One on One - Lifeboat Counselling

At Soul Food Café we use a wellness model in our workshops and counselling, so you can thrive and not just survive. That means we are not only concerned about signs and symptoms but we assist you with your awareness, education and personal growth.

  • Age, stage and meaning issues

Our Counselling Principles

  • Share the helping process with clients
  • Help clients see counselling as work sessions
  • Help clients become better problem-solvers in their lives
  • Become a resource person for clients
