More About Thomas!
Prior to becoming a Career Coach, I worked in various fields such as education, facilitation, manufacturing, fishing, pulp and paper, and the grain industry. This rich and diverse employment background has enabled me to assist the wide variety of clients who walk through my door.
One quality that differentiates me from other service providers is my in-depth coaching. Most employment agencies are forced to rush through clients in order to reach funding quotas. As a result, they only do a surface job. But not me. I believe that clients need a deeper understanding of themselves and their prospects in order to make wise career decisions. And that is what I deliver. Having earned an M.A. in Philosophy (’04), a Post-Graduate Certificate in Career Coaching (’13), and a Certificate in Personality Type Assessment (’13), I am uniquely equipped to assess people’s core values, interests, skills, and personality type so that they can confidently target the careers that are right for them.
Career Coaching has been an exciting journey. It has led me to numerous employment opportunities in educational settings such as the University of Guelph and Conestoga College. But without a doubt, the most exciting chapter in this journey has been owning and managing my own coaching business!
As a business owner in Guelph, Ontario, I bring 10+ years of combined teaching, facilitating, and coaching experience to the clients I meet with. Whether they want to change careers, explore future options, or receive training for their job search, my commitment to them remains the same: to equip them for rewarding career journeys. And that is my commitment to you!
