In the midst of this international pandemic and national lockdown, we are faced with uncertainty while we try to work from home, cope with being alone or in a full house 24/7, being a full-time employee, parent, spouse, teacher, and more. This can all be overwhelming.

The Family Life Centre is providing virtual counselling in this time or emotional turmoil. Should you need assistance, don't hesitate to contact them.

You can address emails to Bernadette at intake@familylife.co.za.

Scheduled Events

Please note that dates are subject to change. During the lockdown, meetings will be conducted virtually via Zoom.
