Individual, One-On-One Counselling Sessions

 

When you register for the retreat we will ask if you would like to reserve a counselling session with Khalida. These are very limited and so will be allocated on a first come first served basis. They will last 45/50 minutes which is otherwise known as the therapeutic hour. These sessions will be private and confidential spaces where you can talk through anything that arises for you as a consequence of the activities and experiences whilst at the retreat or anything you feel you need to explore in relation to the theme of reconnecting. You may want to share something that you have not shared with anyone else before. In this time you are unlikely to attain full resolution. However insha’Allah it may put you on a path to seeking further help by removing some of the fear that has been an obstacle to your addressing the matters you may share with me. There may be slots available during the retreat, but we encourage you to book them ahead of time.
