Community Support

PsychAssess is proud to be involved with various foundations and initiatives that drive change and development in our communities.

The Tirisano Foundation

The Tirisano Foundation is an institution made up of young professionals from South African townships who, through education and self-development, have found a market for their skills and would like to impart this knowledge to learners from similar backgrounds. They would like to show, by using themselves as an example, that there are avenues for life-changing opportunities. They work with students from Grade 9 to Grade 12.

Between 2014 and 2016, Psych Assess had the opportunity and privilege to present a workshop to Grade 9 learners, guiding them with their subject choices.

Edu Fun & Read for Africa’s development project at Diepsloot Combined School

Amazing things have been happening at Diepsloot Combined School thanks to Jenny Taylor (Director of Read for Africa and of Edu Fun NGO) and her team of volunteers.

Chenelle and Melanie have had the privilege to help out on occasion in order to improve the reading skills of the grade 2 & 3 learners.

“☺ I would like to thank Chenelle from PsychAssess. The assessment setup and feedback was personal and comprehensive. She definitely helped us in the subject choice phase of my son’s schooling. We will absolutely look at the grade 11 assessment in future and I recommend Chenelle and the group to all parents and educators. Thanks so much.”

– Louise

“I couldn’t have asked for a better service and I’m 100% satisfied with the career assessment as a whole.”

“My daughter was assessed by Chenelle. The assessment and the subsequent feedback session were done in an utmost professional manner.

My daughter needed help with deciding what would be suitable for her in terms of tertiary studies and possible future career options and both she and I are satisfied that we were given the appropriate advice and she now knows where her strengths lie and what she should be focusing on. Chenelle took a lot of time to go through the very extensive report that she had prepared and whilst it offered no real surprises, it also confirmed what would suit my daughter and her personality.

I will also ask Chenelle to assess my younger daughter when it is time for her to choose subjects for Grade 10 and I would recommend her to anyone looking for career or study guidance without reservation. Thank you, it was a very worthwhile exercise.”

“Thank you very much for your time and efforts, we found it very informative and very helpful and we can only go forward from here with our daughter.”
“Thank you for the uplifting and positive way Chenelle handled this assessment – my daughter really feels motivated after our meeting.”
“I really must thank Chenelle, she did a phenomenal job. Have already started recommending her to people I know.”
