Here is what one young College graduate had to say:

‘I now have my new job of choice’

Fidelma was instrumental in helping me gain full-time employment after completing my degree in Product Design (UL). Through her interview preparation and extensive network of contacts, her willingness to recommend me to potential employers and employment agencies, she provided me with some valuable opportunities.Her continuous support and encouragement thereafter gave me the confidence to succeed and get employed in a fantastic company in the medical device sector which was my ideal choice.

Marcus, Galway, College Graduate

Likewise with new immigrant to Ireland, Juan Navarro:

‘I was employed in 8 days after working with her’

Being coached by Dr. Fidelma Healy was an honour. She not only helped me with finding a great job, she also instructed me throughout the process and taught me what real confidence is. I was new to Ireland. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be employed in just 8 days! 

Juan Navarro, Galway

After a setback or career disappointment, some people feel doomed. This need not be the case -

Job loss: ‘I got the help I needed to re-build my confidence and apply again’

I lost my job quite unexpectedly and it shook me to the core. I began to doubt my every move. I couldn't handle rejection at all. I met Fidelma at a course and she told me how coaching had helped her following a career transition. Having completed some psychometric tests, I was relieved to read the reports that clearly recognised my strengths. I could see that I still had very definite strengths but that I needed help to re-build my self-esteem. The whole experience helped my greatly. It gave me the courage to apply again. I would recommend Fidelma's analysis and guidance.

Switching on for Learning is an ideal text to prepare Senior Cycle students for Exams

I have used Dr. Fidelma Healy's "Switching on for Learning" book with Fifth and Sixth Year students as a basis for dealing with study skills and exam preparation in class groups. The book is very comprehensive and provides enough material for the guidance counsellor or teacher to dip in and choose appropriate strategies for different groups of students, depending on what they need. There is enough in the book for a full term's worth of study-skills classes and no need to prepare powerpoints or use a computer room. I can recommend it highly.

I got the help I need to re-build my confidence and realise my value

I lost my job quite unexpectedly and it shook me to the core. I began to doubt my every move. I couldn't handle rejection at all. I met Fidelma at a course and she told me how coaching had helped her following a career transition. Having completed a series of psychometric tests, I could see that I still had very definite strengths but that I needed help to re-build my self-esteem. I was relieved to read the reports that clearly recognisedmy strengths. The whole experience helped my greatly. I would recommend Fidelma's analysis and guidance.

Parents

As parents our intention is to give our children "roots" and give them "wings". Strong roots to help them believe in themselves and to give them a good start in life. Wings to help them set out on their own and become independent.


This journey is not always plain sailing for every child or young person. Some benefit from individual help from time to time. Study & Careers believes in the innate talent and uniqueness of every child. It knows that timely help can enable your learner to overcome challenges they face along the way. To do so, it offers courses for you the parent and one-to-one private consultations to support your student.
