You’ve lost your job…

You're contemplating a career change…

Or you’re simply trying to decide which career path is right for you…

Career Counselling Brampton and Toronto

Work plays a significant role in our lives. Not only does it provide the income that pays for you and your family’s necessities, but it also  becomes part of our identity.The workplace is where most people spend the majority of their time, next to the home. It is only natural then, to feel some amount of pressure to be employed and to be satisfied with one’s employment circumstances. But what happens when you are not satisfied with your job or career? Or when you don’t know which career to pursue?

In today’s society, job security is not what it once was, and more and more people are finding themselves unemployed or underemployed. With increasing pressure to cut costs and reduce spending, many companies are downsizing and leaving employees jobless. This can be a stressful situation for anyone, especially if you are the sole provider for your family, but it is also an opportunity to change direction and discover new skills. Leaving a job or career you thought would support you into retirement can be a scary experience, and you may feel disoriented or behind the times in terms of skills and knowledge. There are many programs designed to help you upgrade your skills and support you as you re-enter the job market, and career counselling brampton can be a very valuable tool if you find yourself in this situation.

Perhaps you haven’t even embarked on your career path yet, and you are feeling overwhelmed by family and friends and pressure from society to hurry up and start being productive. You have probably had some part-time jobs that have provided you with basic skills, but you know you want something more fulfilling. A career counsellor can give you the appropriate tests and assessments that will help you gain insight into your strengths, weaknesses, and personality values in order to lead you to professions you may not have even considered or known about before.

The psychotherapists and psychologists at McDowall Counselling & Consulting Group want to help you discover, or rediscover, what it is that sets you apart from other job-seekers. We offer a safe and confidential atmosphere where you can feel free to explore your options, guided by a compassionate, skilled and empathic counsellor. We understand that career change or starting a career can be stressful, so we are here to provide you with the support you need to make the process as easy as possible.
