WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY…

Pamela was an extraordinary help & support during my career progression. She is not just a careers counsellor but also a genuine, honest & caring individual who shows support no matter what season of life you're in. I would recommend her services to schools, parents or individuals who aspire for more in their careers & personal life journey.- Shane – adult client
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you. Your commitment, expertise and wonderful advice has been greatly valued. I look forward to the continuing relationship.- Maree – school coordinator
My experience with Mrs Ledley was that of both an advisor and a friend. Mrs Ledley took the time to understand who I am as an individual and what I can achieve and from there recommended careers where she believed that I would flourish within. She also informed me of open days and other open university events, such as Macquarie in a day, that i would have never known about previously further allowing me to get a feel for what I would like to make of my life after school. I am highly grateful to Mrs Ledley for all the help she has provided me.- Samuel – year 12 student
