Planning a successful career usually has its beginnings in a comprehensive career assessment. Exploring your life- the past, the present together with future aspirations can assist you to identify what’s been important to you, how you’ve made decisions and choices as well as an understanding of the nature of confusion and restrain you may have experienced.
Through our work together we begin to determine patterns of personal resources, strengths and interests, and finally relate these to meaningful career paths for work and study.
Your career counsellor, Helen Campbell Harder structures your career assessment to help you to reflect on your stories of work and life through counselling, assessment, reporting, questioning, planning and research. In this way you begin to make meaning of influences, ideas, patterns, themes and change.
These activities lead to alternative perspectives and possibilities and strengthen confidence to make new decisions for your life and your career.
