What Our Clients Have to Say

Alhamdulillah Robbil Aalameen for making me and BHMC cross path. Alhamdulillah I have really learnt a lot on this journey with BHMC. Even though I studied counselling in school, BHMC has opened my mind and head to so many things I wasn't taught in School, especially on marriage. I'm not married yet, but I have realized so many things some married people haven't realized through the elaborate courses and practicals. Alhamdulillah Robbil Aalameen. Jazaakumullahu khoiran to my counsellor and mentor. May Allah continue to enrich your knowledge.

"Jazakumullaahu to BHMC. This course is very deep not like many of the counselling courses I have attended. I am wondering what we will be learning in the advanced class."
Maryam Gwandu, Marriage Counsellor, Master Practitioner,
What a phenomenal journey it has been. Uplifting, deep, transformative and life-changing. I had the pleasure of being a student on both the level MBCC and MBAC Certificate Courses in Marriage Counseling in 2020. I came into the course having studied an introductory course in counselling skills to develop my skills as a practitioner and eventually becoming a qualified marriage counsellor. My experience on the course is difficult to put into words because it was not only a journey into the field of psychological therapies but an extraordinary opportunity for self-discovery. Our teacher Ustadh Abdulkabir Ibrahim Olakewu is a truly gifted individual (Maa Shaa Allaah) who from day one added the new students to the Alumni group where we as students were able to explore our identities as well as develop our abilities as counsellors and understand how these characteristics are rooted in our core beliefs as Muslims. As part of the course, we were taught human personality which was indeed a great turning point in my life, understanding of the theory and how it relates to our personal life experiences. We also solve marital problems in the group. Central to the depth of our development as students was the therapeutic environment (Alumni group) provided to us by our teacher Ustadh Olakewu where we practice whatever we learn. As a result, we not only grew as individuals but created long-lasting friendships with others in the group. Both during the MBCC and MBAC I have observed the difference in my ability to connect with others when supporting them and the impact of incorporating my beliefs when practising empathy in my day to day dealings especially with PLWD. The knowledge the course provided me, specifically about ‘tasawwuf’ has also enabled me to better understand our identities as human beings and what motivates our behaviour. I would not hesitate in recommending training with BHMC to those interested in Islamic Marriage Counselling, learning more about themselves and what motivates them to explore the field of counselling. To crown it all, it changes my mind about marriage and I can boast to you that with Allah through knowledge/counselling you will never regret getting married. "A happy marriage is not about age; it’s about finding the right person and both working on each other."

Alhamdulillah robil aalameen. I have no cause to regret joining this organization to learn. The courses have been amazing in terms of my own personal journey, reconnecting with my self and soul, and beginning to explore on new levels; layers upon layers, deeper and richer. And learning how perfectly imperfect we are and seeing the beauty of the human condition in myself and others, Alhamdulillah. I have also loved the level of professionalism instilled in the students through these courses, ensuring that we understand and really apply what we are learning in terms of ethics and other professional issues. And also how much we have been encouraged to embody what we learn; (integrity, compassion, anger management, empathy, listening skills etc.). These courses not only teach us awareness about these qualities, they teach us to be these. We are taught the utmost respect for clients and how this is so rooted in our Islamic understanding and our deeper human connections. Learning instill our hearts, to be present for our clients in a loving and compassionate way and seeing through the lens of empathy not judgement. If I had to say what these courses have taught me in one sentence, I’d say they have taught me how to be a good Muslimah, May Allah bless our tutor. Aameen. With these I can tell you that.⤵️ "Marriage is an ocean. You can only view its beginning, you can not see its end. To be able to dwell in it unhurt, you need Allah (constant dua), sincerity and constant Naseeha from knowledgeable ones."( ADE'MIDE 2021).
