Tumaini Counselling Centre
Tumaini (Swahili word for Hope) Counselling Centre was primarily opened for mental support of African Inland Missionaries, a Christian organization whose goal is to spread Christianity in Africa. Even so, the centre is open to persons who do not subscribe to any faith as there is a team of professional counsellors at the centre who base their approach according to scientific knowledge and principles rather than religious beliefs. Tumaini Counselling Centre acknowledges that while they may be faith based, religion does not offer all the solutions to the mental and psychological challenges one may be going through, hence the need to tap into science and non-religious knowledge that is licensed by the professional body of counsellors in Kenya.
