What is Specialist Vocational Interview and Coaching?

The psychologist will then assist the individual to make changes that address the obstacles. The coaching approach is particularly effective in moving people forward who have become stuck or had difficulty overcoming barriers. This time limited focused intervention has enabled such individuals to progress more rapidly into work.
The individual may have an idea of what they want to achieve but not know how to achieve it. This solution focussed process applies psychological approaches to help set clear vocational goals and identify exactly what the individual needs to build their motivation and effectiveness for work. They are supported to identify their strengths and to build resilience, confidence, emotional intelligence and ability to adapt and make changes to accommodate their health condition.
