Career Counselling can be defined as a method of assessment people, interests, values and talents to help them explore a range of career option. Typically, career counseling is a process, which helps in identifying the career interest of an individual and in this way, the ideal profession or career options for him or her.
Counselling is often performed face-to-face in confidential sessions between the counsellor and clients. However, counselling can also be undertaken by telephone, in writing and, in these days of the Internet, by email or video conferencing. Counselling can and may take many different formats to bring a person to a better understanding of them self and others. It can therefore be seen that counselling can be of benefit to a person experiencing problems in finding, forming, and maintaining relationships.
Client is stuck with the problem they are facing.

Clients usually find counselling a very liberating and empowering experience. That is not to say that they do not feel nervous or daunted when first approaching a counsellor, they do! However, the process and the feeling afterwards, are usually very positive and beneficial.
