Restore: an Intensive Counselling & Teaching Experience

July 2019

NB We ran our Restore programme in 2016, 2017 & 2018, but will not be running it in 2019. Instead we are offering some 3-day Marriage Retreats in both Nairobi, Kenya, and Jinja, Uganda, in September / October 2019.  For full details click here (PDF).

Below is information on the Restore programme we ran last year:

Restore 2018: Sunday 15th – Friday 27th July

Tumaini Nairobi is offering a two week residential intensive counselling experience for those who desire 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 Restore in August 2016.

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 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 or couple therapy sessions.

Space is limited to 12 participants.  A discount is provided for registration before 1 June 2018.  Unfortunately we are not able to offer a programme for children and teenagers this year, but we can arrange for childcare for 0 – 4 year-olds if needed.

Comments from participants at 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 … (this) 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.”
