The vision of Shamar Clinic is to offer you a transformative experience where you can go through a process of restoration, equipping, and release. Our programmes revolve around three key concepts: Restore. Equip. Release. which form the foundation of your journey towards healing. We strongly believe in the power of supportive relationships and community. That’s why we involve those closest to you in our treatment programmes, fostering effective growth in your important connections.
During the Restore. phase, we aim to help you work through the gravity of your pain and trauma. Our goal is to then Equip. and empower you to rediscover the meaningful purpose you were created for. As you gain confidence and courage, we want to witness the awakening of your natural abilities and strengths. During the Release. process, you return to your loved ones, better equipped to live your life intentionally, powerfully, and with fulfilment.
Preventative care is a key focus of our vision. Our therapy programmes aren’t just for those already in difficult situations; they aim to help people avoid challenges like anxiety, depression, trauma and addiction. In doing this, we promote your overall well-being.
Shamar Clinic’s therapy programmes are founded on biblical values and supported by evidence-based research to ensure excellence in our interventions. We’re passionate about providing mental health care that sets people free, brings restoration, equips people, and ultimately releases them into a meaningful life. We feel an immense calling to make this treatment accessible to all in our country, where there is a desperate need for such healing.
Shamar Clinic is a special place dedicated to bringing renewal and hope into your life. When you step through our doors, you’ll enter a home where you can experience peaceful rhythms of grace. We’re here to nurture your mind, body, and spirit, helping you on the path to complete healing and wholeness. Shamar Clinic is more than just a mental wellness clinic. We’re advocates for creating a culture of lasting change and rebuilding lives.
As a team of professionals, we’re united by our vision, our collective Christian faith principles, and driven by a purpose for each person we have the privilege of working with. We share a set of core values that guide us in everything we do. We value character and integrity, strive for scientific excellence, emphasise the acquisition of knowledge, insist on honesty, embrace inclusivity, demonstrate respect, and inspire hopefulness. We believe that your overall well-being is crucial for your complete healing. That’s why we’ve prioritised a multi-disciplinary and multi-faceted approach to treatment, and why we place a strong emphasis on preventative interventions. By addressing the root issues of your emotional distress, we effectively and comprehensively facilitate your recovery.

WHAT WE VALUE
THE MEANING BEHIND THE NAME
The root word for “guard” is the Hebrew word, SHAMAR.
The Shamar form of “guarding” one’s heart, is the picture of a shepherd who builds a kraal (a circular enclosure formed by thorn trees) in which he keeps the flock safe from predators.
Shamar is the concept, therefore, of keeping something of immense value surrounded by protection and safety.
“Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard,
for out of it flow the springs of life” Proverbs 4:23
