Who do we help?
Making choices about future career direction can be daunting for anyone, but especially for adolescents and adults experiencing learning, behavioural, social and/or emotional difficulties. As such we have decided to add career and vocational counselling to our existing range of services.
Comprehensive career and vocational counselling can help individuals identify future career directions and allow them to move forward with clarity and confidence. It will help them make decisions that are true to their unique characteristics.
Indigo’s career and vocational counselling is designed to assist:
- Learners and young adults, who are uncertain what to study
- Young adults and adults who are uncertain which career path or paths to explore and follow
- Young adults and adults who feel stuck in their studies or careers wanting to determine a way forward
- An individual who wishes to clarify his potential or aptitude profile to inform a job decision or career path

Assessments take 3-4 hours depending on specific needs.
