What people think about us


"I think I have felt more at home and forthcoming as my Counsellor understood my cultural needs. My perception of a situation has grown from one angle to all other ways to solve certain situation."

"I think the service provided is very caring, when people of our status come, who are away from their families and struggling come and Sahaayta provided that link which keeps us sane and helps us to process more meaningfully."

"I feel more confident than before. Sahaayta helped me to understand what violence is. What is acceptance and what is not?"

"The Counsellor has excellent communication skills. Understanding my situation very well. Explaining brilliantly on the whiteboard and I learnt so much from these sessions. Thank you. I love these non-judgmental and respectful sessions."

"The Counsellor is very accommodating. Understood my family and worked with each of us. The Counsellor respected what we had to say, was not biased at all. Helped each member to combat our problems, without counselling my family would have torn into pieces."

"I have felt very comfortable coming into a very welcoming environment. I feel that I have developed a very close and open relationship with the counsellor. I felt that I can share anything with them. It has opened up many different perspectives of thinking for me, helped me look towards the positive in life and taught me skills to help deal with everyday life."

"Was constantly in a habit of worrying, there were days/times when I did freak out now I take one day at a time, I am able to hold my peace/ be calmer."
