Rico Stein, Co-ordinator of Kerry Adult Guidance Service on the Career Profile:
"Psychometrik’s Career Profile and Career Index questionnaires are excellent. Clients consistently find them extremely helpful and accurate and greatly facilitates our work with them as Guidance Counsellors."
Comments on the Workshop from Former Delegates:
" I found the workshop extremely useful. It provided a structure to help you set up or continue to develop your practice. Also the course challenged you to think more deeply about the service you were offering and how to be more effective in your role. Of equal importance it provided a platform to market your business and to communicate the value of planning your future to your clients."
Tom O’Donnell, Career Coach, Galway.
“The Workshop was information, interactive and relevant. I have already put into practice many of the ideas and tips learned during the day as I prepare to launch my careers coaching business.”
Majella Byrne, Career Coach, Dublin.
"I found the course very interesting and professionally delivered. It has provided me with great insight into personality and individual difference which I will bring forward into my Coaching career."
Catherine O’Sullivan, Career Coach.
“This is a very through course with many very useful materials. It gives the low down on how to run a career guidance practice and on how exactly to make it profitable and successful. At all times it is realistic and is based on the organiser’s proven experience in the field.”
Joe MacDonagh, Lecturer School of Business, Institute of Technology, Tallaght.
“I registered for the Setting Up a Career Guidance Practice workshop at a time when I was feeling a bit like a car on ice – wheels spinning like mad but nothing moving! I found this workshop to be the traction I needed to allow me to finally become unstuck. I’ve been to many workshops but can count on one hand those that have actually delivered what they promise on the tin – this is definitely one of them. Terry is the consummate professional and not only manages to deliver the material masterfully, with a deep understanding of everything an aspiring guidance professional needs to know, but with humour which makes the day a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Money very well spent!"
Edel Rigas, Career Coach, Dublin.
“The Setting up a Career Guidance Practice workshop is ideally suited to those contemplating that leap into self-employment. It is very much a practitioner led programme that provides a comprehensive overview of what setting up such a service would look like in reality and a toolkit is provided to support this. I would highly recommend this programme to any Guidance professional contemplating “going solo” as an essential first step!”
Anne Wallace, Student Recruitment & Liaison Officer, College of Business & Law, University College Cork.
“I have to say on a personal and professional level it was wonderful to meet you and listen to your years of experiences in working with people in exploring their 'career passion'. The diverse grouping that attended was enlightening and left me with much food for thought.”
JP Connolly, Business Coach.
“It was an enjoyable and productive day. There was great participation and sharing by all participants. You setting up email contacts is an indication of the energy and sharing. Terry did a great job in teasing out serious issues such as what we are offering, our hourly rate."
Seamus Gallagher, Life and Executive Coach, Galway.
“I want to say that I really enjoyed the course last week - it was very insightful."
Wayne Green, Executive and Career Coach.
