Interview Preparation: Are you looking for a new job? Are you returning to the workforce after a period or absence e.g, caring for children or after an injury? Or are you putting off looking, because you are terrified of interviews?

Interview anxiety can prevent you from taking the next step in your career. It can also cause you to stay in a job that you are not happy with, further dwindling your self-esteem and in some cases even leading to depression.

A Psychologist can help you to learn strategies to assist with managing anxiety during interviews.

Counselling Approach: Nicole has a relaxed and engaging approach to therapy, and draws on a variety of evidence-based approaches to individually tailor a plan to suit each client. Her therapeutic orientation is a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).

Interview Preparation – Helen D’Silva

Helen D’Silva       Quals: MA of Psychology (Sport & Exercise), Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, Certificate IV in Small Business Management                                

Interview Preparation and Coaching: It is easy to write down the questions one might want to explore and know the answers to regarding an individual an employer may be considering to join their business. However, how do you know your potential new employee is telling the truth?  The greatest cost of running a business is the cost of having staff, so it’s crucial for business owners to ensure they are making the right decision for the cost of making a bad hiring decision can be up to five times the salary of the role you are recruiting for! No business should ever be needing to afford that.

It therefore makes sense to ensure your interview process is well-organised, targeted, does not just rely on a face-to-face interview, engages activities that allow the potential employee to demonstrate their skills and competency and determines whether or not that person will be a personality fit for the role, the team and your type of business.

Counselling Approach: With over 7 years consulting, coaching and training Australian business owners to adopt their own in-house tools, systems and processes, Helen has saved businesses thousands of dollars in recruitment agency fees. Helen helps businesses develop and use initial screening tools, interview processes, exercises and behavioural questioning techniques, assess culture and personality fit to the opportunity. Having a performed a variety of psychometric evaluations including the well-known MBTI and McQuaig, Helen looks to educate businesses on the right choice of psychometric evaluations. She believes in empowering businesses to become masters of recruiting their own people and works with businesses to apply organisational psychology strategies to recruit, retain (the right people!) and effectively reward staff for the overall betterment of the business.

Fees:  Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $220 for initial appointment, $180 thereafter. Medicare and health rebates may apply.

Availability: Usually within a week.

Interview Preparation: Job related interviews can be the source of tremendous stress and anxiety for many people.  Not only is this experience distressing, it can also fundamentally impede your ability to accurately demonstrate your suitability for the position you have applied for.  Sweaty armpits, trembling hands, upset stomach – and then for your trouble you are potentially overlooked for a role you would be perfect for and perhaps really needed…

When interview related distress poses this kind of a barrier to promotion / job change / or return to paid work – the psychological impact on individuals can become negatively spiraling.  It also means that employers can be missing out on the best people for their organisation…
