Vocational & Career Counselling

Career counselling

Vocation has a different meaning to each person; a gateway to a rewarding career or a means to an end in finding a job to afford the cost of living. Learning a vocation is often the best chance a person has in achieving financial security. The long term goal is to achieve independence, economic self-sufficiency and build self-esteem through the occupation. 


Vocational Counselling, or Rehabilitation, is a set of services designed to practice a vocation in a productive way. Together we will focus on workplace requirements and performance, including aptitude, determining physical and cognitive abilities, as well as help you locate training programs. We work with you on building communication and interpersonal skills that will help you learn how to make professional and evidence-based decisions.
