Event Description

The teen years and early 20’s can be highly stressful as young adults grapple with a range of personal and emotional issues while also trying to get started on the path towards longer-term career satisfaction and success. In this educational session, you will learn why career coaching specifically tailored to the unique needs of young adults (15-24) can help in answering the question “what’s next?”, provide a clearer sense of self-awareness, purpose and motivation, and help reduce anxiety.

By addressing this fundamental question, in conjunction with counselling focused on complementary issues of self-esteem, relationships and motivation, young adults can launch themselves more successfully into adulthood.

You will learn:
•How career exploration and planning can help to successfully ‘launch’ a young adult
•Why an in-depth holistic approach to counselling can identify the needs, strengths and goals of the young adult, and encourage growth and positive change
