Why Choose Guidance Counselling

Guidance Counsellors offer guidance and advice to assist clients in making informed choices about their future employment, education or training. A Guidance Counsellor can assess your abilities and interests, and subsequently identify possible careers or educational routes for you.


They then look at possible progression plans with you, in order to reach your identified and agreed career and educational goals. This process involves one-to-one counselling and in some cases, it will be necessary to liaise with other professionals.


Guidance and counselling in Ireland covers three separate but yet connected areas:
• Personal and Social Guidance and Counselling
• Educational Guidance and Counselling
• Vocational Guidance and Counselling.
