We are a pro-women centre, founded in 1996. We believe in informing women and young people about pregnancy and sexuality, thus empowering them to make well-informed decisions for themselves and their unborn children.

Counselling service

Finding out that you are pregnant when you don’t plan to be, can be a frightening experience. For many women, abortion seems like the quickest and easiest solution. They feel overwhelmed by the pressures they are facing and desperately need help.

At Choices, free expert counselling is available to couples and women who experience an unplanned pregnancy or an HIV positive diagnosis during pregnancy and are exploring their options with regard to TOP, adoption or self-parenting. Sensitive, caring counselling and coaching are provided with the aim of enabling clients to make an informed decision. Our counselling is non-directive, providing information, support and compassion. It is the woman who makes the final decision. Very often this support is sufficient to help someone through a really difficult patch and make good choices for their life.

Post-abortion counselling is provided to those women who have experienced a TOP in the past. Choices support women during pregnancy, birth and where appropriate, are able to facilitate adoption. Local clinics and hospitals make use of the Choices service by referral of clients on a regular basis.

Schools Education Programme

Choices also have a Schools Education programme. A team of volunteers facilitate an interactive, abstinence-based education programme in a number of local primary and high schools. The programme empowers children and young people to take responsibility for their behaviour recognizing the physical, emotional and moral risks of casual sexual behaviour. The aim is to develop self-esteem, self-respect and self-awareness, as well as a basic knowledge of HIV and AIDS and the impact of the virus in South Africa, particularly amongst our youth.
