Career Guidance:

The assessment covers four areas:

  • Personality

  • Vocational interests

  • Skills

  • Values

Personality:

Personality describes the way a person is motivated to act.  Therefore it is important to consider your personality style when making career decisions.  This is helpful in choosing a career and career environment that would match your personality.

The personality survey covers six major factors of personality:

  • Dominance

  • Extroversion

  • Compassion

  • Conscientiousness

  • Adventurousness

  • Innovation

General interests:

Interests are a critical step in the career planning process, as people excel easier when they are interested in their work.

Vocational interests are categorized into five categories:

  • Doing

  • Helping

  • Influencing

  • Analysing

  • Expressing

The more you enjoy what you are doing, the more likely you are to be successful at your work, and the lower your work stress will be.

It is very critical that you match your work to your primary skills in order to gain the personal joy of doing something that comes naturally.  Working with your natural strengths helps you learn faster and achieves more from the same amount of effort and is simply more fun.

Values:

You can be in a career field that is a good match for your vocational interests, skills and personality strengths and still experience job satisfaction and stress if your work does not match your values. 

This section covers:

  • Work environment values

  • Work outcome values

  • Life values

The results will supply you with information that will help you understand your unique make-up and the type of work that would be a good match for you.

Two options are available: 

Option 1

Child-Centred Support:

Play counselling, based on Gestalt is an approach, are used to accommodate children’s needs. Play Counselling accepts each child where he or she is in life and provides support to promote personal development and emotional growth.

Some of the benefits of play counselling for the child is:

Rather than having to explain what is troubling them, children use play to communicate at their own level and in their own time, without feeling threatened.

Socio-Educational Support:

During the psychoeducational assessment, psychometric instruments may be used during the screening, assessment and support process. Scholastic barriers may contribute to poor coping skills, and the counsellor/psychometrist is experienced in identifying support strategies in the system to render support to learners with barriers.
