We offer faith and culturally sensitive confidential counselling. A safe place of neutrality in an non-judgemental approach no matter what faith background you practice. A space for you to find healing in your faith or spirituality.
Together with your therapist, you can talk through what's bothering you or setting you back, by looking into your thinking patterns and belief system as well as your spirituality. Your emotional intelligence and how you think on an everyday basis. By talking through your issues and examining the way in which you think, to help you move forward to a more positive view of the world and where you are within it.
Sometimes we can get in a muddle of what is faith and what is culture. So the need to separate the two in order to better understand whether it is a faith or culturally related issue OR both. What we do know is they both work hand in hand in our everyday lives both within the family dynamics.
Islam teaches us how to live our lives in a holistic manner as a Muslim. Islamic faith based therapy incorporates the Islamic perspectives of counselling and psychotherapy which focuses on the whole person. The total well-being of an individual is key to establishing a healthy outlook in ones life. By looking into ones spirituality, mental, physical and emotional self, your outside world as well as your inner world. Although Islamic counselling incorporates some of the mainstream models, it does differentiates itself by incorporating the self, soul, heart connection and Nafs (Ego).
Our cultural beliefs are equally important and we cannot disregard this in the counselling room. We know and understand that being faith and culturally aware and sensitive to the clients need is part of the healing in sessions.
Islamic counselling practices and theory is from the Quran and Sunnah (of the prophet Muhammad – SAW)
"Since I have been attending the support group, I feel good and find myself looking forward to the sessions weekly. Sometimes you can feel very isolated not knowing who to talk to. When you work with the group you realise you are not the only one who is facing hardships"
"I found your sculpture therapy a very insightful process. It offers a refreshing approach to discovering parts that we have do not realise have been lurking in the shadows for so long. It was a truly empowering process"
