Integrative Career Counseling

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

    I assist my clients to:

    • 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, on your relationships, 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 co-create customized approaches to work and career.

    We have a life-long relationship with work and career. As such, my aim is to help you continue to move forward in your life with greater awareness, insight and perspective, and that our work will enable you to continually combine what is possible with personally meaningful decisions and actions.

    To book a 25 minute consultation call 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.

    I hear this question frequently when clients contact me. This question is often accompanied by the belief that everyone else seems to know exactly what they want to do, that they have taken all the right steps and have chosen "wisely" in terms of career.

  • When Are Career Transitions Necessary?

    06/17/2021

    Many clients who contact me want a listening ear as they talk through the subject of career transition. They seek perspective on whether a change in job or profession may indeed be necessary.

    I am an enthusiastic supporter of the Discover Year program and the young adults who participate in it. I could not resist doing another interview with a recent grad of the program. Ana Alves traveled from Portugal to join the gap year program located here in Ottawa. I hope you are uplifted by her positive and thoughtful answers, along with her excitement for the journey ahead.
