THERE IS HOPE for healing and wholeness

How does the Pathway work?

HPTW is open to anyone suffering the effects of hopelessness due to mental anguish, chronic pain or special needs.

HPTW offers a wholistic approach to wellbeing: focusing on the physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions of guests and providing a range of therapeutic services to renew hope.

 

1. Guests will arrive and be invited to register in the waiting area.

2. Guests will be invited to experience a somatosensory video presentation followed by a breathing exercise. 

3. Guests wanting to pass through the prayer pathway will be invited to meet the prayer team.

4. Guests attending a therapeutic appointment will access a range of therapeutic, counselling, nutrition and/or life coaching services.

5. Guests will be reviewed regularly to assess what stage of the pathway will best serve their needs.

6. Referrers and care oversight will be regularly communicated to with updates of progress and recommendations for moving forward.
