Starting Career counseling

What is Career counseling?

Career counseling, sometimes called career coaching, helps individuals make informed career decisions. This type of counseling is led by one of our Houston therapists who is trained to provide career development support.

How does Career counseling work?

Career counseling works to help you navigate your professional career and offer valuable information, such as required skill sets and/or education, regarding a particular position you may be considering. The following are common focuses of conversation that will help your career counselor best help you:

  • Job environment preferences
  • Growth potential
  • Career goals, short- and long-term
  • Personality type
  • Desired lifestyle
  • Potential earnings of a given career

Is Career counseling conducted in person or online?

Career counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Career counseling last?

Career counseling can last for weeks, months, or even years. It all depends on the goals that you're looking to accomplish and whether you continue to want/need that partner to reach your goals. Either way, our career counselors are here and ready to help you get on the right track.

Need more help deciding?

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)h

The Not Knowing: Deciding on a Career Path

There are plenty of obstacles when looking at first time career options or making a career change later on in life. One of the challenges people face is ignorance. Not knowing what you’re doing or where you’re headed 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

What to Expect from Career Counseling at Thriveworks in Houston

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
