Therapy For Ex-Muslims

What can After Faith help with?

Welcome. My name is Aisha. I am a qualified therapist and I specialise in supporting people who have left Islam or other high controlling religions. As a British-Born Pakistani who identified as a Muslim until my early 20s, I understand the difficulties associated with losing religious faith and becoming an ex-Muslim. When I was going through my own journey, I noticed there is very little support from people who understand the religious and cultural difficulties associated with leaving Islam, and that is why I created After Faith.

If you are wondering how therapy with me can help you, this depends on where you are in your journey. Some people who are early on in their journey might want to rediscover themselves and work out who they are without religion. You might not be sure what your future looks like without religion, which is what I can help you figure out.  

Most people I see are at the point where they have accepted themselves as being an ex-Muslim and feel that it is time to ‘come out’ to their families. Telling family can be scary. Together, we can think about what support you need to do this, and how to manage the reactions you get. There can be physical and emotional risks involved in this and I always advise caution when sharing loss of Faith within the community. 

 

Whilst I have gone through my own journey with loss of faith and ‘coming out’ to family, I don’t have all the answers. I can’t and won’t tell you what to do, I can only help guide you towards figuring out what you want to do. I am there to help you get to the next stage in your journey, whatever that may be.

I also offer therapy regarding general anxiety/depression or cultural issues, please check out my other website here.
