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