Career Coaching VS. Career Counselling?

At PsyVitalitï, we try to make finding career advice as straightforward and simple as possible. Often times we are asked what the difference is between career counselling and career coaching and how you know which one is right for you.

Career coaching is typically for individuals who know what they want and where they want to be but are unsure of how to get there. It can help with moving you forward in your current career or help you plan a transition into a new career that you are passionate about.

Career counselling, on the other hand, is more of a reflective practice. Most commonly, career counsellors can help if you are unsure about what steps to take to kickstart or improve your professional life. Whether you are unhappy in your current career or are unsure about what career or education path is right for you, a career counsellor can help. They also offer services such as vocational assessments to help you identify which career path is best suited for you.

Regardless of which situation you are in, you can rest assured that PsyVitalitï has qualified professionals that can help. Whether you are looking for a career counsellor or a career coach, we have the services you need to confidently take the next steps in your career.
