Successful Change Advocate You do want to change the direction of your career or your occupation completely but don’t know how to? Is that glass ceiling real to you? Are you living with a past career decision which doesn’t work for you now? Or are you just lost? At times, I have said yes to all of these things which lead me to learn how to change my career and follow my passion. Now helping others to successfully change careers, occupations, jobs or just choose the right professional development, training or course is what makes my career so enjoyable and rewarding. I have cultivated an educational background and experience in Human Resource Management and Career Development which gives me perspectives from both the employer, employee and career development and counselling disciplines. I maintain memberships in a number of Professional bodies and actively maintain my knowledge in the career, vocational and educational areas to be up-to-date and current for my clients and with what is happening in New Zealand, Australia and Internationally Whether through counselling, on-going supervision or coaching, advising or supporting, I can support you to find your fit, reach for the dream job or just figure out what to do next. I am registered counsellor with New Zealand Counselling Association (NZAC) and certificated to facilitate the Myer Briggs Personality Type Indicator (MBTI). As a member of several career-focused associations, I am informed about the latest best practice in the human resources, recruitment and career development fields. I am at present the Career Development Association of NZ (CDANZ) National President. I work as a Career Development Advisor at the University of Waikato. Career Journey is my private practice. If you would like to change your life and career or start one, connect with me through Changing your life today, don’t wait to be happy and fulfilled!
