Testimonials of career counselling sessions:

Mid career Professional:

She is really very friendly and has a good understanding of human psyche. She helped me out to be more clear with my choice of job profile and career path. She use the scientific tools and assessment methods to provide the detailed analysis report to understand ones own inner strength better. I will strongly recommend students and mid career professionals to consult her for their career choice if they found themselves confused and stuck.

A Graduate: 

"An excellent counsellor with a great understanding of how best to put you at ease. I had gotten a referral from a family friend and was apprehensive about participating in career counselling. Most free tests I'd done online never provided me much insight but Srividya did an excellent job of creating context around my results. She helped me understand myself better. It was like I had lost key pieces of a puzzle that I had been trying to solve and she just placed them back in my hand. It is my decision to do what I think is right with them, but without her help I'd continue to feel very confused and lost.Could not recommend her more!"

A Grade XII student:

She really helped me out to be more clear with my choices and the counselling session really proved to be very beneficial. I would recommend it to all the students who want to take a more informed decision about their career choices.

A Grade VIII student:

Heard about srividya from my sons school. Was a little apprehensive how she would be as a councillor. Though it was a little early decision but thought of giving a try. Was really happy after the session because she suggested the path which my son wanted ahead in life . She guided him at early stage . Would recommend her as a counsellor and a gem of a person .

1 . Opting a Career

  • Title : Choosing careers Post C0VID19
  • Key Words :
  • Description :


    Last week, I was in a career counselling session with an undergraduate. He was keen to figure out what to do next as jobs become scarce in the COVID-19 crisis. If he decided to study further, what should he study?

    Prior to COVID-19, a large part of my counselling sessions would focus on options that seem suitable and attempt to help the counselee understand the prospect better and make well-informed choices.

    Post COVID-19, a larger part of my counselling sessions focuses on increasing self-awareness. So, through the session, “I peel the onion called the occupational-self further”.

    Let’s say that my counselee was looking at hospitality as a professional option a few weeks back. Now, post the COVID-19 crisis this option no longer looks stable! So, if he sees himself as only a hospitality professional he is sure to feel overwhelmed and helpless.

    So, my counselee needs to change focus. He needs to answer the question which aspect of him makes him a good fit for hospitality? Here is where I start the dialog of “let’s peel the onion further”. Here are some likely attributes of hospitality professionals:

    • Love being with people
    • Have a great sense of aesthetics
    • Great interpersonal social skills
    • Don’t care much for maths sums etc.

    Now when my counselee sees the list above, he can potentially map it to new and emerging careers to see if he makes a good fit for other careers. Interpersonal and social skills can be applied to many careers and these are essential in the current and future world. So, he feels stronger as his strength comes from deeper self-awareness, not from environmental stability. The moment the environment becomes unstable, he knocks at his inner self to get answers. And that is true empowerment.

    And that’s why peeling the onion further can wipe your tears and make you smile! 😊 Career counselling based on an understanding of your inner-self is even more essential in post COVID-19 times. Just make sure you go to an experienced and qualified psychologist to get that understanding.
