Skills. Understanding. Personal growth.

Hope House is passionate about developing the skills and experience of counsellors in Cape Town.

We also know the power that short courses can have to equip and grow members of the public,
so we offer short courses to public who would like to join in and learn.

We train counsellors

Counselling requires constant growth and self-reflection. We train counsellors in Basic Counselling Skills, and offer a range of courses, from ‘Counselling Adolescents’, ‘Children and Bereavement’ and ‘Marriage and Relationships’.

We also offer a course in ‘Counselling Trauma’ – an issue that requires that counsellors have well-practiced skills. Please check our schedule to see what Counsellors Courses are currently being offered.
