Careers in Depth, previously known as the Tavistock Career & Educational Counselling (TCEC) service, was founded in 1952 by Harold Bridger and his associates. They pioneered the application of in depth psychology and organisational behaviour theory to business and career development. TCEC re-branded as Careers in Depth in 2003 and continues to operate as a not-for-profit entity helping to provide its unique bespoke and transformative services to those who need it.
Our history with the Tavistock Institute and mission has shaped the way that we work and given us the opportunity to engage with individuals of all ages, levels of seniority, career sectors and backgrounds and to apply our methodology to a wide range of career issues.
From creating and implementing career programmes at top universities like CASS Business School, Intl Hellenic University (IHU) to working with General Practitioners to prepare them for active retirement, consulting big companies on managing redundancy programs to working with the unemployed and school children, our career consultants thrive on the variety of the career dilemmas we encounter and on the opportunity to provide help where it is most needed.
Our clients, in turn, appreciate us for our professionalism, values, confidentiality and the in-depth way in which we approach each and every career issue - an approach rooted in the Tavistock tradition. Most of our clients leave our sessions with a tangible action plan underpinned by a better understanding of themselves and their relationship to the world of work, which is the greatest reward we can ask for.
We are a team of organisational and career consultants each of whom has more than 20 years’ experience in these fields. As a service Careers in Depth has been helping people find fulfilment and passion at work since 1952.
Our service was founded in 1952 as the Tavistock Career & Educational Consultation service (TCEC). Our founders, Harold Bridger and his associates, pioneered the application of psychological principles and organisational behaviour theory to business and career development. TCEC re-launched as Careers in Depth in 2003 and continues to operate as a not-for-profit entity helping to provide its unique bespoke and transformative services to those who need it.
Our consultants are all trained to work in-depth with both individuals and organisations and continue to develop the methodology created by the TCEC. In addition to this unifying approach each consultant draws from their own unique practice and specialisation, which helps to enrich the consultation process and allows us to tailor the service to the specific situation at hand.
Our backgrounds and expertise are very different but what unites us is our mission to bring about fulfilment and passion at work to our clients and to provide these services to those who need it at an affordable cost.
See below for some information on our consultants. Careers in Depth draws on the expertise of a wider team of specialist consultants whom we call on when required to ensure we are able to address the diverse needs of our clients in a bespoke way.
