About Us

Hope House is a non-profit organisation that offers counselling, addiction recovery support and training in psychosocial intervention and education in Cape Town. We have centres in Bergvliet, Kuilsrivier and Blaauwberg and run programmes in schools around the city.

Our services are open to everyone, regardless of age, identity or religious affiliation. We do a lot of work with children and adolescents and are one of the few centres that counsels children from as young as three years of age. Most of our clients come from the poorer communities, but not all of them.

Social development objectives

  • Expand access to mental health services.
  • Address the prevalence of substance abuse in Cape Town – particularly amongst youth.
  • Strengthen families within socially and economically communities
  • Challenge stigmas around mental illness and counselling.



Hope House offers one-on-one counselling in a confidential and respectful environment to people of all backgrounds, cultures and languages. We’re a Not for Profit organisation and ask for a donation in return for counselling sessions.      VIEW DETAILS

Out-Patient Substance Abuse Treatment Programme

Our counselling centre in Kuilsrivier offers a 16-week outpatient rehabilitation programme. We also run a support group for families who are affected by someone else’s addiction. While our headquarters in Bergvliet and Table View are not drug rehabilitation facilities, we do offer on going counselling to people in recovery who have gone through detox or rehabilitation already.

Schools Programmes

Our schools programmes reach out to youth at crucial stages in their choices around drugs.
Our Addiction Prevention Programmes impact 16 Cape Town schools, offering 10-week prevention and 16-week intervention programmes.      VIEW DETAILS

Courses and Training

We are passionate about the training and development of Cape Town’s counsellors  – so we run frequent short courses to enrich a counsellor’s skills and experience. We also offer public courses eg family, marriage and anger management.       VIEW DETAILS
