Why islamic counselling? image
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

As-salamu alaykum warahmatu 'llahi wabarakatuhu,

I pray you are in the best state of health, and Imaan Ameen.

Saha Wellbeing is a doctoral-level, faith-based psychotherapy service, that embraces spirituality and uses Islamic principles at the heart of everything we deliver.

It may come as no surprise that for a religious group under continuous scrutiny, a profound lack of knowledge surrounding our beliefs and values can lead to barriers in clinical settings.

Saha Wellbeing Service values spirituality and believes in its potential for helping clients to face their problems and overcome obstacles. In addition, we work through the struggles commonly encountered by Muslim minorities living in the West. Therefore, we are mindful of the cultural issues that are entwined with the religious struggles that many Muslims face daily.

Upon completing a doctorate in clinical and counselling psychology in London, I experienced the huge sense of unfulfillment shared by my associates: we knew something was missing, something fundamental!

Searching for this missing piece led us on a journey to complete further training and courses on a crucial part of Muslim identity: being a part of one Ummah (community of believers).
