A wise person once told me, "Find something you love to do and find someone to pay you to do it." But the reality is that many people find themselves in careers they don't enjoy or lose the career they did enjoy. Whether you are disatisfied with your career, dealing with work related stress, or wondering what you are going to do next, counseling can provide a framework for you to work through the dissonance in your work life and get on the path of meaningful fulfillment with regards to your work or career, regardless of what stage in your life you are at.

Are you fulfilling your purpose or are you not living into your potential? Do you wake up thinking "I was made for this" when it comes to career or do you struggle to get motivated for what lies ahead. Career satisfaction is highly correlated with life-satisfaction. Careers matter beyond how we generate an income. Learn to unblock where you are being held back. Learn the skills essential to make that next career move. Develop leadership skills to grow your company. Identify places you or your company need to make changes for your health and well-being or that of your employees. When we are happy and feel cared for at work, our productivity increases and so does our life satisfaction.

While most career counselors love to give you capacity based profiles of what your talents and interests are for your best bet career choices, Grey Matters international believes that most people make predictably irrational decisions and then after making them learn way to make them fit into their identities using various types of rationalizations and strategies. We are able to assist folks in career counseling type settings by giving a deeper look at their decision making profile so they can better understand where the core frustration or desire is coming from in the world of work.

Work is an enormously important part of our lives. As is often said, we spend more hours of our lives at work than anywhere else. So making that work as good as it can be is vitally important to our health, sanity, and general well-being. Yet that, like so many things, can be easier said than done. I can help you explore your upbringing and education, your personal values, needs, and desires, along with ambitions and fears to help you find and succeed along a well-chosen professional path. This kind of support and guidance is just as important for someone just embarking on a career as it is for someone well along the path. It's never too late to take control of your direction.
