We Deliver Career Coaching With Heart!
Learn to be Resilient & Boost Your Productivity.
Using proven methods and scientific data, our coaches help put you in touch with the power of your heart. We call this our Connect Head & Heart Approach and it’s something that other career counsellors and companies unfortunately overlook – much to the detriment of their clients.
You see, through easy to learn HeartMath techniques such as heart focus, heart breathing and heart feeling, you can actually learn to use the power of your heart to affect every other system in the body – including your brain.
Top companies (like Google, Facebook and IBM) are using these techniques to improve productivity and boost performance and now you can too.
Through this part of our coaching, you’ll learn how to be resilient in stressful situations – like when you are searching for a job!
We’ll show you how to handle your emotions and provide you with the knowledge and resources that will enable you to get what you want professionally faster and easier and with much less stress.
How do I start?
It's super-easy. Book a free chat and get started today.
Step 1: Book a Free Phone Chat with Nisha
Get started quickly and easily by booking a free phone chat with Nisha, our Client Happiness Manager.
She's got the skinny on all our services & all the coaches on our team. She can answer any questions you have about coaching and put your mind at ease.
Once you are ready to start, she can book you in for a Turning Point session with the coach of your choice.
Step 2: Meet With Your Coach for Your Turning Point Session
One of our fabulous coaches will meet with you one-on-one in-person at one of our 4 Ontario offices or online via Zoom (these in-depth sessions are just like meeting face-to-face only you won’t have to worry about battling traffic or the weather to get to a physical location).
Your coach will listen to your concerns and at the end of the session you will walk away with our Personalized Report for More Happy Mondays featuring a step by step strategy for you to follow to achieve greater career success. No two reports are the same - each one is individually personalized for your unique situation and strategy to move forward, faster.
Step 3: Consider Our Powerful Coaching Programs
We also offer continued support through longer, specially-priced coaching programs. At the end of the Turning Point session, after delving deep into your situation and developing a clear strategy for you, your coach will make a recommendation for one of our coaching programs, if applicable.
The Turning Point delivers solid value on its own - you can take what you've learned and proceed better equipped than you were before … Or we can continue working together through one of our longer coaching programs that offers full support, personal career advice and proven, street-smart methods for finding your ideal work. The decision is totally up to you!
Our coaching programs are offered in 4, 7 or 12 session packages and include all the personalized career development resources (assessments, software) you will need to be successful. Prices range from $888 (4 sessions) to $2388 (12 sessions) - book a phone chat with Nisha to find out more!

"Coaching at Careers by Design helped me achieve the confidence and self-worth I always had but never was able to realize before.
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."

Turning Point FAQ
Got questions? We've got answers!
Is all career coaching the same?
Drawing on over 13 years of rolling up our sleeves and helping professionals, we have created a powerful and unique solution. This allows us to be more effective than career counselling or coaching alone and provide a service that addresses all the barriers that can stop you from moving forward.
This is a truly holistic approach that helps you to build a life and career where you will be happy and fulfilled. It goes beyond what others consider to be holistic because it draws on all your resources - your logical, analytical side and your intuition, instincts and feelings. This prevents you from falling into the trap of going down a road that sounds good but just doesn’t feel right.
We combine our experience of guiding 100s of professionals from all walks of life with best practices from related fields.
Here’s our recipe for success:
Career advising - providing you professional counsel and advice
Coaching - recognizing that you are the expert in knowing what is right for you and using conversation and career discovery exercises to help you to know yourself better and make good decisions
Career counselling - Building skills that will enable you to be successful in times of career change or job search and providing emotional support
Positive Psychology - Helping you to recognize and build on your strengths, understand what makes you happy (at work and in life) and teaching you the tools to excel in all areas of life
Have you helped people in my industry?
We have successfully worked with people in almost all industries. Our team approach means that we share expertise when needed.
I've never used this type of service, how does it work?
More than 90% of our clients have never used this type of service belore.
This session is like taking a test drive. We have designed the Turning Point session to offer you all the benefits of working with a professional career coach. We pack a lot of value into this first session.
After this session, you can decide whether you want to continue working with your coach to implement the strategy that is discussed. If you choose to move forward, we offer coaching programs to give you the professional support to achieve your goal.
There is absolutely no obligation to continue onto a coaching program.
I'm having trouble finding a job, can you help me?
We all have blindspots. We will help you see where you are missing the mark. In the Turning Point session, we will ask you questions to understand what you are already doing.
Then we will make professional recommendations and develop a strategy for how you can be more effective. Our programs offer the opportunity to have a professional who you can work with on all parts of the job search process.
Can I do my Turning Point session over the phone?
YES - you certainly can and we have many clients across Canada who have successfully been coached by telephone. We encourage Zoom because it's free and is very effective for face-to-face coaching but telephone can be very useful for cases when Zoom is not feasible.
When booking just choose the option for "Online by Video Zoom" and before you complete your booking there will be an option presented for 'Telephone' - just remember to select that.
If you have any questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are Zoom video or Telephone coaching sessions effective?
We have worked remotely and created successful outcomes for clients across Canada and some very remote places (like an island off the coast of Russia).
Some of our local clients also prefer this option because it saves travel time and allows them to be in their own environment where they feel more comfortable.
Do I need to know what type of career I want before I use your service?
No. We will help you to uncover what type of career will be a good fit for you.
If you already know what type of career/job you want, we will help you to achieve that goal.
All coaching is personalized and targeted to your individual needs.
