Journey Within believe every woman holds a feminine wisdom and intuition in her body.
This is why we provide women with a nurturing and nourishing space to explore and connect with their intuition, embrace their feminine wisdom and stand in their truth.
In a society where we are socialised to serve and nurture others, we can forget that we also need to pour the same nurturing into our physical, psychological and spiritual well-being.
We believe a nurtured woman cultivates authentic, deep and nourishing connections with her family, friends and her community.
Journey Within offers therapeutic services for women in warm and nurturing spaces.

Salaam! My name is Suad, Journey Within is a passion project brought to life during a sabbatical break from my job in the homelessness sector in April 2019.
Journey Within was born from my own experience of being held, affirmed and supported by circles of women in retreats, sharing circles and workshops. In those circles, I began a journey back into my own self, to nurture my inner child, heal old wounds and grow my inner mother and nurturer. I learnt to dial down external noise and really tune into my inner voice, allowing me to meet my most tender self, to embody self compassion, unconditional love and patience.
Alongside my experience of healing and nurturing, I was aware of being the 'only one'. The only black woman and/or, the only Muslim woman. I know, just like me, women of colour need safe spaces to BE, heal and grow with other women who look like them. My intention is for Journey Within to be an accessible space for all women of colour to bring their whole self.
Peace and blessings to you,
