There is an old saying that states “that what we think we want to do (an usually study for) when we leave school is not necessarily what we will end up doing when we are 25, 35, 55 or beyond for that matter”.

Careers Counselling is about helping you identify and explore what YOU want to do with your professional life not what others perceive you SHOULD do.

Why is this so important?  Well in my opinion there are two (2) good reasons: –

1. Your career helps you achieve your dreams; and
2. 30-40 years is a long death sentence if you are stuck in a job or profession you hate – it literally sucks the life out of you instead of providing inspiration and motivation.
