Based more on Coaching than Psychotherapy, career counseling services involve practical goal setting sessions aimed at helping clients to get both motivated and organized. Career counseling packages normally include at least four sessions as well as an online career assessment test. Using the wowi combined with practical sessions focused on resume writing and interviewing skills in addition to building client self confidence, enables clients to reach goals that they never thought possible.

- Resume Critique and development of final edit as well as job search and networking plans

- Confidence Building, It is very easy to lose heart when you are isolated and spending non-productive days at home, getting a new routine and focus can help you see unemployment or job changes as an opportunity for a better quality of life.
Career tests help you narrow down, from the thousands of occupations, the ones that are most suitable for you. They do this by matching your test results to the requirements of the many available careers. The result is a list of occupations which fit your unique profile. And from that list you can begin more fully exploring those that are most appealing to you.
Work can give your life meaning, it often defines who you are, determines who you spend time with, and how you live. Because the right job can enrich your life, whereas the wrong job can drain you mentally, physically and spiritually; it is critical to avoid mistaken career paths and to find your own unique, satisfying place in the world of work.” – Gregory P.M. Neidert, Ph.D. (2001)
The World of Work Inventory (WOWI) is a comprehensive career assessment instrument, which has been carefully constructed to help a client learn the most about him or herself in relation to the wide variety of occupations available.
The WOWI does this by combining information about a client’s:
- Subjectively selected educational and occupational choices
- Objectively assessed preferences for particular job duties
- Aptitudes and achievement in various areas
- Preferences for particular qualities of the work environment
- Just because someone likes something does not mean she or he is good at it.
- Just because someone is good at something does not mean that she or he
will like doing it.
- Just because someone likes something and is good at it does not mean
she or he has the appropriate “work-style” or temperament for doing it.
With these assumptions in mind, the WOWI was developed to include three distinct, yet integrated, measures: interests, skills and aptitudes and work styles.
