Discover what you want and how to make it happen with student career counselling
I know what it’s like not knowing what you want – it’s an awful feeling. It’s times like these that you rush into choices you regret, waste money on unfulfilling degrees, and hop around aimlessly between courses. Being confused about your career is a lot like being in a fog. And when you’re in a fog, you can’t move forward…
I help young people like you out of that fog. Together, we’ll use student career tests to pin-point what you love and what you’re good at. We’ll work closely to choose the right study, travel or job options for you and develop an action plan to make that happen. With Karen Your Career Coach, you’ll learn more about yourself and the infinite opportunities that are out there, and make well-informed choices about your future.
What do you need help with?
- Choosing VCE/high school subjects for the career you want
- Choosing degrees or courses based on the subjects you’ve done in VCE/high school
- Deciding if you want to travel and what option are out there
- Considering a GAP year or voluntary work and where these experiences might lead you
As an expert student career advisor, I’ve helped young people just like you gain clarity to make the right choices, revealing a world of possibilities.

You already know what you love and where your talents lie, but you’re not quite sure of what to apply for and how. I can help you with the nitty gritty, like applications and whether you want to study here or overseas. This includes:

All good schools need a student careers counsellor to help their students transition after graduating. If your school doesn’t already have a careers advisor, or you need to take some of the weight off your teaching staff, you can contract a qualified expert like Karen Your Career Coach to do the job.
I’ll come in for a fixed period of a few weeks and conduct feedback interviews with students using the Morrisby, Career Fast Track and Strong Interest Inventory reports. Your students will gain the confidence they need to follow their dreams.
Kick start your students’ futures with qualified career coaching.

Phone and Digital Consultations
My services are super-flexible, designed for people like you who can’t always make it into my office. Although I love working with clients face-to-face, I’m also here for you via phone or internet. This is especially true after the first few consultations, you’ll go off and do your own thing while we keep in touch via email, skype, Facetime or iMessage. That way I can give you support, tips and check your progress as you start your career journey.
