Our Time Together – What to expect in a Career Session
As Katherine tells all her Career Counselling and Consulting clients, at their initial career consultation, “we can-not ethically guarantee outcomes; we do not have a magic wand or crystal ball and can-not go abracadabra your wish is granted that is the stuff of fairy tales”.
However, “the more open and honest you are with me and the process; the more willing you are to take of your mask off, dig deep and delve into your history and take constructive action steps the more positive the outcomes are likely to be; and many clients have had positive outcomes” – click here to read some of our client testimonials.
Thus, what you will find is that we will provide you with an Agreement for Service, ask you a lot of questions and listen to you, not to judge or discriminate, but to help identify and fit the pieces of the puzzle together based on your individual needs, wants, considerations, ethical guidelines and the scope of my area of expertise.
So, if you are ready to take your mask off, to be real, dig deep and explore your past to create your future call Blu Ripples today and let us start this exciting collaborative journey; I look forward to speaking with you soon.
