Journey Within believe every woman holds a wisdom and intuition in her being. However, in a society where we are socialised to serve and nurture others first, we can become disconnected from this thread of wisdom and forget that we also need to pour the same nurturing into our physical, psychological and spiritual self.


This is why I offer women with nurturing and nourishing spaces to be heard, be seen, cultivate the foundations of wellbeing by establishing a mindful practise of self regulation & self compassion. 

Whole women create authentic, deeply intimate and nourishing connections with their family, friends and community.



Journey Within offers therapeutic services for women in warm and nurturing spaces.

Salaam!  I extend a heartfelt welcome to Journey Within. This endeavor blossomed during a sabbatical from my role in the Housing sector back in 2019.

Journey Within emerges from my personal journey, where I found solace, affirmation, and encouragement within women's circles, retreats, and years of therapeutic exploration. In these nurturing spaces, I embarked on a profound inward journey, reconnecting with my body, cultivating  a relationship with my inner child, and growing a compassionate inner nurturer. Listening deeply to my inner voice allowed me to embrace my vulnerabilities, embody self-compassion, and nurture patience within myself.

Amidst my healing journey, I recognized the significance of inclusivity. As often the 'only one'—the sole Black woman and/or Muslim woman—I understand the need for safe spaces where women of color can heal, grow, and simply be, without the burden of explanation or the need to police their language. My vision for Journey Within is to create an accessible sanctuary where all women of color can bring their authentic selves. 

Peace and blessings be upon you,
