About Hope House

Hope House has been counselling, educating youth and running courses for counsellors in Cape Town, South Africa for almost 12 years. This is the Hope House story…
Hope House Counselling Centre was established in 2004 in Lakeside, Cape Town.
Judy Strickland, a trained lay counsellor, started counselling from a house in 2004 and soon, Hope House was born. Hope House was started with the vision of offering counselling to those who needed it, without fear of the cost. Courses were also offered at low rates.
