About us

Beyond Counselling and Coaching Institute is a Non Profit Organization Reg No : 2021/ 702724/08 operates in the Cape Flats District of Cape Town, South Africa.

The organisation has combined the experience and challenges faced by the teenagers and youth in the previously disadvantage communities of South Africa and we realised that in order to assist people to live a crime, violence, drugs free life style one must be emotionally balanced, hence we assist with Leadership Skills, Critical Thinking and Social Entrepreneurship so that the youth and young man can live a purposeful and meaning life. 

This is a journey we don't only talk about but we have lived it. We have build this organisation based on personal experience and the educational formulas  necessary to assist the Youth and Young man  with emotional, psychological and economical challenges. 

We will go beyond our practice in assisting one to find oneself!


Our Vision 

Is to recreate the world with Youth  who possess Emotional Intelligency &  Critical Thinkers.  


Using counselling and Coaching as the tools to empower the youth to create and live positive lifestyle
