Feedback from my clients...
"To my dearest Afshan, hope you and your family are a doing well inshaAllah. I've been meaning to write a little note to you that's now very long overdue...Words can not express or do justice to the help and support you have provided me in one of the most unforgettable episode of my life. Our sessions were very few but gave me a mountain of support...just to sit and talk to someone and to hear you say 'it's okay and that everything is going to be fine.."
"..I have learnt in this past year now, to make excuses for myself. Allhmdillah shortly after our sessions i went back to pursue my studies, with the help of family may Allah bless them .I'm coming to the completion of my one year course in biology and Allhamdillah a distinction student. This has helped me boost my confidence and an emaan booster to study Allah's magnificent creation.once again jazakhallah khair .."
"..you're doing an amazing and an very important work in the community I pray that your reward is in Jannnh, that you will be rewarded with the best, that inshaallah Allah swt has saved for you and your family.."
"For so many years feeling i am unwanted, unloved, my existence doesn't mean anything to anyone and often feeling kind of invisible. This made me come to a conclusion within myself that i am a waste of space on this world, my existence is of no use"
"Until sister Afshan advised me to look into a mirror and to talk to myself, to write in my journal my thoughts and feelings. This has helped me enormously to reflect upon myself and to look at myself from my eyes and not from other people's, to hear the inner voice I have, not other people's. Alhamdulillah only ONE reflection in the mirror has given me the confidence and motivation to live. I looked in the mirror and reflected upon the way Allah Subhanahu wa ta'aala (swa) created me and realised that Allah swa would never have created my soul if I wasn't worthy of being created, They would never have created my body If i wasn't worthy of being on this world, SUBHAAN'ALLAH! This was my answer"
"There will be some people on this world who will not give us any space in their lives, but we should not let this deviate our purpose of creation. Allah swa has created us to worship Them and They will always love us and this is why we are worthy "
"I arrived at sister Afshan's door as a lost individual - someone who who had no concept of the understanding what it meant to look after myself. In fact the words 'what about me' were alien to me and as a result i was struggling with anxiety issues, and was really a shadow of my former self.
Through my sessions with Afshan i have gained a clear sense of myself again Alhamdulillah! Looking after everyone is important but now i realise so am I!
I would thoroughly recommend booking some sessions with Afshan if you are suffering with panic attacks and social anxiety, phobias and low self esteem, sadly all of which i was. Alhamdulillah i am safely on the road to recovery and there would no way i would be saying this is I hadn't had counselling. Afshan is very professional and knowledgeable masha'Allah. I really recommend her.

Salem alikoum. I just wanted to say thank you so much for writing this book. My husband and I have been together for 17years, we have 2 children. However the last few years have been really rough. I bought your book and read the entire book in one evening. Mashallah it has really made me open my eyes to where I am going wrong. My husband also had a brief look and said how good it was. Insh'Allah I have the strength and support from Allah (swt) to continue with my marriage. Many thanks
