The demand for churches and organisations to raise up volunteer lay Christian counsellors is on the rise world-wide. The annual Grace Wholeness Counselling Training Course is a Christ-centred, Biblical model of short-term goal-orientated counselling, where the primary aim is to point people to a right relationship with God.

The pre-requisite for this Course is the four week Wholeness Course, which is the theology behind the Wholeness Model of counselling. This course is available on DVD [R100] with accompanying manual [R50]. 

The Wholeness Counselling Training Course runs for ten weeks, covering the Wholeness Counselling Framework - which is a Biblically-based model of counselling aiding the journey of wholeness and spiritual growth. This course also includes basic counselling skills training with practical applications, tools and assessments.

This Course includes an exam, essays and a practical assessment weekend. Please note that not all who complete the course will qualify to become volunteer counsellors.

There are two day/time options below for 2018:

- Fridays 0900-1100 starting 19 January at Grace Riverside

- Mondays 1900-2100 starting 22 January at Grace uMhlanga

Grace Counselling serves the local community of by providing counselling resources and services through a network of churches.

Grace Counselling was birthed out of a passion to see God's Church serve a broken and hurting world. The demand however often outweighs the resource, so the vision grew into seeing churches pool their counselling related resources to serve each other and the community.


This site aims to be an open-access resource to aid all forms of counselling from church based, volunteer driven counsellors to professionals in the private sector and include resources from support groups to personal growth courses.


We also have lists of counselling professionals in our community and an overview of addiction treatment centres with direct links to their websites.


Our heart is to also see the standard of training available for lay volunteer counsellors in our churches grow, so if you are interested in further counselling training, then check out our upcoming training courses.


At Grace Counselling, we are all about being part of God's plan in putting the pieces of people's lives back together [Psalm 20.24 MSG].

Join us on this journey.
