About Us

Foundations for Life is a multi-disciplinary holistic family centre situated in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town.

The Founders:

Bettina (B. Soc.Sc., Hns. Psych., MA Psych.), Melanie (B. Soc.Sc.) and Kirsten (B. Soc.Sc., Hns. Psych.) were all working in their own areas of expertise and were frustrated by the lack of unity between all therapeutic disciplines. This inspired the opening of Foundations for Life.

They have created a safe, caring and nurturing environment where healing is provided by professionals in a multi disciplinary way. This environment normalises therapy and personal development; meaning that no feelings of unease, embarrassment or prejudices should hinder your path of growth. We are here to welcome and support you.

Their vision is to create a balance between emotional growth and the natural education growth children receive.

The Centre:

The beautiful gardens, art room and therapeutic rooms at Foundations for Life create a space where the founder’s vision can thrive.
