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 Peachtree City 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?

Gayle was laid off from her lucrative career in engineering during a slump in the oil and gas industry. She enjoyed her work, but the constant ups and downs of the economy were tough to handle, particularly with a family to support. During her last period of unemployment, she decided to take control of her situation and seek a new career. Gayle considered her options and realized she didn’t have time to figure it out on her own—she needed professional support to make the best decision in a reasonable amount of time. Luckily, a friend suggested career coaching. In just a few weeks, she’d nailed down her strengths, begun to work on her weaknesses, and made a list of possible career options to pursue that would allow her to enjoy her work while maintaining more stability for herself and her family.

If you have suddenly found yourself without a job, it may feel incredibly overwhelming to think about starting a career search. Maybe losing your job was a relief because you have been wanting to make a change for a while. This may be just the push you need to find a more fulfilling job in which you can utilize your strengths and skills. Thriveworks Peachtree City career counselors are ready to help you sift through all the options. We would begin by assessing your skills, interests, and abilities. Next, we would help you become informed about the many different choices in the world of work. It can be quite a daunting process to determine not only what you would love to do, but what would realistically work for your life and financial goals. Luckily, you don’t have to go about it alone—Thriveworks Peachtree City counselors and career coaches are here to help.

We often ask children what they want to be when they grow up. When they’re young, the answers are often whimsical—a mermaid, a cowboy—but as they grow, the answers shift to the careers they’ve heard the most about: doctor, lawyer, accountant, web developer, and so on. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of options out there, but most of us need a little help exploring them. Let Thriveworks Peachtree City help you explore your options so you can make the best decision.

When Should I Seek Career Counseling?

Whether you’re a fresh college graduate or a seasoned professional looking to advance, career counseling is a proactive move that will benefit you for years to come. We also work frequently with people, like Gayle, who have recently been laid off and are looking to make a major change to gain stability. People go to career counseling for a variety of reasons. Some spend all day being miserable, and they know 40 hours a week of the same for the next thirty or forty years isn’t going to cut it. Some people have a perfectly adequate work experience, but they know they’re capable of more. You see, you don’t have to want a new career to pursue career counseling. We also work with clients who know they are capable of higher levels of achievement, but need a little help getting there. Sometimes, those clients need help with people skills, while in other situations they need assistance developing a plan for how to appropriately stand out and contribute more at work.

We also work with clients whose income has stagnated. Ideally, your income should grow a bit every year, commiserate with your increased value as you become more and more expert at your work. However, many positions top out at a certain salary, requiring employees to seek a higher position, often at a different company. Searching for a new job, even in the same field, can feel stressful. It’s common to find the interviewing process tough, but we can help you practice the process. We can even help you get clear on your three, five, and ten-year goals so your answers at the interview are precise and true to your career values.

If you’re interested in transitioning to a new field, whether or not you know what field that may be, we can help. By working with you to learn as much as possible about your career goals, lifestyle, personality, strengths, and weaknesses, we can assist you in exploring career opportunities that mesh well with your personality and capabilities. If you need to gain additional degrees or certifications, we can help you develop a plan to pursue those, first. It’s also important when making a career shift to consider finances. While money is far from the most important thing in life, it can cause stress if not handled properly. With that in mind, we can assist you in making a plan for transitioning that will ease the financial burden caused by taking time off.

Thriveworks Peachtree City counselors also work with students fresh out of college. Exiting college with a degree doesn’t guarantee immediate employment, and it definitely doesn’t guarantee certainty about which career to pursue. We can help you find where your education, interests, and aptitude intersect. Thriveworks Peachtree City career counselors believe every person can find a career that fulfills them on a deeper level. We’ve worked with clients in every employment situation imaginable, and we’re ready to work with you, too.

I have known Stephanie for over six years and worked side by side with her in a mental health center for part of that time. What comes across first and foremost is her caring and concern for her clients and her determination to see that their needs are met. She brings to her work a wide range of experience and training along with confidence that is reassuring and a comfort to those in distress. She can deal calmly with the most severe issues as well as with problems of daily living. In the time that I've known her, she has been licensed in three different states to practice in a variety of settings. If you come to her in a time of need, in a time of emotional upheaval or difficult questions, I don't think you will find a more competent or more caring therapist.
