One on One Career Advice Brisbane and Gold Coast Australia
Most people gain considerable insight into what motivates them in a job after having career counseling.
"What I found most helpful was the discussion about my motivated abilities and how these had kept repeating themselves in previous jobs. I found this discussion/process of impartial career evaluation quite useful and would recommend Simon to anyone looking for careers help.
You will begin to understand, sometimes for the first time in your life, about the types of work that you are truly passionate about and most motivated to do.
The gifts and abilities that you were born with and naturally motivated to use will be addressed. And a plan implemented to encourage these natural motivations to be used in future jobs.
For many people this is critical information they learn about themselves in relation to the work they should be doing.
Perhaps for the first time in your life you will begin to understand the type of work that will bring you real meaning, fulfillment and satisfaction.
If you have experienced frustration in your career because of a "bad fit" in your job, some face-to-face sessions can be tremendously beneficial in bringing clarity to your career decision
It can be a wonderfully enlightening process for the many people who are not quite sure what job they would be best at or those who have been working in a job for quite some time and feel frustrated and disillusioned about the fulfillment they are receiving from their work.
I provide face-to-face careers advice in the Brisbane and Gold Coast areas in Australia, for local clients and one-on-one sessions via telephone or Skype for those living elsewhere.

What Does a Career Counsellor Do?
A career counsellor may work with the following types of people.
- Are thinking about changing careers.
- Have finished school or University but are unsure what work they would like to do.
- Have been made redundant and want to consider other options.
- Aren't fulfilled or satisfied in their work but are unsure why this is.
2. What Will I Get Out of This?
The primary goal of career counseling is to help you understand yourself better in relation to the world of work.
And this includes looking at what your primary gifts and abilities are, what things you are most motivated towards in life and how these fit in with job possibilities.
It's also about empowering you as a person to make right choices from the information you have.
However what a career counselor doesn't do [or at least shouldn't do] is to make decisions for you.
3. What Makes Me a Good Career Advice Counselor?
I guess the easy answer is that I love what I do and have a natural desire to see the maximum potential extracted out of other people.
I have worked within the career advice profession for over ten years, both self-employed and working for another organization.
I have a Diploma in Career Counseling and a Certificate in Vocational Assessment. And I have many satisfied clients.

4. How Many Sessions Will I Need?
This is a difficult question to answer.
I see some people for only one session and I have seen some clients for 10 sessions or more.
There are two parts to what I do with clients.
The first is to help them identify what they are good at, as discussed above.
The second is to work with them as they work through their job search.
If you need help with your job search, the number of sessions required will be considerably more than if you just need help with working out what you are good at.
Rule of thumb, allow 1 to 3 sessions to work on what you are good at.
I recommend clients book one session at a time for as long as they feel that the process is helpful for them.
To book a time please phone 0487 185557 or use the Contact tab
If using the contact form please indicate two appointments times that would be suitable for you. Please also include your daytime phone number on the form.
All face-to-face appointments are conducted at my central Brisbane address, Level 20, 300 Queen St or at my home office on the Gold Coast.
I also work with people through the full job search process including accessing the hidden job market, assistance in gaining interviews with potential employers, interview training and Resume-CV preparation.
