Welcome to MANNAHEIM




Mannaheim Healing Centre was born from a visionary dream to Zelda Language, Psychologist and founder of Mannaheim Healing Centre. We offer treatment for anyone who suffers from Trauma, Depression, Burnout, Anxiety, PTSD, Stress or the like. In addition, Mannaheim Healing Centre will spearhead valuable and much sought-after psycho-therapeutic and wellness services to a growing number of women and couples who have suffered the loss of a child as a result of miscarriage, termination, stillbirth or neonatal death and SIDS (Sudden Death Infant Syndrome) or are facing the challenges of infertility and surrogacy. As well as to mothers who suffer from antenatal and/or postnatal depression. Furthermore, Mannaheim Healing Centre is there for overall wellness of the individual and/or family, helping everyone to thrive and reach their full unique potential. Hence Individual, Couple and family therapy is offered at Mannaheim Healing Centre.

Mannaheim Healing Centre presents a variety of weekend retreats. These include retreats for bereaved parents to help deal with the loss of a child/baby. There are also retreats for parents and/or single parents that have lost a baby either through miscarriage/termination or baby that has been stillborn. Furthermore, we also offer couple retreats for marital enrichment (irrespective of the number of years being married), couple retreat for premarital counselling (dating, engaged, first year of marriage). Please contact us to enquire about retreat dates. Dates and venues will be published on our website and Facebook page in the near future. ( Due to the Covid-19 regulations, these retreats are currently on hold).

Please contact us to enquire about our services or to book your individual, couple or group sessions. We look forward to welcome you into our healing environment. Step into your Journey of Healing Grace and experience restoration, transformation and empowerment!

(Please note: Mannaheim Healing Centre currently consists of consulting rooms. However, we are in the process to expand to premises that will also offer accommodation, but in the form of a PRIVATE Wellness Centre. Mannaheim is NOT a clinic/medical facility or psychiatric institution.)

Please consider donating to Mannaheim Healing Centre’s online grief support, counselling and future retreats and Wellness Centre. This contribution will help facilitate our mission – to support women and their families grieving pregnancy loss.
