I found the career counselling session extremely helpful and have had great success in my career path since. I have enrolled to do a Masters in Human Resource Management at Monash, which starts in a few weeks. I have also started working in an HR Assistant role. I love my new job and am really excited about starting my course. It's great to finally have some direction in my career. I would strongly recommend a career counsellor to anyone who is unsure of what they want to do.

I was searching for words that could describe my happiness about your service and how confident I became when I knew exactly what I should do in the next 5-10 years of my life. I know what to do now and which companies to consider when searching for my dream job that fits my personality along with the workplace that is the best fit for me. The career personality report was amazing and the interview was very helpful and I am ready now to move forward. Overall the experience was wonderful.
Thank you for our consultation on Monday, it was FANTASTIC. I really loved hearing your feedback and exploring the issues and all the advice. I have already made comments to friends that you were excellent and very knowledgeable and personable. I would definitely tell my friends or colleagues to book an appointment with you.
Thank you so much for your help and career guidance. You have completely changed my life. Without your knowledge and advice I would have been changing jobs every couple of years and never finding any career that I truly had a passion for. Thank you so much again.
I spoke with Elise after our session with you and she is feeling a lot more settled about her career path now. It's a very difficult thing to work through especially at 14 but I really think you nailed it on the head. It's great to put her mind at ease regarding her next steps, now she can put that energy into actually moving forward. Thanks again for your insights.
Both my father and I greatly appreciate the help you have given me and I thank you for the follow up information. Thank you for your career guidance and I will not hesitate to contact you in the future or refer you to anyone I come across.
Just thought I'd let you know that I got a new job today at company X. Thanks for all your help and guidance, it was a huge help. Thanks also to Victoria for my resume - it came up really well and certainly made a big difference. Thanks again,
Thank you again for all your career help and guidance. When I came to see you I couldn't make up my mind on anything. Now if you asked me how satisfied I was with the direction I was heading with my career choice, it would be 10/10.
“I recently had a consultation with Diana Lim in Melbourne and I thoroughly enjoyed this session. I went into the session feeling a little overwhelmed about my career options and preferences and Diana was fantastic in helping me to develop more clarity around these. The session was well organised, thorough and the additional follow-up after the session helped to consolidate everything we had discussed during the session.”
Thank you so much for meeting with me - I thoroughly enjoyed it and found the session invaluable!! I cannot believe I haven't done this sooner! I feel I have so many more exciting options open to me now and I cannot wait to explore them and get going on my next adventure! I will certainly recommend your services for anyone who would like some direction and clarity around their career development.
Thanks for the career coaching session. I'm looking forward to following my path. I know I'm on the right one finally. Thank you and Katie for this wonderful service. Sometimes we all need a little direction in life.
I'm really happy to have met with you and have talked through my options with you. Thanks for your career advice! I think I would have remained in an unhappy environment for longer had I not seen you. Thanks again.
"From the moment I spoke to Leah on the phone, I felt comfortable. Leah has a beautiful nature and really loves what she does. She cares about her clients and makes them feel confident and relaxed in what can be a daunting situation. She helped me clarify my future opportunities and see things in a positive light! I would highly recommend seeing Leah."
After the session, I felt energised and confident that there were career choices out there for me that would suit much more than my current role – a relief in itself. Most helpful was the personality testing and the way you saw things that I never would have been able to myself, by smoothly joining the two and breaking it down with such ease into real possibilities. Worth its weight in gold.
Just a quick one to let you know I had some success with my resume and picked up a full time plant operator position with Company X and will be able to start Cert. III in building and construction. The first thing the interviewer commented on was how professional my resume looked! I ended up applying for 5 jobs and have heard back from 4 about an interview. So thanks again for helping me out and I wish you all the best.
Thank you for your help with my career planning and updating my resume. I really appreciate your input and advice not only about the career choices, but also about how to effectively seek opportunities and make good use of my resources. Thanks again.
“I worked with Judith to identify and appraise my transferable skills with a change of role and industry in mind. Options were limited in my professional field at the time, due mainly to an industry-wide slowdown. I felt that my skills portfolio could be of value to other roles and industries but needed professional help to clearly identify what other options might be available to me. Judith was extremely helpful and insightful. She worked closely with me to appraise my interests, prior work history and future expectations regarding salary and prospects for professional advancement. Judith alerted me to several professional possibilities that I hadn't thought of and helped me to understand how my skills and experience could transfer to these roles. Overall, her input was extremely focused, helpful and professional. I would gladly recommend Judith to other professionals seeking clear input on their career progression or guidance on alternative employment options.”
“Leah is one of the most positive and motivating individuals I have ever worked with. Leah helps you to understand your career path and aspirations and then works with you to determine the areas of change needed. I would highly recommend a career consultation with Leah.”
Thank you for the session yesterday. It was exactly what I needed and I’m about to embark on a career for the very first time in my life. I’m excited and ready for it. You’re a great listener and you gave me some really good suggestions, advice and feedback. You’re professional approach was spot on and you even kept me ‘on topic’ AND finished on time. I feel like I’m on track now.
“I would like to take this opportunity to enthusiastically endorse Judith Uhlman as an executive career coach. Judith helped me clarify my career direction and identify ways to help me develop my own business. She offered effective strategies, and more importantly, new perspectives and insights about future employment opportunities. I came away with a treasure trove of resources. As a result, I feel more optimistic and excited about my career possibilities.”
I have been raving all week to friends and family about the amazing and thorough work you did on Friday. I drove home simply smiling and felt so happy. I have never met someone so thorough in their work and someone who simply loves her job and is truly meant to help people. The choice to come see you was one of the best I have ever made and it truly helped me get to the heart of it all, and see what has been right in from of me career-wise all along. I can’t thank you enough for all the help you have given me.
"Before I saw Drew I was rather lost and unmotivated in where my career was heading. Drew suggested I consider completing tertiary studies. This was about 6 years ago and I am certain that this was absolutely the correct decision. The biggest lesson I learned through my studies was the actual 'pursuit' of the goal. Drew was direct, motivating and approachable. Thank you."
After a couple weeks of research into different careers I narrowed down my choice to one. I have decided to go back to university next year to study Human Resource Management. Having the information about my personality and also some future careers made my searching a lot easier as I was able to really focus on my strengths. Using the reports I was easily able to narrow down my choices in a future career. Again I would like to thank you for the meeting as I found it to be very helpful for my future.
I just wanted to sincerely thank you for your coaching, it really helped me and completely changed my life for the better. I now love my life because I'm not dreading each and every day!
To Katie Roberts & Co.,
I would like to thank and acknowledge the wonderful service provided by Diana Lim. Diana is extremely thorough in her knowledge of career building and has been very understanding of why I am trying to reach for certain goals. Furthermore, I was even more impressed when I received follow up information (tailored to my specific goals) and words of encouragement to keep moving forward in what I have set out to achieve. I highly recommend Diana's services to anyone who is looking for a career transition, or who is unsure of their current career.
I can't thank you enough for the guidance you gave me last month during our meeting. It gave me the motivation to get out there and put my skills and experience on show and see how far it can take me. To my surprise the feedback has been very positive. To the extent where some of the biggest and more reputable firms in the industry are showing very strong interest.
The session was extremely useful and definitely helped with narrowing down what I need to do to be happier with my work life. I've looked into going back to studying teaching and decided this is what I want to do. Although it was only a couple of hours, you've made a huge impact on how I look at my work life and my husband has already commented that I seem a lot happier.
Thank you very much for your assistance and advice. It was useful to spend the time with you focussing just on me and my needs. It is something that I haven’t done for a long time, and made me realise how important it is to stop and reflect, not only on the job but on other areas of life.
Just a quick note to let you know I got another role at a different company, and I couldn't have done it without your help. I will be a Project Coordinator at company X. Your confidence in me led to me going for contract roles, which this one is, with the likelihood to go permanent after 12 months. I cannot sing your praises enough to my friends and colleagues.
"The career counselling session I had with Judith was incredibly informative and enlightening. Judith was great at understanding my career wants and needs and was also able to deliver realistic options based on our discussions and my career profiling assessments. I walked away from the session with a better understanding of what I'm looking for from a long term career, the types of careers more suited to my personality and with a realistic action plan to get a career change on track."
Thank you for our coaching session and follow up resources. As a result of your assistance I was able to break down, assess and confidently decide on my future career direction, resulting in my acceptance this week into the UWA Full Time MBA, coupled with the early stages of setting up a promising business with a trusted colleague. These two opportunities are incredibly exciting and I am thrilled to be on this new path. Your coaching and counselling was essential in this process, and I utilised all of your unbiased advice, processes and tools to make a clear and confident set of decisions. I thank you greatly for your help.
Just wanted to thank you for the session last night. I'm very happy with the feedback and guidance you provided and I'm confident that I'll be able to steer in the right direction. Thanks again.
"I have been working with the same firm for 23 years, working my way up into management from an entry level role. Recently I decided it was time for a change. Diana has been instrumental in preparing me for this change, with resume preparation, my questions around age and further education in the job market, and making better use of my LinkedIn profile. The most empowering part of our sessions was the way Diana tailored the sessions specifically to my needs and gave me confidence around interview questions as well as preparing for interviews. I feel confident in applying for roles outside of my current firm now, and my fears are all dealt with. I highly recommend Diana for her support, insight, knowledge and empathy."
After thirty years in the same profession, I am seeking a career change but was unsure of exactly what I wanted and could do. Attending coaching with Judith has provided insight, guidance and clarity. Her discernment and constructive feedback have assisted me to recognise and hold confidence in my expertise, skill set and potential. I feel validated and empowered to pursue that next big step. Thank you so much, Judith!
I had a career counselling session on Friday with Diana Lim which was fantastic. Diana helped me to establish some short and long term career goals which I can begin working towards. I really appreciated her time and expertise. Thank you Diana!
"I booked a consultation with Susie as I had been unhappy in my work and studies for years and felt I would benefit from some professional guidance. Susie helped me to gain a better understanding of my personality traits and strengths which was invaluable as it helped me identify the reasons why I had not thrived in or enjoyed my previous jobs. With Susie’s extensive knowledge and wisdom I was able to explore a number of career options that were much better suited to my interests and needs. She also gave me a wealth of resources to help me explore the possible pathways I could take to achieve my goals. Susie was extremely friendly, honest, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking guidance in relation to careers and vocational or tertiary courses."
"I was very happy with the Katie Roberts career counselling service and in particular, with Judith Uhlmann. Judith was very easy to talk to and made my husband and I feel relaxed and comfortable throughout our session. She was highly organised, professional, and resourceful and helped me to identify new career paths that would suit my interests, personality and strengths. I went into the session feeling quite lost and hopeless, but left feeling very positive and optimistic about different career paths that I might be able pursue. I have since enrolled into a Diploma of Nursing and am very much enjoying it. I look forward to completing the course and starting a new career. Thank you Judith!"
"Being nearly 50 and in the same career for all my life I was wanting to look at my career path holistically, as if starting from scratch. Taking the personality and career profile was very simple and the end results at my meeting with Career Consultant Susie were thorough and insightful. From these results Susie had completed research of possible directions for me to further consider. Although hesitant to take that first step I found Susie very knowledgeable in possible career paths and the whole experience was invaluable.”
Shane, Central Coast
Diana was amazing and highly knowledgeable. I am really happy with the outcome of my session as I have now made a firm, clear and I believe the best decision of what my career goals are for the next 5 to 10 years. I no longer feel anxious and unsure about retraining which is great. Thank you so much, it was an invaluable session.
Good afternoon Karen,
Prior to our session, I was feeling overwhelmed with various thoughts and ideas on possible career pathways. For quite a few months I was determined to try and work it all out by doing my own research. While I did gain new knowledge along the way, it did all start to snowball in head. Naturally it came to a point where I felt professional guidance would be highly beneficial. After our session, I felt relieved and invigorated. I was relieved because the confusion I had going into the session was gone. I was invigorated because you helped me discover pathways that were very much in alignment with my personality/attitude, work values, needs etc. I loved how you were able to unpack every part of me personally and professionally, lay it out on paper (in a clear and methodical way), and then collaborate with me to narrow it all down to the specifics. I particularly liked how you encouraged me to discuss how I related to each finding from the report. And finally, your follow up email was fantastic because all the sources I needed were in one place, and it outlined the real actions I need to take.
In previous years I have been involved in other career services. In comparison, your service was the most professional and of a very high standard. I left our consultation feeling fulfilled. If I ever feel I need more information or guidance, that comes down to the fact that I’ve discovered new ideas/concepts in my own follow up research (not due to a lack of guidance in the first consultation). I would recommend career coaching to anyone…even for those who feel secure in their current roles. I would tell people it is a great way to learn more about who you are at your core, how that translates to the workplace and what that means for you. I have already recommended your services to a friend of mine...
"Meeting and discussing career options with Judith has been one of the most valuable experiences I’ve had in my life. When my son is considering career options later in life I’m going to advise him to go through the same process as I did to ensure he chooses a career that he is passionate about and works well with his personality traits. Through the personality testing we were able to identify what was important to me. We discussed career options that were achievable and attainable and set out a plan on how to achieve them. I couldn’t be more happy with my new career direction. I learned through my discussions with Judith that finding a career that worked well with my personality was of utmost importance to me. I would definitely recommend Judith to anyone who is looking for a change in their career."
Your help and reassurance was incredible. I am still in awe of that meeting. I hope you don’t mind, but I have shared this experience with a few people who have been in the same boat as I was. For the first time in my life, I feel what I am doing and going and creating, doesn’t feel like work... and that’s a great feeling.
"Diana was fantastic and provided so much detail regarding job searching in my field. She opened my eyes to websites, job search strategies and connections that I would not otherwise know existed. The job search strategy document provided post conversation is extensive and my resume and cover letters have never looked better. I would definitely recommend Diana’s services to others."
"I wanted to express my thanks for the career advice provided by Diana recently. Diana was able to step through the many elements of job search in a logical, thoughtful way, from discussing what types of jobs I wanted, to how to get the best ‘bang for buck’ in applications, though an improved LinkedIn profile, and a clearer cover letter and resume. Great, practical advice for me to step up my job search activity with added confidence."
