Career Counseling Intensives

Do you need something different?

Part of the challenge in creating a new career path is momentum. We often avoid the unknown by staying “safe” and resorting to tasks that we are already good at and “forgetting” to do others that can take us closer to a better, although unseen solution. Intensives are designed to override the habit of avoidance.

We spend more time at work than anywhere, yet this life area of life may not be very clearly defined; either due to bad luck, life changes, lack of goal setting, little guidance and/or opportunity, desire for approval from others, or a belief that fulfillment can’t be derived through one’s profession. People can be used to settling for a situation that isn’t quite right, but isn’t that bad.

On the flip side, it is thrilling for people to get the support he/she needs to land a profession that is “just right.” When life and self fit well, there is congruence. And, when people feel congruence in one area, it ripples into all life areas, e.g., relationships, money, time, sex.

Initial Consultation

Assessment, goal setting, budgeting, time organization, scheduling and in between session follow up are all addressed right off the bat. This format keeps clients from feeling overwhelmed. 5-7 follow up appointments are the norm, with time in between appointments to execute action steps.

Starting step by step in an organized manner with support is key in moving past overload, inertia, or burnout. If you, or others, feel there are more personal barriers blocking the career progression, schedule a consultation for feedback about which direction could be of the most benefit, personal psychotherapy or career consultation.
