Welcome to Hope House…

Hope House has been offering hope and care to hurting people for over ten years.
We offer counselling, addictions support and training to the people of Cape Town, South Africa.
Hope House is a Christian organisation that is passionate about welcoming people
of all races, religions and cultures to seek care and counselling with us.

Our Hope House Centres are in Bergvliet and Kuilsrivier, Cape Town.


Hope House offers one-on-one counselling in a confidential and respectful environment to people of all backgrounds, cultures and languages. We’re a Not for Profit organisation and ask for a donation in return for counselling sessions.


Schools Programmes

Our schools programmes reach out to youth at crucial stages in their choices around drugs. Our Addiction Prevention Programmes impact 16 Cape Town schools, offering 10-week prevention
and 16-week intervention programmes.


Courses and Training

We are passionate about the training and development of Cape Town’s counsellors  – so we run frequent short courses to enrich a counsellor’s skills and experience. We also offer public courses eg family, marriage and anger management.




Hope House Training with the City of Cape Town

Last week we completed training with employees of the City of Cape Town, we
enjoyed sharing the Strengthening Families Program with them and showing them tips and
techniques to build healthy family bonds and relationships.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story” – Maya Angelou

Our Mission: Inspired by the love of God, Hope House founders set off to offer hope to hurting people through Biblical care and counselling. Our mission is to equip people to withstand the pressure they face in trauma, loss and in the practical demands of daily life.

Hope House Mission Statement

Our approach is person-centred. This means we listen to every client’s experience with empathy and without judgement. Though we are a Christian organisation we approach counselling in a purely secular way.

Our Approach

We believe God can make a mess into a message, a test into a testimony, a trial into a triumph and a victim into a victor.
