The Career Counselling Session

  • It is a once-off 60-minute consultation.
  • Client confidentiality will be maintained and informed consent will be acquired prior to the consultation.

What are Psychometric Career Assessments?

  • These are formal, structured exercises designed by psychologists and psychometrists to measure certain psychological qualities to assist you in choosing a career that suits your personality, abilities and values. They are scientifically researched and tested to ensure that they are fair, reliable and valid.

The Career Assessment

  • The Assessment consists of a comprehensive series of pencil-and-paper exercises and computerised assessments (user-friendly).
  • All assessments used are recognised by the HPCSA, highly reputable and normed for the South African population.
  • We assess your Aptitude, Personality, Career Interests, Values, etc.
  • The cost of the Assessment may be claimed back from your medical aid.
  • The Assessment is typically a 3-hour process.
  • A comprehensive report will be given to the client and the results will be discussed in a 1-hour follow-up feedback session. Parents (or partners) are welcome to join in the feedback process.
  • Testing is conducted in a safe, professional environment under supervision of the registered Psychologist.
