Our Career Counsellors hold a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology. As trained counsellors with a career focus, they help you learn more about yourself, explore life and career-related goals and identify how your unique qualities align with broader career areas. They take a non-judgmental approach - this means they will not tell you what to do. Instead, they work collaboratively with you and provide support as you explore your plan for the future.
