CAREER COUNSELLING/GUIDANCE                         Call 033 346 1650 to book an appointment
The underlying principle of our Career Guidance is to match personality, interests, skills, and values, with potential career paths, the key elements we use are:
Yourself (Personality type and abilities)
Your occupation choices (Specific type of work interest and aspirations)
Your career (Broad category of work employing your skills)
Your job (Employer/potential employer – also relates to your values)
Primarily the tests we use are normed for School grade 10, 11, & 12 pupils or useful for post matric clients, though of course we can gear our Career Guidance for any client situation or circumstance such as a client wishing to change career or move in a new job direction. As with all our counselling the first Intake Session is conducted without cost in order for the client to consider the benefit of continuing.
The following tests that are available for us to employ will not spell out one specific occupation, but will rather give key information that will help you understand your unique makeup and the type of work that would be a good match. The resultant personal career codes and your own career/job aspirations are taken into account as well as consideration that occupations may tolerate a variety of types and there is often room for niche specialisation within most occupations which may suit your prominent personality type.
