Something happened in your workplace or career and it's got you worried.
Maybe it was a single incident.
Or, more likely – the cumulative effect of multiple things.
When you’re facing a career problem head on – and you know you need to make a change – it can be scary.
And, it can be even harder to figure out things by yourself when you’re already working full time, or dealing with the challenge of unemployment.
But your career is important to you and you want things to be different.
And you certainly deserve to be happy and fulfilled in the work you do.
So you’ve persevered and you kept going – trying to find your way. You know there’s got to be something better -- something more satisfying – out there for you. And you hold on to the hope that someday you will have work that you feel excited about.
But hope and reality can seem worlds apart. Day-to-day pressures and obligations have made it hard for you to achieve this dream. What’s more, you feel stuck or overwhelmed when you try to move forward. Sometimes it feels like the sheer amount of choices is paralyzing. Other days it can feel like you have no options at all.
It can be frustrating when progress is slow. And it can be tempting to give up on your dreams.
Maybe you feel like you just don’t belong in the industries or jobs you’re thinking about. Or, maybe you feel uncertain about your ability to make a living pursuing something you love. You could find yourself re-writing your resume for the 7th time, or applying to yet another job -- without really knowing what will make you happy.
“It's like the wheels are turning but you're not moving forward”
What’s more, everyone seems to have an opinion about what you should do. This only makes it harder to know what’s right for you. So you second-guess yourself. And more time passes. To make matters worse, your work problem often has a devastating effect on the people closest to you who feel your pain every day. The people you care the most about and never want to hurt are hurting too.
Career stress and turmoil takes its toll. So it’s no surprise if you feel tired and lack the energy and motivation to change things on your own. No wonder so many people never find true satisfaction in their career.
If it's gotten really bad, you may also be experiencing: burn-out, stress–related health issues, and a feeling of uncertainty about the future that’s turned into worry.
It’s normal to feel overwhelmed, worried, sad, frustrated or angry - or a combination of these and other negative feelings. Work accounts for a large part of your life and it impacts every other part – positively or negatively.

Before the Turning Point session, I was stressed, negative, not confident and didn’t know where I was going in my career.
I came out a stronger, more confident and relaxed individual than I was just several months ago.
I am glad I came in and would highly recommend Careers by Design for your career counselling needs."
I like how my Personalized Report gathered my thoughts and feelings into a logical sequence of information, rather than being scattered around in my brain (that's how I was feeling).
I felt like I was taking a step forward - a very positive experience for me. I know it will help others in a similar situation to mine."
The work we have done has allowed me to see that I am capable of not only creating the lifestyle that I want, but also the jobs that will enable me to achieve it."
