How we can help

Health is not the absence of disease. The absence of ‘evidence’ does not mean it does not exist.

As social change agents, we support a holistic approach to mental health at primary health care level.

Our mission is bridging the gap between access to mental health care,information and knowledge in both private and public sectors.

Health equity & equality for all. 

Our activism includes offering online and face-to-face counselling sessions. 

We seek to address the Social Determinants of Health at the intersection of  systemic structures and power dynamics  as sources of trauma that impact and influence the mental health of everyday lives. 

We believe mental health is not just an individual personal agency, it is the collective responsibility of societies.

As part of our holistic strategy we work in a multi-disciplinary setting that focuses on the total person; body, mind and spirit and our interaction with the world around and within us ‘real’ or ‘imagined’. 

Group facilitation & Family counselling

Family is important, it plays many roles and contributes significantly on people’s perceptions of themselves and or the world around them. A supportive family structure informs our identities, protects,validates member's existance, shares culture, language, family value-systems among many other elements.

Training Workshops

Many people find it difficult in today's world to cope with the many demands of modern living. Our training workshops will cover; Life Skills, Mental Health awareness in Schools, Corporates & natural home environment, Intercultural communication, Culture & Organisations, Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, Decison-Making,

Sex, Sexuality & Reproductive Health

Sex forms an important aspect in life. Within relationships it’s significance can not be ignored or undermined. Sex is an area where many problems arise. Your sexuality, or sexual orientation, is basically a way to describe the feelings you have for someone you fancy or are attracted to.

Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety is a normal and often healthy emotion. However, when a person regularly feels disproportionate levels of anxiety, it might become a medical disorder. Depression is complex and layered. It presents itself in different ways to different ways which can be difficult for the person experiencing it.

Mental Health Awareness & Support

We advocate for mental wellness for everyone. ‘Health’, either physical or mental, is not a luxury item, something to be “afforded” when a society has generated enough “wealth” to pay for it. Health is, instead, an ongoing positive engagement between people, communities, the environment, the state, and the world at large.

Personal growth & Self-awareness

Personal growth is the process by which a person recognizes himself or herself and continually develops himself or herself to reach his or her full potential. Personal growth is an important part of a person’s growth, maturity, success and happiness. What does personal growth mean to you?

What Clients say?

At first I was very nervous and anxious about starting therapy and finding a therapist who is a good fit for me. But once I had my first session with Tendai, I felt at ease and felt very comfortable. She allowed me space to be vulnerable, to explain my situation & feelings and be free, which is not easy for me. She's a great listener, one of the most genuinely compassionate people I've met and she offers kind guidance and emotional support without being forceful. She recognises issues that I face and positive traits which I struggle to see in myself. I will definately be recommending her to anyone I come accross that needs therapy and counselling!
Tendai is an Incredible listener and extraordinarily kind . She really takes the time to try and help you and is always that for you If you need it. She has already helped me so much in the few sessions we have head already, I am looking forward to have in more sessions and getting a better understanding of my feeling with her help.

Tendai services have been very instrumental the past couple of months in helping me understand what I have been going through. Her approach has been instrumental in me finding grounding especially at a point in time where nothing seemed to have an end in sight.
Mwalenga , 31 years
I love having Tendai as a counselor , she has the ability to read an individual so well. Even if you try to hide yourself and toxic traits she's able to figure out exactly who you are , what you're hiding from and the necessary steps you need to take to find healing. Her approach is so amazing and subtle. Speaking to her is effortless and not uncomfortable or awkward because she is warm , relatable and allows you to be exactly who you are.
Kayresha, 24 years
Tendai is a professional counsellor who has helped provide nonpartisan professional, third party advice and insight on my marriage helping me to be more objective and identify the real issues and how to deal with them. I would recommend her to anyone as she has contributed positively in my life.
Tendai has been amazing through my therapeutic journey. She's come in at a time when I need a ton of help but could not go outside to get it. She has guided me through most of my feelings by knowing when to engage me and when to just lend and ear. She's helped explore myself and is an amazing listener. She's been an amazing and very much needed presence during the stresses of this pandemic.
