Career Counseling and Coaching – Therapists and Counselors in Durham

Everyone wants to work but not so many like the task of looking for employment. Thinking about a new career can be confusing for some, not least because there are so many choices of occupations these days. The jobs market is forever evolving, too, which doesn’t help. Not knowing what path to consider or whether a particular vocation is apt can all contribute to the buildup of stress and uncertainty. There is often just so much to think about, and that’s the problem. It is times like these where career counseling can be a great help at guiding people in the right direction.

Challenging Times

What kind of challenges a person faces when it comes to career choices and occupational options depends on many factors. Some of the difficulties a lot of people face include:

  • Identifying specific talents (physical, educational, occupational)
  • What is it that they love to do?
  • What careers actually match their interests?

Although the things above might seem obvious, it can be easy to overlook such things when trying to get your act together. One of the reasons why so many fail at the interview stage is because they were ill-prepared and did not anticipate certain questions. Failing to prepare is just preparing to fail. Getting better organized is something that vocational counseling can help with.

Career Counseling in a Nutshell

A good career counseling service offers in depth vocational assessment. The counselor can help to generate interesting ideas and suggest occupations that you may have overlooked. They are able to show you the types of career that suit your personality and interests. Often, these are things that the individual would not have otherwise picked up on by themselves.

Durham career counseling helps people who are uncertain of what options might be a good fit for them. We can also advise in the following key areas:

  • Help with the career exploration process
  • Career related assessments
  • Occupational or educational training options
  • Show how and where to find relevant occupational information
  • Discuss your ideas in a confidential setting

Call us today and schedule an appointment to see if we can offer a solution to your occupational and/or educational concerns.
