Being a counsellor has been a lifelong dream of mine since I was a little girl, when seeking help from others was not an option. Having struggled myself, I realised that I did not want people to go through difficulty alone, and that asking for help should not be considered “embarrassing”.

I want to erase the stigma of being a counsellor – especially in my community – and want people to know that there was no shame in seeking counselling services.

Being a Muslim counsellor, I hope to be able to give back to my community and help people, especially since I attach a great of importance to representation. My lifelong goal is to help as many people as possible and be able to proudly represent my religion.
