Lateef telephonic faith-based counselling

About ‘Lateef telephonic faith-based counselling’

Our service is open to any Muslim in Birmingham over the age of 14; it is a non-judgmental counselling service offered over the phone. 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. Our staff are trained in counselling skills to a level where they can assist the everyday problems of life and if need be, help Muslims to access other services around mental health. Callers do not have to give us their name; they can remain anonymous if they wish. We take confidentiality very seriously; all information provided by callers will remain confidential within the service.
