    RSW, Spiritual Director, Psychotherapist (Q)

    Centre Bethany Centre is a place that provides spiritual direction and counselling services that will contribute to the physical, spiritual, emotional and psychological well-being of individuals and families. Our approach is centred around healing in an African cultural context, that is to say, healing is the remedy that is required when something goes wrong with the functioning of the mind, body, psyche, environment and spirit. This malfunction often results in one feeling anxious; abandoned; physically, psychologically and spiritually traumatized; a sense of loss of self.

    When we speak of healing, we also speak of sickness, which is often seen as negative, evil and ugly because they are connected. Sickness does not only refer to physical pain in the body; it is also inclusive of psychological, emotional and spiritual pain. Additionally, it speaks to an imbalance within human being, within community, and within nature.

    The healing process means being whole; restoring relationships with oneself, other human beings and with nature. Centre Bethany Centre creates non-judgmental and compassionate safe spaces. We use humour and laughter where appropriate, coupled with a combination of eclectic modalities to treating traumas.
