Screening Services

Empilweni provides screening sessions to assess whether or not the case is appropriate for the services we offer. If you have been referred to us, or are wondering if Empilweni’s services can be of help, please drop in to our offices Monday to Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm.


Referral Services

Khayelitsha has many non-profit organizations, and sometimes it can be confusing to know where you can get the care and support appropriate for you. Empilweni will screen your case, and if another organization is best suited to help you, we will refer you to the most appropriate organization after screening.


Counselling Services

If Empilweni is the most appropriate organization for your specific case, we provide a clinically supervised assessment and plan of action for your case. This usually involves home visits, school visits, counselling sessions, and participation in group therapy programmes.

Empilweni - A place of healing

Empilweni’s Goal is To improve the quality of life and witness the transformation of children, adolescents, and their families in our communities by providing culturally-appropriate, child-centered, and community-based mental health support and counselling.
