Integrative Career Counseling

  • I offer convenient online career, life and retirement counseling/coaching to clients globally.

    I assist my clients to:

    • successfully navigate career and life transitions 
    • redefine work and profession in "retirement"
    • build the foundations for resilient career paths
    • create and integrate personal, life affirming solutions to stress and burnout

    I invite you to try Integrated Career Counseling - a combination of career and life counseling/coaching from an experiential and existential psychological perspective. An existential counseling perspective focuses on your life, on your unique experiences, your diverse talents and capacities.

    I am committed to supporting, guiding and encouraging you through this personalized process by helping you integrate and leverage your experiences, your evolving skills and what you value deeply to create customized and lasting solutions.

    My aim is to help you continue to move forward in your life with greater awareness, insight and perspective. The results of our work will enable you to combine what is possible with personally meaningful decisions and actions.

    To book an initial 25 minute conversation please contact me at brittmari@brittmarisykes.ca. I welcome any questions you may have and I look forward to speaking with you.

    Integrative career counseling focuses on understanding a client’s unique experiences, specific contexts and personal resources, and working collaboratively with them to create and map out meaningful and relevant steps forward.

  • Connect Personally With Your Career Goals

    We have become obsessively goal-oriented and this is particularly the case with career goals. Are we personally connected to our goals or merely striving for goals for goals’ sake?

  • Checklists for Managing Stress and Career Transitions

    01/18/2021

    Many clients I speak with raise the topic of work-related stress or the stress associated with career transitions. And they often ask for suggestions or strategies to navigate the stress they are experiencing.

    I wanted to offer some strategies both for stress and for career transitions with two sample “checklists”. While these checklists complement each other, neither list is definitive. My hope is that the examples will inspire you to reflect on what you may be experiencing. I also invite you to modify any of the suggestions and create personal and enduring strategies that you can rely on when needed.
