Career Coach | Counsellor
Chris has focused her education and training to provide a unique, holistic approach to career coaching. As a qualified and Accredited Career Coach with a Master of Counselling, Chris can guide you through a difficult transition, a tough decision or a challenging time within your workplace or with your studies She has extensive experience working with students from year 12 and adults up to mature-age. Many of her clients are return-to-work parents, mid-life career changers and people experiencing loss or uncertainty, and high anxiety as a result of COVID19.
Chris’s counselling background can help you to work through and overcome self-doubt or a lack of confidence. She will ensure you are in the best state-of-mind to make a wise decision and follow through with it successfully and confidently.
Chris has described her own purpose; to help people to unlock their potential, see their way through difficult times, recognise the range of opportunities open to them, and to increase their hope and confidence to take the necessary steps to make positive changes in their lives.
We can all find ourselves lacking motivation or losing sight of our bigger-picture goals because we are spending too much time “treading water” on the small, daily and often unimportant tasks. Sometimes we start out with grand intentions to become an architect, doctor, lawyer, engineer, IT architect….a leader, and the list goes on. Then we find that the placement opportunities in our chosen field are almost non-existent and self-doubt or worry kicks in. Her background and training as a Counsellor enable her to understand the individual needs of every client she works with. She can help her clients to deal with stress, negativity thinking or self-doubt effectively so that they can get back on track, or on with their jobs and/or their studies and remaining resilient when faced with any new challenges.
