“The session with Patrick gave myself and my daughter with a sense of clarity around the subjects she will take for her leaving certificate, and her potential 3rd level choices. We now also have a good understanding of the CAO process and have a strategy to employ when she begins her CAO application.”

“Dear Patrick

Thanks so much for the session today with Orla.

We found that all parts were very useful, from the initial meeting on zoom, through the questionnaire, the psychometric test, and the meeting today to look through the results and look at options.

The test was very accurate in assessing Orla’s strengths and personality traits, as well as areas she finds more challenging. She found it very useful in reaffirming her choices and in helping her decide what order she will put them in.

We both found you very engaging and genuinely interested. I would have loved to have had this process for myself back in the day!

I would highly recommend your guidance service to any secondary school student looking at options for the future.

Thanks again

“I found my conversations with Patrick very helpful in terms of making my mind clearer about what I actually want to do when I finish school.

The psychometric test provided me with an interesting insight into what type of work environment would suit me best, as well as a greater understanding of my potential strengths and weaknesses in a work environment.

Overall, I have enjoyed the process.

Thanks again Patrick.

Tabhair aire,”

“We had consulted Patrick about the Irish college admission process for our son who is sitting for his Leaving Cert this year. As Indian expats, we knew very little about this process in Ireland. Patrick was both empathetic and professional at once and helped us with all aspects of this process from making career choices based on a personality assessment and doing research for particular questions we had asked, to the nuances of applying to particular colleges in Dublin. In the process, he also shed light on many aspects which we were previously unaware of. Overall we were able to complete the CAO process very smoothly. As expats going through this for the first time, we can fully recommend his services for career guidance.”

“Thanks: Our daughter is feeling much more relaxed and in control of the choices she will be making on her CAO application. We couldn’t recommend Patrick enough, his expertise was invaluable to us.”

“My daughter attended Patrick of Career Insights for guidance during Transition Year when considering her subjects for Leaving Certificate with regard to choice of career. The extent of Patrick’s preparation for the session was clear from the outset and he carefully analysed and discussed her strengths and interests. He provided clarity for her on career areas that best suited her personality and ambitions. Patrick also guided us through the entry requirements for the various colleges and the CAO and UCAS application process. The entire session was very informative and enjoyable. As a result my daughter has a much clearer outlook in respect of her future endeavours and choices and is more content moving forward into the Senior Cycle next year. I could not recommend this service more highly.”

“Patrick helped our son change how he was approaching his studies, which has really helped him. He was also able to highlight different pathways for college which reduced our stress level!”
