foreseeable future. Due to the popularity of this service, there are NO remaining sessions available until June 2020.
