Career Counselling – I Feel More Focused and Confident Moving Forward

The purpose of our Career Counselling session today was to drill down and find some new positions and associated pay rates.  At present, I am completing my Bachelor’s degree and am seeking to transfer into a new industry.  I don’t like psychometric testing, and the fact we could talk it through instead was great.  I liked the way you described things, in our Career Counselling session, which allowed me to focus on what I want; as a result, I feel more focused and confident moving forward.

Career Counselling – Your Career Counselling Services Opened My Eyes

Katherine, I found your Career Counselling Services online; after a decade in Social Work I am considering my career options.  I know I need to feel fulfilled, and had a couple of ideas that I wanted to talk through with you.  Our Career Counselling session today opened my mind to new careers that I had never thought about and provided me with labour market insights – in short it offered food for thought.  Katherine, the session today was well worth the drive from Lake Macquarie.  Thank You.

Career Counselling – Because Of You I Found My New Career Direction

Katherine, I found your Career Counselling Services online and contacted you because I have been in Real Estate for over a decade and I feel it is time for a change; I needed some career guidance with regards to career pathways and options.  Between our telephone conversation and our first appointment, I thought about my career options a little more and narrowed it down to a couple of areas.  At the initial session you lasered in on my background and qualifications and highlighted niche areas that I had never heard of but was extremely interested in.  Katherine, you provided insights into industries and made me consider the pros and cons of these career options.   Because of our session, I have found my career direction and I will now work on fine tuning the next steps in order to achieve my goals.  Thank you.

Career Counselling – I Chose You Due To Your Holistic Approach

Katherine, I found your Career Counselling Services on Google and loved the holistic vibe to your website and the different styles you incorporate into it for example the visual and written content to accommodate different readers. Whilst I found another Career Counselling Service online who was closer to home, I did not get the same feeling of confidence when I spoke to them and when I reviewed their online testimonials, I knew they were not for us.  What I liked about you was your website, testimonials and our discussion.  When I spoke to you, about my adults sons individual needs, you took the time to explain your process and reassure me that you look at the individual pieces of a clients background and in the Career Development Report you thoroughly go through these considerations when analysing career options.  Katherine, I am very impressed with your service and my son’s efforts in completing the online and traditional psychometric instruments. In fact, I was in awe of the depth of the process when I came to pick him up today.   The process has really opened my son’s mind and stimulated him to explore career options where before he was stuck.

Career Counselling – You Are Very Good At What You Do – You Offer Valuable Services

Katherine, it is really important work that you do, I appreciated your time and the valuable conversation.  For me, it is very important to be discerning to whom you trust professionally (for Career Counselling).  Katherine, I found you to be very very good at what you do, you offer valuable services that I found extremely beneficial and helped me clarify what I want to do moving forward.  P.S.  I really like the fact that I found a Career Counselling professional in Port Stephens and did not have to drive into Newcastle.

Career Counselling and Career Consulting – Thank You For Your Career Insights and Feedback

Katherine, I came to see you for a Career Counselling session and also for you to review (critique) my Resume and provide me with some feedback.  Truth be told, I had spoken to a lot of other professionals, listened to their feedback and done a lot of work on my Resume before I came to see you and thought it  only needed a tweak here and there; however, after the Resume Critique I realised there is a lot more work to do and I look forward to this challenged based on the information you provided me. Whilst you offered to rewrite my Resume for me, I would like to give it a go myself and then when I have completed this I would like to ask for your feedback again – if that is OK.  thank you for your detailed insights and feedback, I will see you in a couple of weeks.

Career Counselling and Psychometric Profiling (Assessment) – I Came Away Feeling – I Got This!

I first came across Katherine and Blu Ripples about a year ago but did not take any action until a couple of months ago.  I have been for a couple of appointments with Katherine and its like the feeling – you know what, I got this!  I sort of knew the path I wanted to follow but had no clarity around the destination and or the road to it.  Attending two appointments and undertaking a couple of tests (MBTI and WPI Leadership Development), its like I have now got the GPS going with the address put in for me – I just need to drive!.  Thank You Katherine for your professional inputs and I will be seeking further appointments very soon.  Highly recommended!

Career Counselling and Psychometric Assessment – Our Sessions Were Very Helpful

When I first came to see you I was looking at different (career) options to consider for future but unable to select one and make a decisive move.  At our initial Career Counselling session, I stated that I had completed my Undergraduate (Bachelor) and two Masters programs and was considering: – continuing to work for my current employer, opening a franchise in my particular field or establishing and operating my own (independent) business.  At our first session we talked about my background and goals; and we discussed options including the Career Development Report vs undertaking a couple of Psychometric Tests (instruments).  We decided that it was best to proceed with the Psychometric Tests and as a result you sent me the Majors PTI (Personality Profile) and the WPI (Workplace Personality Index) Leadership Report online; I completed these and then we got together to discuss the outcomes.  I was very impressed with the outcomes, they described me very accurately and provided an explanation as to why I have been struggling with making a decision; also the reports outlined my strengths and areas that I need to work on particularly if I wanted to go down the route of owning my own business, be it a franchise or something I create from scratch.  As I said to you in our second consultation, I had my GPS but now you have given me the tools to unwrap it; not only do I know how to turn it on but also how to program it it to reach my destination.  I have found our sessions to be very helpful, I am looking forward to using your Career Counselling and Psychometric Profiling Services again in the future.  Thank you Katherine.

Career CounsellingYou Have Done Great Work

The Career Counselling Services you have provided to him (my son) with an opportunity to talk which is what he needs as much as anything else.  This (process) has shared a burden for him.  It has also helped me as I knew he was at least talking.  Please know you have done great work.  Sometimes just being there when required is enough… which was making me VERY happy.   Thanks again for everything you have done.  Your time and efforts have been well spent in my opinion.

Career Counselling – You Listened, Challenged Me and Gave Me An Objective Perspective

After 10 years working as an Audiologist, I was seeking career guidance on how to move forward in my career.  Katherine, you listened, challenged me and gave me an objective perspective.  Because of our career discussion today, I found my answers and now I know how I want to move forward in my career.  As a result, I am looking forward to our next Career Counselling session in which I will undertake the management and personality profiling (psychometric instruments) to help identify my professional strengths and areas requiring future development.   Thank you for today.

Career Counselling – My Session Was Authentic, Gave Me Valid Feedback, Tangible Outcomes, And Confidence After My Redundancy

I was made redundant late last year (2018) and had my Resume professionally written by another (online) Resume Writing Service provider.  After taking 3 months off to regroup and determine how I wanted to move forward, I started applying for jobs with the Resume that was created by this provider.  I have since applied for 30 jobs and have received no replies from recruiters or employers.  I started to feel like a fraud (affected my sense of self worth).  Katherine,  I contacted you because I wanted some Career Counselling and help writing my Resume as I am seeking to take a step back from mid level management role so I can undertake my Masters Degree.  Our Career Counselling and Career Consulting session today was authentic and the feedback was valid.  With regards to my Resume, I was previously told that it should only be 1 page and with over 25 years experience I found this difficult, like you said one page does not adequately address my experience, key projects and key achievements.  Today, you gave me permission to do more than one page, you shared your knowledge (Resume Critique Services) and now I have a wealth of notes to refer to and information to work on to promote myself in my Resume.  I am very grateful to you, I feel more confident as I have tangible outcomes to work on.

Career Counselling – My Psychiatrist Recommended You – I Felt We Really Connected!

My Psychiatrist reviewed your website and recommended that I come to see you for Career Counselling; as I have been struggling with my career due to professional and personal circumstances. Katherine, my goal is very simple, I want to get a stable well, well-paying job that provides me with a sense of fulfilment.  In our first session today, I felt that we really connected, and because of this, I am looking forward to our next Career Counselling Session and achieving my career goal.

Career CounsellingOh Mum She is So Nice”

Hi Katherine, I was going to call you today, I spoke to my adult son (in his early 20’s) after his session on Monday and he said “Oh Mum she is so nice”, I was so happy to hear this as he usually takes a little while to open up to people.  I would like to strike while the iron is hot and go ahead with the Career Development Report for him.

Career Counselling – You Listened, Thought Outside The Square and Presented Options

Katherine, I made an appointment to come and see you after a chance meeting at Bagnalls Beach.  I liked that you listened to me, thought outside the square, presented career options and pathways that I have not considered before.  You gave me food for thought.

Career Counselling – You Willingly Shared Knowledge With Me As Well As A Laugh or Two

Kath, I came to you seeking to explore career options and pathways and was trying to decide whether I should use my existing skills and knowledge in the same role in a different company or organisation or to change fields altogether and start a new.  When I first came to see you, I was highly stressed and you calmed me down in the first Career Counselling session.  Over our time together (so far) you willingly shared knowledge with me as well as a laugh or two.  I have had great outcomes so far and am interested to learn what is next in our time together.

Career Counselling As A Result Of Our Sessions With My Son, I Have Seen Remarkable Progress

Katherine, you are an enlightened soul I can tell! I am so grateful for the help (Career Counselling and Career Development Report Services) you have provided to my adult son.  I had a deep and meaningful telephone conversation with him after one of his sessions with you and because of his time with you the progress I have seen in him is remarkable I have not seen him like this in such a long time.   Together with the specialist referral you provided he is making progress (from my point of view) – thank you.   Whilst I am in the Northern Territory, I hope one day we can meet up in person.

Career Counselling and MBTI -Clear Thoughts and Perspective

Over the last year I had found myself in a real rut over what direction I wanted my career to go as I felt I needed a complete change following many years in the Construction Industry.   In the first session with Katherine, she was able to bring an objective overview, firstly highlighting my life and career goals and secondly identifying my interests, passions and strengths. In the second session, Katherine discussed my personality  type (MBTI) test results and it affirmed that I had made the right decision to p,ursue my legal studies and to pursue a career either as a Defender or Police Prosecutor – thus the process allowed me to have clear thoughts and put everything into perspective about how my career should proceed.

Hi Katherine, It’s been a week since our last session and I just wanted to touch base and let you know that I took your advice and contacted TAFE about gaining RPLs (Recognised Prior Learning’s) in Human Resources. I also wanted to say that I am very impressed with the CV you produced for me; it is clearly evident that you provide a high level of professionalism and service, that you are not a bye bye birdie operation like so many others out there in the market place.  Katherine, you helped me recognise my own perceived limitations, challenged and encourage me to think outside the square and to move forward with confidence.  Thank You!
