Career Coaching

SERVICE NOTICE: We're here to support you!
To support physical distancing, our career coaches are working remotely. Upcoming appointments will be moved to either Google Hangouts or phone.

We are currently unable to accept new clients into Transition to Career (T2C) and Career Coaching. Both services remain active for existing clients.

Please complete this form if you are interested in registering for either program. We will contact you as soon as we are able to accept new clients.


Navigating your career can sometimes leave you feeling lost, blocked, frustrated, and in need of some help moving forward.

Career coaching is a working alliance between you and your coach. It will help you identify and understand challenges and obstacles, recognize their impact, and develop personalized strategies in addressing them. A series of career coaching appointments can help you to:

  • Develop a deeper self-awareness and self-concept
  • Clarify your career-related goals
  • Break through various limitations and barriers
  • Build motivation while working towards immediate and future goals
  • Strengthen your approach to lifelong learning and self-discovery
