Throughout my career I’ve worked with so many young people who felt lost, misguided, overwhelmed or just plain uninterested about what options lay ahead of them after they finish school.

I’ve helped these students start to feel in control of their choices, given them the motivation to pursue careers that they previously felt were out of reach and most importantly, I gave them the confidence to believe in themselves and make decisions around their own interests and passions.

A guidance session lasts approximately 1.5 hours and during this time we will discuss your subjects in school, which ones you like or dislike, we’ll discuss extra curricular in school, interests and hobbies outside of school and any work experience or employment you have had to date.
