Career Coaching

For many people, their career is a huge component of their life and identity, so understanding what we want and how to achieve it is important. 

What is career coaching

Career coaching is in many ways similar to life coaching, in that it focuses more on goal-setting and practical strategies than traditional counselling. A career counsellor will work with you to establish what it is you want from your working life, and how you can work towards it. 

They can also help you tackle other typical career issues, like figuring out a more manageable work-life balance, improving focus and drive, or resolving conflicts and tensions in the workplace. 

In order to solve these surface-level issues, a professional career counsellor may delve deeper into the underlying psychological factors that cause them, so career counselling can ultimately be a profound way to learn more about yourself.

Problems that a career coach can help you solve

Sometimes, it can be hard to know what we want from our career and, if we do know it, how to get there– all while retaining a healthy work-life balance. 

Career coaching can cover a whole range of issues, or simply be a great way to work towards something if you’re feeling stagnant or stuck in a rut:

  • Identifying what you want from your career 

  • Lack of motivation or drive 

  • Switching career

  • High-stress or pressurising environments

  • Streamlining your work so you can maintain a healthier balance between work and downtime

  • Managing workplace tensions and conflicts 

  • Fear of public speaking or other anxieties associated with workplace activities.
