The founders of the Christian Counselling Centre, Ian and Adie Wilsher, have been involved in counselling and teaching marriage and family principles for 26 years. For 11 years Ian and Adie worked as pastors of a growing and active Church (Northside Community Church). They had a dream to establish a Counselling Centre in Zimbabwe. In 1996 they were led to start the Centre in Harare.
The Christian Counselling Centre is a non-profit registered Trust that offers counselling to anyone who would like to talk confidentially to a counsellor concerning any problem. Our volunteer, multi-denominational team of counsellors is trained to an Advanced level in Christian Counselling. In addition to providing counselling and counsellor training, the Centre offers seminars and workshops for various areas of need. (Marriage, Parenting, Stress, Anger, Anxiety, Depression, etc.)
The need for the services of the Christian Counselling Centre has grown steadily in Zimbabwe as it is a country in crisis. The economy has been in ‘free fall’ for about 10 years. Thus many families are under extreme pressure – essentials (bread, sugar, flour, maize-meal) are very expensive and only available to those who have access to foreign currency.
Many people have left the country – thus whole communities have been disrupted and destroyed. Families are divided, with parents, brothers and sisters and children left behind. This national crisis has had a pronounced impact on families, marriages and individuals. The stress and pressure result in problems of anger, conflict, anxiety, depression and a huge sense of loss in individuals, causing and compounded by the breakdown of marriage and family relationships.
The Christian Counselling Centre’s unique and challenging role is to facilitate God’s grace in this very harsh environment. It has been a privilege to see God at work bringing beauty out of ashes, life out of death, hope and healing.
