In Kenya, it is estimated that one in every 10 people suffer from a mental health issue. Mental illness can affect a person’s mental as well as physical health, and ultimately their quality of life.
At Counselling Kenya, we are committed to helping people with mental health disorders get their mental health back on track. Whether you suffer from anxiety, depression, or another mental illness, our passionate team of professionals can help you overcome the effects of trauma in your life. Our team of licensed and certified counsellors is trained to assist people with mental health problems in learning the skills they need to cope with their present condition and break free from the past.
Our Mombasa counsellors take a pragmatic approach to diagnosing and treating mental health problems. During the initial consultation session, clients are asked several questions including information about themselves, family, and mental health history. The information provided by clients during the session helps therapists acquire an in-depth understanding of their overall mental health and their trauma history.
Our team of experts develops customized treatment plans tailored to the specific healthcare needs of our clients. Mental health treatment plans are not set in stone. Therapists monitor progress and may tweak plans after a few sessions if required. Additionally, treatment plans should work for your therapeutic goals, as we take a collaborative approach at Counselling Kenya.
At Counselling Kenya, we use evidence-based modalities to treat mental health disorders. We utilize techniques like EMDR, CBT, exposure therapy, and mindfulness training to help the client move through the mental health disorder. The benefit of our approaches is that you may see results in as little as a few sessions. What sets us apart from other counsellors in Mombasa is that each of our counsellors is trained in one of these modalities, ensuring that you will be receiving the care advertised.
Trust in mental healthcare matters. Our therapists go the extra mile to build trust with their clients. When a patient trusts their therapist, they are comfortable sharing their thoughts, emotions, and feelings with them. Because we know that therapy is a time to discuss and disclose deeply sensitive and personal information, we hold this time with our clients as sacred. Our therapists maintain client confidentiality and do not discuss cases with others, unless they have reasons to believe that a client poses a danger to themselves or others.
Before commencing a therapy session, we create a calm and peaceful environment that allows clients to relax. Our office spaces include aesthetically pleasing and thoughtfully designed interiors so that you can feel comfortable. You can find images of our spaces on our Google profile to get acquainted with us.
Located in Nyali, the team at Counselling Kenya conducts various exercises during sessions and assigns out of office homework to help clients develop coping mechanisms to manage their mental health outside of the therapy session. Our approach to care is one where the client learns the tools needed in therapy to eventually thrive independently beyond therapy.
If our counselling office is outside of your area, we also offer online sessions to Kenyans. Our hybrid model offers flexibility for the people that prefer in person counselling, while also catering to those that prefer telehealth sessions for convenience, because we know how hectic life can be!
Our Mombasa counsellors work with their clients to identify the root causes of their mental illnesses and treat them, rather than just address their symptoms.

We know that it can be challenging to find a safe space to process your deepest pain. Looking for a mental health therapist can be a long intentional process, and we appreciate you taking the time to find us.
