What clients, trainees, workshop participants and CareerBuzz listeners have to say…

We appreciate and are proud of the positive feedback from individual clients, organizational clients, trainees and workshop participants over the past 10+ years. Thank you all!

Individual Clients Speak…

“I am very thankful for all the work that I did with you. You really listened to me and offered a lot of invaluable advice. The career statement I put together with your help was the first time I ever stepped back and reflected on the past 20 years to create what I want for the next 20 years. All in all, the work I did with you helped me build so much courage and confidence in myself that I lacked before.” -E.J. (Jayne’s client)

“Pat’s positive outlook and gentle approach were a big inspiration and support through a tough time in my career and life. With her help, I realized that my options are not nearly as limited as I thought and that my career and life goals are achievable. Pat encouraged me to be more mindful, be gentle with myself, and to start to build my life around the things that matter most to me. Thanks!” ~R.B. (Pat’s client)

“Fantastic. Very professional and excellent to work with. It was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. It was really a pleasure to work with Jayne. It got me through a tough time and gave me great new skills moving forward.” ~Diane Rutherford

“Pat’s fantastic.  She’s creative, perceptive and seemed to know just when and how to challenge me.  The CareerCycles Process is a great process I highly recommend it to anyone making a career change.  I’m trusting my gut and following my passion, Pat’s support has been pivotal in me making this happen.”   J.D.

“After working with Pat, I have clear professional direction and practical tools to follow through.  Thanks!”  D.G.

“Your methodology provides so much encouragement, as well as clarity of self and circumstances, that it becomes impossible not to take action. I am very grateful for your assistance in my time of need.” -Rui Umezawa

“I’ve been meaning to write you to tell you how grateful I am for your career counselling, it really helped me approach my career in a whole new way and the tools you provided me in determining my skills, talents, etc. have definitely helped me when contemplating any career change. Thanks again for all your help, you really helped me in refocussing my life and career.” ~Sonia Pettrica (Mark’s client)

“Pat, I deeply appreciate both the accountability and trust that you have helped me nurture in myself, as well how earnestly you have reflected aloud what I have been saying inside. Thank you.” ~Marc Tellez (Pat’s client)

“It was really great working with Alishia. When I started our work together I felt scattered and unsuccessful compared to my peers. In 5 short sessions I achieved my original goal of becoming an internally directed career professional. I never imagined I could figure out what my career goals were but in 5 sessions I narrowed my field down to a single career direction that I’m currently pursuing with enthsiasm. I feel empowered, centred and focused in under 3 months! Alishia was amazing at figuring out what was really going on with me at a deeper level and gently guiding me back to what I truly needed to focus on in that moment. Today I’m on the right track, trusting my own internal guidance systems and valuing myself as an emerging career professional. Thank you Alishia for being amazing at what you do and being such a genuine caring person!” ~Hilary (Alishia’s client)

“Good news! I’ve just accepted 3-month contract work in Belgium as a Design Project Engineer. I’ll work on a proposal for two 1300 ton/day oxygen plants in Russia. It is an exciting and challenging opportunity for me. Thanks once again for your assistance in starting me up on my career transition.” ~Tom Siklos,P.Eng.,PMP

Organizational Clients Speak…

“Thank you for facilitating a successful career-focused session for CHS staff. ~Dale Nicholson, Director, Canadian Hydrographic Service

“Thank you very much for being part of our Career Convergence this morning; you have so much to offer on a number of levels! I enjoyed the interview and would love to have heard more! The evaluations were very positive and showed that “who you are matters” particularly resonated with many people.” –Teresa Scannell, Career and Work-Life Consultant, Organizational Development and Learning Centre, University of Toronto

“Wow! What a great presentation last night! ‘Who You Are MATTERS!’ was a huge success. On behalf of Youth in Motion, thank you! Thanks to your presentation, these young ladies all left the session with a better sense of who they are, what they want, and how they will acheive their goals.” -Akela Peoples, CoFounder, President and CEO of Youth in Motion

“I congratulate the Professional Development Committee members of NED Alumni Canada for organizing a successful seminar on Effective Strategies for Engineers. The presentation made by Mark Franklin was simply marvellous. The discussion that took place, in which the participants expressed their views and experiences was really interesting and enlightening. Mark Franklin very successfully included everyone in the discussion rather than kept speaking by himself, which as a result created much interest among the participants. –NED Alumni Canada

Trainees in the CareerCycles Method of Practice Speak…

“My practice with my institution’s students and alumni has benefited from your very comprehensive approach. Thanks for the great experience in the HNCP training.” -Alan Jones, Career Counselor, Northeastern Illinois University

“I was drawn to this model when I first saw it presented. It pulls together the best parts of career counselling and career exploration.” –Kathie Lamie,MSW, Personal Development and Career Consultant

“Talk about serendipity and timing! I was looking for a new way to work with clients, especially with undergraduates who are asking the big career questions, beyond assessments. The CareerCycles Method of Practice provides me with that approach, and allows me to be more authentic and real with clients. What I’ve seen is clients becoming clear about their choices. One aspect of the method of practice that excites me is the potential to case conference with colleagues using consistent language.” –Penny Freno, Counsellor, Simon Fraser University

“I have really enjoyed using the CareerCycles interventions and method and feel that clients are responding well to them. I find that the model and interventions are particularly great at getting clients to buy in right from the start and at encouraging their involvement, which is so empowering and crucial for positive change! I’m excited to continue to apply them and to witness their impact on clients’ journeys through transition and change. -Geneviève Beaupré,M.Ed. Counsellor, George Brown College

“Great resources, structure for program, well laid out, great facilitator, pacing, presentation & knowledge. I like how it is a continuing evolving model. Thanks! I came into the training with some ambivalence as I have been bored with career counselling. I leave with a sense of purpose and excitement, feeling/believing I can offer my clients something of value. With practice, I think I will be a much better career counsellor and coach.” –Robyn Rushford, Kwantlen University

Workshop and Speaking Engagement Participants Speak…

“Thank you very much for presenting at our American Marketing Association-York University Chapter event. We had really good feedback from the audience. The way you challenged us was very successful and it encouraged participants to take a non-traditional approach to exploring their career options.” -Ameet Hurry, President, AMA @ YorkU

“I hoped to gain concrete ideas of how to leverage outdoor activities to facilitate career change. I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and I am very anxious to start leveraging some of your ideas to facilitate my clients to think ‘outside the box’ about career change.” –Neally Thompson, John Howard Society

“What I liked most were the stories as well as the idea that environment and
activities can inspire change and dreaming.” -Marion Lajoie, School of Management, University of Ottawa

“Enjoyed every second! I liked the can-do attitude! If you can dream it, you can do it! Thank you.” –Judith MacKinnon, Sheridan College

Career Buzz Listeners Speak…

“I think your radio shows are awesome! I love listening to your interviews and am impressed by how you can consistently come up with great interviewees and topics.” –Teresa

“This subject is arguably one of the most important and least examined aspects of a persons life, and particularly in the early adult years it often is a major life decision, sometimes “the” turning point in your life. Everyone concerned with what they are doing and where they are going -and who isn’t ?- should tune in to your show” -Craig Baxter

“I’ve got a pretty steady job now, but before I did, I used to listen to your program every week, no joke. It was really inspiring to hear other people’s career stories and made me feel more upbeat and positive when I was looking for meaningful employment.” -Tovi Heilbronn

“I listened to your show last Friday for the first time and thought that it was very industry-specific! Your guests Sue and Phil were great contributors and your facilitation not only encouraged them to speak but it also brought out additional information. Your show was timely for me, informative and certainly enjoyable!” -Mohamed Hanif
