Registered Counsellor & Psychometrist in Cape Town
I am a Registered Counsellor, Psychometrist and a Certified BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT) Practitioner based in Cape Town, however, I offer many of my services online allowing me to work with people from all over South Africa. I thoroughly enjoy the balance that my profession allows between administering psychometric assessments (or tests) and counselling. The psychometric assessments that I offer include subject choice assessments, career guidance assessments as well as assessments focussed on scholastics, potential learning difficulties and examination concessions and exemptions.
Subject Choice Assessments
Choosing subjects for the FET phase (Grade 10 – 12) can be a daunting task which typically takes place in the latter part of a learners Grade 9 academic year. It is an important decision to make as it ultimately determines whether the student has the necessary subjects to pursue their chosen study path or career field. A Subject Choice Assessment can be a valuable tool in guiding students into making an informed decision. The Subject Choice Assessment incorporates career counselling as well as a battery of various psychometric assessment measures.
Career Guidance / Choice Assessments
A Career Assessment (often referred to as an Aptitude Test even though the assessment battery assesses many other domains too) can be a beneficial tool for individuals who may be wanting to decide on a study or career path, whether it be a high school student, a university student or an adult wanting to embark on a new career field altogether. The Career Guidance / Choice Assessment incorporates career counselling as well as a battery of various psychometric assessment measures.
Psycho – Educational Assessments
Psycho – educational assessments are commonly recommended for students who struggle to keep up with the academic demands of their grade. Psycho – educational assessments include assessments needed as evidence for applications for potential examination concessions / accommodations or subject exemptions. They can also be used as a screening for potential barriers to learning. The purpose of such an assessment is to establish the student’s strengths and weaknesses and to obtain a more holistic understanding of the individual’s current performance and difficulties. The psychometric assessment battery varies, depending on the student’s reason for referral and their age.
