• Therapy with Alex
    Therapy with Alex Taking the first steps in acknowledging that you need support doesn’t make you weak, in fact it is quite the opposite. Considering the demanding world we live in today I believe that therapy is becoming a necessity.
  • Fear of the Unknown
    Fear of the Unknown Through undertaking therapy we can stretch our capacity to tolerate the moment to moment uncertainties of life. Over time you may come to embrace the ebbs and flows of life, and gain an acceptance of ‘what is’.
  • Know thyself
    Know thyself Socrates (C. 469 BC-399 BC) one of the world’s most celebrated philosophers knew the priceless value of self knowledge. In our generation self knowledge gained in therapy is yet again becoming the King of currency.

Career counselling is sought when an individual needs confidential guidance and help about areas of study and possible career movements or changes. If an individual experiences a personal issue about their future and wants to discuss or discover opportunities about their career plans, they can do so with a counsellor. Counsellors are experienced, qualified professionals who understand the difficulties of career choices and can offer appropriate advice to each individual.

What does career counselling involve?

Career counselling involves meeting with an appropriate counsellor who will ask a variety of questions about your life plans and career intentions. They will also discuss factors that are likely to influence your decisions or that could affect your goals. Answers to the questions will hopefully assist you in realising your career objectives. The sessions also involve setting personal goals and learning skills to allow positive career choices to be made.

A counsellor will ensure you are setting realistic targets for yourself and help you choose a career to suit your expectations and not others. If you experience pressure to enter a career that doesn't appeal to you, you will probably be less motivated in the job role. They will also make sure you have as much information possible about the path you are considering and ensure it suits your personality.

How career counselling can help

  • Personal plans of action can be generated.
  • Interests, skills and abilities can be recognised.
  • Educated decisions about future direction can be made.
  • Job search planning.
  • A portfolio of abilities can be created.
  • Graduate employment and availability can be explored.
  • University requirements can be investigated.

Available help

Career counselling can offer sessions on an individual basis, where a personal analysis of your choices are discussed, or as a group where you can support each other and share interests and abilities. Counselling is available at most colleges and Universities around the UK or there are a number of private professionals if you would prefer to deal with your issues away from your college or University.
