Questions to ask yourself
- Are you stuck in a rut?
- Does it feel like your work has no meaning?
- Is your current work environment getting you down?

The self-knowledge you’ll gain will help you to make the best decisions about your future.
“The outcome of the exercises we did I think pointed in exactly the direction I will go and has given me a reference point that I can and do reflect back on as well as a goal. This I think is what I was lacking as I had no idea of what to work towards. Cheers for your advice and input, and the whole process was actually a lot of fun.” Matt S
Talking to an experienced career counsellor helps you to identify what’s causing your dissatisfaction. It’s possible your work isn’t aligning with your values or personality type. Or it could be that you need a new challenge within your existing job.
Professional counselling with Jo Davies will tease out the truth and open doors to new possibilities.
“Jo did some great work with my career re-planning when I was looking to change things up at age 49. The exercises we went through definitely helped to get my mind away from the narrow-focus marketing-specific roles I was considering and to look more widely at my other strengths, such as logistics, analysis and communications, which immediately helped me to widen my scope and re-think my career direction. Within a few weeks of our session I was delighted to secure an exciting new role, one that fits my wider set of skills and I'm very happy with this result Thanks again, Jo. You really helped.” Tony P
Career counselling starts with a comprehensive series of self-awareness exercises that help you to understand who you are and what’s important to you. The process will capture your:
“When I arrived at Jo’s office I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do. I had never been able to identify what career path I was interested in. I finished school and attained a degree, ten years on still had no real plan or permanent job.
Fortunately Jo took the time to get to know me, assess where I had been and where I was at now. Through a series of testing, questions and information gathering we were able to work together and establish what would work for me.
I was amazed to see how Jo’s methods proved so successful in working out what job would be an ideal fit for me.
Jo is a true professional and has a vast understanding of what jobs are available, what would work for some and not for others. I walked away with very clear instructions of what I needed to do. The next day I applied to university and for the first time in my life I know what I want to do and where I want to be.
Thank you Jo.” E. B.
