Assessments

Psychological testing provides a foundation to help psychologists better understand a person and their behaviour. It is a process of problem solving for many professionals - to try and determine the core components of a person's psychological or mental health problems, personality, IQ, or some other component. It is also a process that helps identifies not just weaknesses of a person, but also their strengths. Psychological testing measures an individual's performance at a specific point in time - right now. Psychologists talk about a person's "present functioning" in terms of their test data. Therefore psychological tests can't predict future or innate potential

In addition to these primary types of psychological assessment, other kinds of psychological tests are available for specific areas, such as aptitude or achievement in school, career or work counselling, management skills, and career planning.

  • Diagnostic psychological evaluations

  • Used to determine if an individual exhibits any signs of specific psychological diagnosis. These tests are useful in determining if any psychological conditions including emotional difficulties are underlying an individual's behaviour.

  • Neuropsychological tests

  • Designed to measure difficulties with cognitive functioning. These difficulties may include one's ability to reason, think, or speak; often the result of brain damage, stroke, or substance abuse.

  • Occupational tests

  • Designed to match your interests with the interests of persons in known careers.

  • Personality tests

  • Used to assist psychologists in developing clinical diagnoses of personality traits.

  • Career planning

Coaching

Coaching is a training or development process via which an individual is supported while achieving a specific personal or professional competence or goal.

  • Life Coaching

  • Life coaching draws upon a variety of tools and techniques from other disciplines such as sociology, psychology, positive adult development and career counselling with an aim towards helping people identify and achieve personal goals.

    In collaboration with her clients, Vuyo helps them become clear on their goals; map a plan for achieving these goals and supporting and encouraging them so that they are successful in honouring themselves.

  • Executive Coaching

  • Executive Coaching is a facilitative one-to-one, mutually designed relationship between a professional coach and a key contributor who has a powerful position in the organisation. The coaching is often contracted for the benefit of a client who is accountable for highly complex decisions with wide scope of impact on the organisation and industry as a whole. The focus of the coaching is usually focused on organizational performance or development, but it may also serve a personal component as well.

    Vuyo assists leaders to identify and move from the things that keep them stuck and transferring results into their organisations.

  • Career coaching

  • Career coaching helps individuals discover what they really want to do with their lives and then develop a strategy to achieve it. Career coaching is particularly relevant when people are faced with change (be it a promotion, change of job, redundancy - or even retirement).

    Vuyo helps her clients identify what they really want out of life, appreciate the skills and experience they have accumulated and opportunities and a network of contacts who can help them. She also helps them set career goals and develop strategies to achieve their career goals
