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

    I assist my clients to:

    • successfully navigate career transitions 
    • build the foundations for a resilient career path
    • discover and integrate personal, life affirming solutions to stress and burnout
    • map out meaningful possibilities for retirement

    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.

    I guide my clients in integrating and harmonizing their inner and public lives. By reflecting on personal values and aligning these values with their career aspirations and innate capacities, clients discover possibilities for themselves. This reinvigorates their ability to move forward with concrete actions to ensure that the work they create and devote themselves to, the collaborations they seek out and engage in, and the contributions they make to their specific fields or communities are meaningful, fulfilling and authentic representations of who they are.

  • The Challenges of Accepting Burnout

    01/28/2020

    “I don’t do burnout”! I have heard this statement from clients more than once. 

    Acknowledging and accepting that we are experiencing burnout can be quite challenging.

    We all identify with certain narratives and expectations about work, career and our own professionalism. These narratives and expectations are personally created, culturally constructed and very often a blending of both.

    If we see ourselves, for example, as the professional who always goes above and beyond, the worker who willingly puts in hours of overtime, the colleague available to work 24/7, jumping to take on additional projects, the experience of burnout can often feel like a crisis of personal capacity and professional identity.
