REAL Career Guidance – Sallyann Alexander

Sallyann is an accredited professional Career Guidance Counsellor and a full member of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors. She also holds a Certificate of Competence in Psychometric Testing (Occupational Ability). She supports clients and groups from diverse backgrounds and in ever changing contexts. Her guidance approach is holistic in nature and encompasses personal, social, educational and career development which facilitates clients with decision making across the life span.

With over 20 years’ experience in a self-employed capacity and in public and private sector roles, Sallyann has a longstanding business background in people management, recruitment and professional development. Her guidance experience spans the community and voluntary sector as well as further and higher education settings. She is also a professionally trained Facilitator, Adult Educator, Literacy Tutor and former Board Member of Louth Meath Educational Training Board (LMETB).

Sallyann understands the significant barriers people can have in accessing employment and in navigating an increasingly precarious and ‘liquid’ employment landscape. She supports clients to reposition and re-enter employment, education and training. She also helps individuals to adequately prepare for a return to learning to ensure academic success.

Sallyann is passionate about wellness and addiction recovery. She trained as a Continuum Care Facilitator with Aiséiri and facilitated for Aware. Her ideology and approach to guidance practice is rooted in the principles of community development in terms of responding in a way which both empowers individuals and encourages them to take responsibility. This happens through a person-centred approach which at all times upholds dignity and respect.

Sallyann supports her clients to make constant, steady improvements in their lives through the setting of goals which are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound. These changes are more than just aspirational, they are tangible. Sallyann sees personal transformation as an ongoing journey. She is passionate about helping her clients to become the best version of themselves.
