Sanctuary Christian Counselling Centre known as “The Sanctuary” was birthed out of a vision laid upon Olga Frederick’s heart.
The prophecy given to Olga in 2009 was just one of the many confirmations along the way that was given to her.
“God is calling you to establish something in a country that is not your own. It is a small seed. It may be something small but it is some big thing that is latent and dormant. It is a vision waiting to be birthed.”
Olga Fredericks is originally from Zimbabwe, born and bred there. She has been married for 30 years to Vincent (He serves on the Board of Trustees as a non-executive member). They have 2 children, a son in law and 2 grandchildren. She was trained at The Harare Christian Counselling Centre to an Advanced level (check the website: She counselled, trained and led seminars at the Centre for over 8 years before moving to South Africa. She then completed the Bryanston Basic Counselling Course, The Family Life Centre Counselling Prepare /Enrich Course as well as the Advanced Course in Church Based Counselling Management (Dr Leon Klein and UNISA).
Sanctuary is part of Global Mandate Wholistic Care Centres (see We are also affiliated to the Harare Christian Counselling Centre in Zimbabwe (
We look forward with faith and anticipation to your participating in God's vision for healing in this land through His church.

To set up an interdenominational counselling Centre in Gauteng. The Centre will be a place of healing, discipleship and transformation

through the power of God’s touch on people’s lives.




  • To offer basic counselling services that are high quality, professional, donation based, interdenominational, partner driven and volunteer- intensive to members of our local community
  • To offer high quality and professional training, counselling facilities to the local churches and the community.
  • To help people depend on Christ and to show people that their answer to their problems lies in Christ and in His transforming power.
  • To provide an opportunity for people to be introduced to Christ.

Often pastors and leaders are overloaded with the running of the church and don't always have time to counsel members of their churches. The need is great! There are often members in their congregation who have the gift of caring and counselling but who are not adequately trained. Churches do not always have the necessary resources to train or run a Counselling Centre. With this in mind, we are offering the Basic Counselling Course, Intermediate and Advanced Counselling courses to train those who feel called into this ministry. Other courses we have run are: “Journey to Wholeness” and “Restoring relationships”. We are hoping to offer in the future various support groups: i.e. sexual abuse etc.

We are praying and hoping to be seen as a support to the local churches where not only will training be offered, but also counselling to assist with the overload of counselling that is often seen at churches. We are asking that you support us through:

  • Sending lay people who you feel have this calling to be trained
  • Sending people to us to be counselled
