CAREER COUNSELLING DEFENCE FORCE PEAP PROGRAMToday, I received a lovely text message from a young mum of 3 and partner of a Defence Force Member whom sought Career Counselling Services through the Defence Force PEAP Program. Over a three month period (with some time in between session due to giving birth), this new mum, and I: - Identified her Key Transferable Skills, Explored Employment Options and Pathways, Identified personality type, career interests and options with MBTI and JVIS,and Discussed Job Search Strategies and Techniques with her permission, I have the pleasure of sharing part of this text... I think all our sesisons paid off. I'm feeling very good and I've decided to pursue floristy for now as a side business...... I've gotten very clear on whom I am from our (Career Counselling) sessions, lots sat with me and lots made sense... I am spontaneous and creative and I think I had a hard time accepting that before. I have finally let go of my old business and I'm playing with flowers for now until I am ready to move forward (with study in the future); the kids really are a full time job as it is. I really am thankful for your sessions (followed by prayer, smiley face and hearts emjoi's). Thanks Katherine!!! You are amazing.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT REPORT CENTRAL COAST CLIENT
THE CAREER REPORT - OPENED MY EYES TO THINGS THAT ARE OUT THEREIn the initial consultation period I asked the client (as I do with all Career Development Report Clients)- "What is your short term goal for the Career Development Report - our time together"? The client replied (as many do) - "To help me get unstuck; to figure out how to move forward". At the completion of our third consultation (Report Presentation Session), I asked the client for some verbal feedback in regards to the process and the report and this is what he said "It definitely opened my eyes; to things (careers) that are out there; it gave me a clearer outlook on what I want to go into in terms of career". When I asked the client about the options presented in the report he stated that there are three key positions that he is interested in persuing. If you look back at what this clients initial goal was to help him get unstuck and to figure out how to move forward this was achieved in the clients own words.

CAREER COUNSELLING LORN - MAITLAND REGION
I feel more focused and confident moving forwardThe purpose of our Career Counselling session today was to drill down and find some new positions and associated pay rates. At present I am completing my bachelors degree and am seeking to transfer into a new industry. I don't like psychometric testing and the fact we could talk it through instead was great. I liked the way you described things, in our Career Counselling session, which allowed me to focus on what I want; as a result I feel a lot more focused and confident moving forward.

I CHOSE YOU DUE TO YOUR HOLISTIC APPROACHKatherine, I found your Career Counselling Services on Google and loved the holistic vibe to your website and the different styles you incorporate into it for example the visual and written content to accommodate different readers. Whilst I found another Career Counselling Service online who was closer to home, I did not get the same feeling of confidence when I spoke to them and when I reviewed their online testimonials I knew they were not for us. What I liked about you was your website, testimonials and our discussion. When I spoke to you, about my adults sons individual needs, you took the time to explain your process and reassure me that you look at the individual pieces of a clients background and in the Career Development Report you thoroughly go through these consideration when analysing career options. Katherine I am very impressed with your service and my son's efforts in completing the online and traditional psychometric instruments. In fact, I was in awe of the depth of the process when I came to pick him up today. The process has really opened my son's mind and stimulated him to a explore career options where before he was stuck. Career Counselling Toowoon Bay Client - A Mum's feedback
PERSONALITY PROFILING - Majors PTI
I FELT SCATTERED AND LOST BEFORE - NOW I UNDERSTAND METhe Majors PTi instrument outcomes and report resonated with me. I found the feedback a little weird to hear at first as it was so me and I had a number of of ah ha moments. Katherine, I never thought about my personality and career options in such a way before. The Majors PTi personality report you compiled for me was very valuable to me; it explains and aligns me. Before undertaking the personality profiling test I felt scattered and lost and now I have come to a place of understanding and choice. The Majors PTi instrument and report opened my mind; but then again Katherine every time I come to see you I feel my mind is opened a little more - in different ways.

DEFENCE CAREER COUNSELLING - KEY TRANSFERABLE SKILLS REPORT
My Key Transferable Skills Report is Relevant and Very HelpfulI LOVE the way my Key Transferable Skills Report is written; how you quickly and accurately summarised my experiences into skills such as Systems Analysis. The Key Transferable Skills Report will be very helpful in helping me recognise the skills I have when searching for job advertisements online and when I write my resume. Katherine, I also love that you have broken my skills down into four key areas for example foundation and specialist skills; the report is pretty good it is more than I could ever come up with. As a result, I feel more confident in applying for roles that I may have passed over previously. Thank you Defence Career Counselling - PEAP Program Client - Medowie NSW

BECAUSE OF YOU I FOUND MY NEW CAREER DIRECTIONKatherine, I found your Career Counselling Services online and contacted you because I have been in Real Estate for over a decade and I feel it is time for a change; I need needed some career guidance with regards to career pathways and options. Between our telephone converesation and our first appointment, I thought about my career options a little more and narrowed it down to a couple of areas. At our intial session you lasered in on my background and qualification and highlighted niche areas that I had never heard of but was extremeley interested in. Katherine, you provided insights into industries and made me consider the pros and cons of these career options. Because of our sesison, I have found my career direction and I will now work on fine tuning the next steps in order to acheive my career goal. Thank you!

Thank you for your career insights and feedback
Katherine, I came to see you for a Career Counselling session and also for you to review (critique) my Resume and provide me with some feedback.Truth be told, I had spoken to a lot of other professionals, listened to their feedback and done a lot of work on my Resume before I came to see you and thought it only needed a tweak here and there; however after the Resume Critique I realised there is a lot more work to do and I look forward to this challenge based on the information you provided me.
Whilst you offered to rewrite my Resume for me, I would like to give it a go myself and then when I have completed this I would like to ask for your feedback again - if that is OK.Thank you for your detailed insights and feedback, I will see you in a couple of weeks.

CAREER COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOMETRIC PROFILING AUDIOLOGIST - I CAME AWAY FEELING - I GOT THIS!
I first came across Katherine and bluripples about a year ago but did not take any action untill couple of months ago. I have been for couple of appointments with Katherine and its like the feeling - you know what, I got this!.
I sort of knew the path I wanted to follow but had no clarity around the destination and or the road to it. Attending the two appointments and couple of tests (MBTI and WPI Leadership Development), its like I have now got the GPS going with the address put in for me- I just need to drive! Thank you Katherine for your professional inputs and I will be seeking further appointments very soon. Highly recommended.
