Our Work Rehabilitation Counsellors and Registered Psychologists are highly skilled in providing vocational and career change counselling and services to people following an injury, to assist with identifying suitable new employment pathways which align to individual strengths, motivations, values and interests.
We analyse job skills which are transferable to real employment opportunities, and facilitate the transition from one workplace, and/or occupation, to another more suitable workplace, and/or occupation, following an injury or illness.
As part of this vocational evaluation, we also consider all aspects of physical, social and mental wellbeing.
Workcom’s experts focus on collaboration, transparency, client rapport building, and comprehensive strategy setting in order to grow trust and encourage a person’s commitment to working towards realistic return to work goals.
