Career Counseling

Each individual is unique and special in their own right. Therefore choosing a career that is right for them is an individual process. It can often be confusing because of all of the information floating all around. 

Young people often feel confused about which field to choose after grade 10 or 12. Some feel dissatisfied with their choices and want to make sure that the chosen path is the correct one. While, yet others want to change the field midway. Either way, young students and adults need help when it comes to choosing the right career.

Career Counselling helps in the proper choice of career and minimizes the mismatch between aptitude and employment.

Why Career Counselling is important?

Most people spend a third of their lives at work, however over 50% report unhappiness or dissatisfaction on some level. This can lead to issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, etc. Therefore in order to have a happy and fulfilling life one must choose a career that is rewarding in every sense. This decision and choice can be daunting and therefore comes in the role of career counseling and a counselor.

Career counseling helps people assess their skills, needs, and desires in order to find a career that works for them. It eliminates doubt and fear because an expert has guided you through the various steps with the use of scientific tools and psychometric analysis.

Some of the following questions may be helpful for narrowing your choices when choosing a career:-

  • What do I enjoy doing?
  • What kinds of activities are fun and fulfilling for me?
  • What am I good at?
  • What is my skill set?
  • What qualifications do I have, such as a degree or experience?
  • How much money do I need to make to feel satisfied?
  • What jobs are available in the place(s) I’d like to live?
  • Do I want to travel?
  • What are my values?
  • Is it important to me to be of service to others?
  • Am I looking for intensely challenging work or something relatively easy?
  • Am I willing to do what others tell me without question, or would I rather make most decisions on my own?
  • To what degree do I need stability and security?

Individual Psychotherapy

Individual therapy is useful for many types of situations that cause stress, anger, grief or conflict. In a comfortable, private setting, an individual and a therapist will explore many different important issues, including (but not limited to):

  • Expression of thoughts and emotions
  • Behavior patterns
  • Problem solving
  • Conflict resolution
  • Strengths and weaknesses

Individual therapy may be short-term (focusing on immediate issues) or long-term (delving into more complex problems). The number of sessions and the frequency of appointments depends on the individual’s situation and the recommendations of the therapist.

Even if therapy cannot cure a condition, it can help people develop healthy coping skills. Determination to be active in therapy and healing is essential for meeting therapeutic goals and fostering a positive therapeutic relationship.

When a person in therapy is open and honest, therapists generally are better able to address each issue and adjust the treatment approach as needed. Going to therapy might feel difficult on some days. But, it is important to attend each session and complete any homework assigned. Being patient and sticking to the treatment plan can facilitate long-term success in therapy. 


Individual therapy is an effective treatment for many types of mental, emotional and behavioral health issues. But, it can also help people who are facing difficult life situations, or would like to develop healthier, more functional personal habits.

Therapy sessions can provide these seven types of benefits and more:

  1. Adding to your support network
  2. Gaining a better understanding of yourself
  3. Learning how to handle emotions
  4. Identifying underlying causes of symptoms
  5. Providing coping strategies
  6. Managing symptoms
  7. Facilitating lifestyle changes

Whatever your issues may be, therapy can be a life-changing experience. Dr Sheetal Sharma provides mental and behavioral health services for individuals that work to improve overall wellness.
