Why Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy?


People are increasingly experiencing mental, emotional and spiritual distress and disease. With the rapid increase of mind-boggling technologies and post-industrial lifestyles, human beings deal with relentless change, information overload, and degradation of human values and worth.

It is in this context that Ilm-un-Nafsiyat, a wisdom-based, transcendent, and time-tested discipline located within the tradition of Tibb: Whole-Person Healthcare and Medicine, offers a most suitable solution towards re-balancing the inner turmoil of the human being.

Tibb is an Arabic word which literally means “nature”. It is a tradition of healthcare and medicine whose synthesis was in the crucible of the Middle East, and integrates elements from Egypt, India, China and Classical Greece.

From this perspective, true health is the result of human beings living in a state of wholeness and balance by returning to the natural order.
