Restore: a Counselling Intensive Programme, 18-30 June, 2017

In collaboration with AlongsideUSA, Tumaini Nairobi is offering a two week residential counselling intensive programme for those who desire a program of counselling along with an opportunity to receive focused teaching on spiritually healthy emotions and relationships, as well as a healing group time to process experiences.

p1781741_1084319640_5Tumaini Nairobi first ran this intensive counselling programme in August 2016.  We are busy planning to run this again in June 2017.

This two-week intensive retreat for cross-cultural workers includes seminars on pertinent topics, daily group sessions, and individual or couple therapy. Therapists from Tumaini and AlongsideUSA will work with couples or individuals in a safe and nurturing environment to address spiritual, relational, psychological, emotional, marital, or trauma issues. This is a golden opportunity to access this valuable retreat in Africa at a more affordable cost and with greater convenience than possibly needing to return to a home country.

The retreat will be held at the beautiful Tumaini Counselling Centre in Karen, outside of Nairobi, Kenya. The cost includes lodging, meals, seminars, group sessions, and individual therapy sessions.

Space is limited to 16 participants.  A discount is provided for registration before 15 May 2017.  The following link contains all the relevant  costs and booking information:

Thanks to the generosity of AIM supporters, we have a limited number of scholarships available to AIM applicants which can subsidise part of the costs; please enquire by email to the address above for more details.  (And everyone considering coming should think about whether their own church or individual supporters might help subsidise their costs for attending.)

Comments from previous retreats

“We were at a place where we needed soul care.”

“I arrived at Alongside bursting with pain, disappointment, and broken dreams. My life and work in the —- world had been costly in so many ways … Alongside has been a haven to me.”

“In the past two years the demands of ministry caught up to us.”

“Taking two weeks to focus on this means that there was time to deal with more of the root issues that need healing and change. I think… there will be more lasting change in actual practice as I go back to the field.”
