About Us

It is my pleasure to welcome and thank you for visiting this site. We hope as you navigate your way around, that you capture the vision, mission and purpose which will empower and support individuals, families and communities.

The term ‘shalom’ derives from the ancient Hebrew concept – often translated ‘peace’, which means wholeness, completeness, soundness, health, well-being and safety.

The Vision first emerged in 1991 with its founder members Carver and Pauline Anderson in response to the need for an alternative holistic service for individuals and families faced with challenges and disempowering situations.

As a result of our observation and experience, (through consultation, research and partnerships) the development of appropriate intervention strategies to address identified needs and concerns emerged.

Shalom Counselling & Training Enterprise via ‘The Olive HuB’ is committed to providing the best possible service as a Christian run organisation, upholding principles of justice, integrity and anti-oppressive practice, with expertise and a willingness to come alongside you to understand your spiritual concerns as well as other needs. Whether as an individual, family or organisation you hold Christian values and beliefs or feel these do not hold meaning for you, Shalom Counselling and Training Enterprise is committed to helping and working with you.

Finally on behalf of Shalom Counselling & Training Enterprise,
we hope that our work will be of impact and support for those who engage our services.

I trust that the work will be of impact and support for those who engage in the ‘The Olive HuB’s’ services.
