Career Counseling and Coaching – Therapists and Counselors in Houston, TX
Making career choices used to be a lot simpler than it is today. The “jobs for life” are no longer around either. That means people can expect to change their position within a company and/or their career at least twice during their lifetime. Just the job search itself can prove upsetting and harmful to a person’s mental state of mind. Career counseling can prove instrumental in times like these. Counselors can help people in the following areas:
- Avoidance of assuming roles and responsibilities
- Fear of failure
- Fear of success (it happens)
- Identity confusion
- Lack of motivation
- Low self-esteem
- Personal problems clouding the mind
- Self-doubt (lack of belief in one’s ability)
The Not Knowing
There are plenty of obstacles when looking at first time career options or making a career change later on in life. One of the challengers people face is ignorance. By not knowing what you’re doing or where you’re heading, this can ruin your chances of a successful outcome. Some of the common setbacks include:
- Exposure and belief in career academic myths
- Decision making difficulties
- Inaccurate or irrational beliefs
- Lack of information about available career services
- Lack of information about the world of employment and work
- Lack of self-awareness
- Pressure from others to take a certain career path
