Career Counselling Testimonials

Dear Helene,

My son Taylor needed a direction and goal to work for in the HSC and after a few short hours you had given him everything he required. You managed to understand his personality, and developed a great relationship with him in such a short time. From this you were able to guide him to careers he felt comfortable and passionate about. This was invaluable as it gave him the motivation to work harder to achieve the ATAR scores required.

I was also so grateful for your help and guidance in applying for scholarships as this was completely alien to me, and after your help we were confident that this was applied for to the best of our ability.

So thanks so much Helene, if there is anyone requiring a referral I would be only too happy to recommend you.

Hi Helene,
Just wanted to let you know that Dan has commenced an online course which will allow him to achieve his Cert lll and Cert lV in personal training by the end of the year.  He is really excited about it and working hard on it already. Thank you so much for your input, the timing was great and Dan found it very helpful. Dan enthused about his meeting with you to his friends and consequently his mate David should be giving you a call very soon. This had been a real turning point for Dan.


Hi Helene,

Helene, thank you so much for your help with my niece. Your professional approach yet open, relaxed and confident disposition allowed her to ask questions and feel relaxed about a system that she is only starting to understand. Thank you for your meaningful contribution and insight.
