Career counselling is often misunderstood as being how to advise people which career is best for them. This book explains what career counselling actually is, why people seek it and what career counsellors can do to help their clients. Firmly rooted in humanistic counselling, this guide takes a `whole person' approach whilst maintaining a career focus.
Concentrating on the process, skills and techniques of career counselling with adults, the authors examine the problems which are typically brought to counsellors and how these are often entangled with issues outside work. Illustrated throughout by examples of techniques with a wide range of clients, topics discussed include screening and contracting, development of self-understanding, facilitating decision-making, self-management and professional progression.
