Career Counselling Brisbane

Give your career the attention it deserves

Career success doesn't happen by accident. Whether you are building a stronger working life right where you are, or you are looking to make some changes, we can teach you new ways to stretch and strengthen your career.

Change is coming

After an extended review of our program offerings, we are about to embark upon a complete re-vamp of the Career Spa website. In the meantime, there will be things here on the website that don't work as well as we'd like. We'd appreciate your patience, as we are working to get it right. Please stay in touch - great things are happening!

In general, people said:
“This is an outstanding program. It is unique in that it enables individuals to work at their own pace and does not impose a model or a view that a career = an established job. The program opens your thinking to possibilities and options that you otherwise would not consider. The wonderful relaxed setting encourages you to open your mind to "new horizons".

Do you have a story to tell?

There’s a lot to learn from reading or hearing about other people’s career stories. We are collecting stories about how people go about building and crafting their career – the good, the bad and the ugly. If you have a story to tell, or you know someone who does, contact us to find out more about adding your story to our catalogue.
