"Olivia is a very thorough, engaging and dedicated careers coach. Our sessions always offered much needed clarity and I left each one with a new-found sense of buoyancy and direction. Olivia provided practical tools for me to implement in the interim and extended introductions to a number of relevant contacts. She also worked with me on the revision of my CV, with great perspicacity and insight. Working with Olivia has been a pleasure throughout and I intend to continue to use her services in the future." Kirsten Cottone, Director of Talent Quests Australia, June 2016.

"Olivia delivered a fantastic session at our office on Positive Psychology as it relates to life at home and in the workplace. The session was not only highly informative, but very interactive and she managed to captivate the audience from the get go!" Tatum Steers, Strategy & Communications Manager at Accommodation & Care Services, April 2016. 

"Olivia has been a fantastic Career Coach. She has steered me through a range of options and expertly assisted in identifying my strengths and in becoming market ready. A thorough and dedicated professional." Matthew Potter, Dobsons Creek Project, October 2015.

"Olivia has recently provided career coaching including reviewing and assessing my resume and online profile as I look to transition into a new industry. In a small amount of time she was able to provide me with valuable and succinct feedback which was actionable. Her help allowed me to get a better understanding of my own personal strengths and weaknesses and the areas I need to improve in as I look to transition my career. She also has an extensive list of contacts which she was able to approach and seek additional feedback and advice on my behalf. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Olivia and would definitely consider using her services again in the future." Andrew Wiadrowski, Project Engineer, September 2015.

What services are not within the remit of The Career Guide?
The Career Guide is an enabler, not a ‘solution provider’! The Career Guide aims to bring about sustainable change by enhancing your capabilities rather than creating a dependent relationship. The Career Guide supports, facilitates, and collaborates with you through a process of discovery, drawing out your strengths and helping you to remove obstacles, to uncover the best solution for you. The Career Guide is trained in psychology principles such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, focussed on growth, development, and achievement. It is important to note that the Career Guide is not a substitute for appropriate medical or psychological therapy. Those clients seeking assistance with clinical needs such as anxiety and depression, will be referred to the relevant experts.
