Career Counselling & Case Studies

Michael Griegson

I had recently started a new job and unfortunately it was not working out...  My wife... recommended I look into career counselling and it was through her investigations that I was put in touch with Dawn.

Dawn reassured me that the feeling I had towards my new job/employer was normal... Dawn helped me regain my confidence... To begin with I could list maybe 4 or 5; now I have 63 strengths listed.

Ongoing help

Job loss, career changes or personal changes can all result in a shift in how you feel about your current situation.


We recognise that this can be a difficult and sometimes traumatic time for individuals. We know that you will need support during these times and we can offer you a free consultation and an individually tailored and customised programme to help you meet that challenge and turn adversity into an opportunity to grow and change.


Our programme will offer objective support to help you to:


• Recognise you may be in career transition

• Understand what you have to offer, identifying transferable and marketable skills

• Make the maximum of what you have

• See yourself objectively and understand what you really need and what motivates you

• Find a direction and focus

• Find a way to make the changes and take control of what you want to do

• Job search techniques

• Market yourself effectively to get an interview

• Recreate structure to effectively maximise your time

• Interview techniques to improve your performance in interviews and meetings

 with potential employers


This programme will get you ready and prepared to re-enter the job market.

Please call us to discuss your situation and costs. We feel it is very important that you have a good understanding of how careers counselling can help you so we do not charge for the initial consultation.

I was looking to move from a sales role within an organisation which was unique and very specialist... into a similar role in Edinburgh and it was proving rather tricky to find suitable companies.

Dawn was fantastic... She spent time with me identifying my core transferable skills and advising me how best to "sell myself" ... without bewildering the interviewer with very complex industry jargon.
