We have spent the past 33 years interfacing with distressed and traumatized adults and children, providing emotional support whilst facilitating the development of and further adaptation of the individuals resilience skills. To date we have counselled over 440 000 Buffalo City Residents and surrounding areas.

As part of organisational development and our sustainability strategy the organisation changed its name and branding on the 1 March 2014 from LifeLine East London to Masithethe Counselling Services. The name Masithethe when translated from isi-Xhosa means “let’s talk”. Through individuals and community’s engaging, talking and listening we not only build resilience but also mobilize society for change. We believe in a person’s capacity for positive psychological change when supported through struggles with highly challenging life circumstances.
