Best counselling centers in Nairobi

The need to talk about your emotions is seen as something to poke fun at, weak or shameful. That stigma is often why people don’t seek help in the first place. However, for many, counselling provides a safe and trusting environment, aiding in understanding and resolving problems. If you are in a situation where you feel like you cannot turn to a loved one, consider a counselor, a non-judgmental resource. Here are some accessible counselling centers in the Nairobi area.
