Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment.
A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes). They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you have.
Sometimes the term “counselling” is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a type of therapy in its own right.

What is Islamic Counselling?
There are many different models of Islamic counselling but from our experience and what benefits the clients is incorporating spirituality in therapy
Mainstream Counselling only considers the physical, mental and social wellbeing, Islamic counselling utilizes the major tenets of integrative counselling but adds to them an added dimension. This is the relationship between the client and his/her creator.
Islamic counselling is based on the Quran, Sunnah and teachings of nafsiyat, based on Tauhid it works at a spiritual, psychological, emotional, and social level. It is a present day application of Islamic teachings and counselling skills to enable balance mental health and well-being and to enable Muslims to live more resourcefully.
We take confidentiality very serious
