Raleigh, NC Career Counseling – Job Therapy, Life Coaching

It’s no fun for anyone, at any age, to have to start looking for new work or a change in career. Sadly, it does happen and with growing frequency too. Job descriptions and job types are constantly changing no thanks to technology. Just a couple of generations ago people would choose a career and that’s what they did for the rest of their life. Now there’s this constant fear that what you train for today might become obsolete in a few years’ time. It can be hard to keep up for the unsuspecting, but career counseling can help people toward transition and move on with their lives.

There have been a lot of changes in the way people work over the past couple of decades. Many of the challenges a worker faces today are as much psychological as they are physical. Vocational counseling can be a godsend for those who struggle to adjust to occupational changes. Here are a few of the things that people have to think about that they never used give a thought to:

  • A constantly tough economic climate
  • Raised retirement ages
  • The fast pace of technology
  • More job insecurity than job security (choose your career with care).

The list could go on. Being in a perpetual state of unease is unhealthy, both in the physical and emotional sense. Keeping plugged in to the world of work is a better approach for managing the way a person thinks, feels and functions when the time comes to move on in their career.

Kim is an amazing counselor. There have only been three persons I trusted with my story. One was a therapist t...Read more

hat seemed more uncomfortable than I was after I shared. The next was an awesome therapist that passed away. Before he died he introduced our group to someone new. We were all very reluctant to have to share with someone new, after taking years to disclose out abuse to anyone. Kim is amazing. She allows us to share when we feel comfortable, and seems to know when to just listen and when a reply is needed. It’s very hard to share, to open up and expose ourselves to anyone. I trust and recommend Kim. When I have a rough day or a bad memory, I don’t have to hold on to it. I take it to my safe place, the room where a victim without a voice transforms into a person that matters. It is a safe place where I don’t have to take the burdens I walk in with back out with me.

hat you should just get over it, or if you talk to a counselor you are “crazy.” I have to say that I was definitely taught wrong. I have went through so much, from being in an extremely violent and controlling relationship, as well as other trauma& I am so glad I connected with Kim, and am finally able to heal. Kim is very supportive and nonjudgemental& I highly recommend her!!
