Struggling with your career choices?
Unsure about what subjects to take?
Not sure what is out there in the world of work?
Uncertain about what study direction to go into?

I am passionate about Career Guidance, making a difference, helping people with career decisions and finding something that is best suited to who they are. I am a Career Guidance Specialist, registered as a Psychometrist with the HPCSA. I operate in an advisory capacity to provide career options / guidance that will enable others to make informed decisions. My services include Subject Choice Assessment, Aptitude Assessments, Career Guidance for Grade 11 & 12 learners, Career Guidance for post matriculates or Tertiary students, and Mid-Career changes for adults. My practice is based in the West Rand, and I also travel to where the need may be.

My key clients are:

  • Private individuals (School going learners; tertiary students, adults)
  • Schools - Aptitude assessments for subject choices
  • Corporate investment programmes (CSI),
  • Wellness campaigns within corporate companies.

I prefer to follow a holistic approach where I compliment the psychometric assessments with personal/biographical information. My focus is therefore on personality, interest, values, aptitudes, ability, skills, career maturity, background (such as previous studies or working history if applicable) and your knowledge about the world of work (what you already know). Having a solution based service; I would like to help others to explore their options and to find something suitable to them.

My practice is based in the Westrand and I offer services in Krugersdorp, Noordheuwel, Roodepoort, Roodekrans, Florida, Radiokop, Wilgeheuwel, Ruimsig, Randburg, Linden, and Constantia Kloof etc. Services are claimable from medical aids.

My tertiary education started at the University of Johannesburg where I completed both my B.Sc Physical Sciences Degree in 2003 and my honours in Psychology in 2004. Thereafter I completed my internship and registered as a Psychometrist (independent practice) in 2005 with the HPCSA. In addition, I completed my Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at UNISA in 2014 in order to enrol for a Masters in Educational Psychology.

Having worked within the industry for 10 years, I have a passion for helping others, making a difference in other’s lives.
