Advice and support at the right time was essential for our son

My son went to see Dr. Healy having dropped out of NUIG half way through his first year. He had made a poor course choice and very soon dropped behind. It hit his confidence hard. Fidelma worked with him over a series of sessions and carried out some tests that helped him look at his motivation and personality. He needed help with anxiety too. He got some good guidance and it made him feel good about himself again. He is now half way through a new course and is much more confident. Advice and support at the right time made all the difference.

We are overwhelmed and grateful for your input into our son’s future

I want to thank you for meeting our son. You were so open and welcoming to Traolach on our arrival which relaxed him and allowed him to fully engage with you. As you know he was in a bad place at the time but thanks to your empathy and enthusiasm he has made huge progress and continues each day. You gave Traolach an opportunity to explore his position in an informed environment. You were so well prepared for the meeting which allowed you to draw out and inspire Traolach. Thanks to that meeting with you Fidelma he has achieved a full-time job as well as a place on a course in September 2020 if he wants it. He is so happy and upbeat, all thanks to your knowledge , experience and encouragement. As a family we are overwhelmed and grateful for your input into Traolach's future.We know that anyone given an opportunity to meet you will be confident and well informed as to what is available to them, allowing for their specific interests and ability. Thank you so much.

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.
