LifeLine Western Cape counsellor Glynis Depper unpacks what her organisation is doing help individuals hard hit by crime.

Crime has become a reality of life in South Africa and over the past few years it has become more prevalent in the Western Cape.

LifeLine Western Cape has been receiving many calls from victims of crime in Cape Town.

This shows how the current crime levels are adding to the stress of daily life for many living in the city.

To discuss the organisation's work, Rifilwe Moloto chats to counsellor Glynis Depper.

The increase is more subtle. This whole situation has gradually crept up on us. Many of us are not aware that we are bearing this stress because the rise has been gradual. It is manifesting itself through anger, people are coping with other pressure, but because they were dealing with normal stresses they don't realise this significant stress that is a crime. And one of our basic human rights is to feel safe.

Glynis Depper, Counsellor - LifeLine

She says LIfeLine is primarily a counselling service that provides its services through phone calls and face-to-face services free of charge.

The pillar stone of what we do is that of confidentiality. All our counsellors take a pledge so people can phone in and remain anonymous.
