“Taking the oath as a psychometrist to me means entering into a solemn commitment with humanity. This commitment entails dedicating myself to prioritising the well-being of those I engage with in a professional context.
“I commit to treating all individuals with the utmost respect and dignity while consciously setting aside any personal biases during professional interactions. Additionally, it signifies my commitment to maintaining a high level of competence and consistently adhering to best practices in my field to benefit those I serve.
“Furthermore, embracing this pact with humanity signifies my resolve to utilise my skills and abilities to empower others, address injustices, and ensure that the services I provide are accessible to all, even the marginalised.”

The Eastern Cape lady’s journey has only just begun

Despite the strides Sibonelo has already made, there is still a long journey ahead, encompassing the completion of her internship, board exams, and more.

Sibonelo further lamented the challenges and moments of enlightenment that she experienced through her internship:

“My internship has proven to be an invaluable learning opportunity. So far, I've had the chance to engage in a wide range of psychometric assessments, encompassing cognitive, career, and scholastic evaluations.
“Additionally, I've gained exposure to conducting assessments in various non-clinical settings. Furthermore, my interactions with diverse clients from various backgrounds have underscored the existing disparities within our communities.
“It has also highlighted the lack of awareness regarding the services offered by psychometrists and their implications. This underscores the substantial amount of work that both I and many others in the profession need to undertake in terms of psychoeducation and ensuring accessibility to these services in marginalised communities.”
