Year 12s are loving online career counselling

Maybe they are lonely. Maybe they are worried. Maybe they hope I will ground them as this Covid-19 storm swirls around us.

Whatever is going on, I am having great success with online counselling. Year 12s are loving talking over their possible futures online.

The Loveliness of Floating Ideas

When I go into a school to do career counselling I get too many kids in a day. They are scheduled too close together. I don’t have time to mull things over.  It is rushed and exhausting.

Now that we are doing it from home we have plenty of time to chat and float ideas.

There is no formula to this. We are both headed in the same direction but the path isn’t automated.

We chat. I muddle through my notes. I phone-a-friend. I research information. I hook students up with experts across the In Focus Network.

There is TIME to find the right path forward.

Chilling Out

Students have time to chat to their friends. They talk to their parents. They go for a walk and think. They go back to their teachers to talk.

Then come back and we chat again as we work our way through the career maze together.

Because there is time, the students can explore and unearth their best possible future.
