Career Counselling

businessman-laptopAre you feeling trapped in your job?

Do you have a sense that you need a change but no real direction or inkling as to what else you would like to do?

Seeking advice from a professional Careers Counsellor at IMconcepts is the first step towards making positive career changes in your life.

Louise Bilato has many years of experience in careers counselling and is committed to the professional development of careers counselling standards through her active participation as a director on the Career Industry Council of Australia (CICA) and the Rehabilitation Counselling Association of Australasia (RCAA).

Life Coaching

lifelife coach (plural: life coaches) - noun  Definition: Somebody who helps people improve lives: somebody who provides advice and support to people who wish to improve their lives, helping them to make decisions, solve problems, and achieve goals.

Therapy and counseling generally deal with a single or specific problem by looking to the past. Life coaching takes a more holistic approach and is quite different from traditional therapy. It deals with a whole life situation starting from the present.

IMconcepts can help you identify what you want in life and can suggest strategies and tactics that will take you from 'where you are now' to 'where you want to be'. This process assists in personal growth. No longer are you alone but you have an ally who will work with you to establish better goals, sustain momentum, overcome setbacks and steer you towards success.
