My mission as career management counsellor

Life is too short to be unhappy and unsatisfied at work! 


We spend more time working than with our close ones.

 

Most car owners go for a tune up yearly and most people see the dentist for an annual check-up. We take time to organize vacations but not near enough is spent planning our professional path.


So why not get a check-up on your professional situation to feel well-aligned with your working preferences, skills, priorities, life values and even your dreams! 


My mission is to provide guidance and support towards happiness and well-being at work!

You can count on my dedication to help you achieve this goal.

With her skilful techniques and her patience, she has accompanied me on a journey to discover my strengths and passions, to better know myself and, in other words, to build an improved future. I thank her for her reassuring words and her confidence in my capabilities. I wish that everyone could meet such a positive and understanding coach in their quest for an enhanced career.”

“Claire knows how to get you to think about where you want to go with your career. I enjoyed our sessions together and, more importantly, I have successfully applied the lessons learned. With Claire's counselling I was able to redirect my career and once again find my passion for my  work. Using her techniques I was able to verbalize what I wanted to do, how I wanted to do it and when.”  

Julien C., Illustrator and licensing artist 


“Since 1998, I have visited Claire  periodically to define and realign professional objectives. I have the impression she knows me more than I know myself, when it comes to managing my career.  Claire can also adjust my CV a lot faster than I can when I need an update.”
