One in three students drop out or change course in their first year

Taking the first steps after leaving high school are often the most important ones of all. Yet these days, it is very common for students to choose the wrong pathway, which can effect their self-esteem, confidence and motivation levels.

Providing Guidance and the Right Tools to students

In this ever-changing employment market, it is critical students are equipped with the right tools and skills to navigate their way into meaningful careers. Helping students gain understanding about 'who they are', how they learn and what makes them 'tick', creates a strong platform from which they follow a pathway they are most suited to and motivated by.

Combining my Career Consulting and Life Skills Coaching, I treat each student as a complete individual. Helping them to also effectively deal with issues such as exam/study anxiety and finding further ways to build confidence and self esteem, are part of guiding them in a direction most suited to them.

 All aspects of a student's personality, interest and aspirations are taken into account before any decisions and recommendations are made. Finding out more about 'who they are' and 'what makes them tick' is often the missing piece of the jigsaw in the decision-making process with regards to pathways and career choices.

The Extended DISC Profile for students reveals the vital information required before important decisions are made about their next steps.

"This really is a no brainer ... every parent with a teenager should do this.  It is without a doubt, one of the best things we could have done for our son. It gave him clarity, direction and a real boost to his self-esteem at a very important time after a difficult year 10."  D.Lake 'A very relieved parent!

"As a mum of 16 year old boy, I was looking for support to encourage my son on the right career path and guide him in successfully completing school and preparing for university. We had so many questions and decision to make regarding subject selections. Karen helped my son to identify his strengths and the skills he was more confident in. I'm grateful my son has more direction and focus so he can maximise his opportunities." S.Penaar parent year 11 student

"Thanks to Karen I've become more motivated to learn and confident in my education. The "tips and tricks" I've been shown have helped me become more focused while doing my school work and efficiently use my time to study effectively. I can't thank Karen enough for the help I've received because it's made my school life more rewarding and less stressful". C. Pienaar Year 11 student

'My son was really impressed with you Karen! The session gave us the hope and focus he needed which was fantastic! You not only helped him, but as a parent I got so much out of it too in terms of what I need to do. I wish every parent would come and see you. It was the 'break-though' we were looking for'.
