Islamic Counselling Certificate
The Islamic Family Institute offers a 2-year certification in Islamic Psychology and Counselling. This comprehensive course is a series of courses enabling the student to understand Islamic Counselling in theory and practice based on Quran and Sunnah. Upon completion, the student should be able to apply the acquired knowledge and help Muslims in different life situations.
Note: Islamic counselling is a branch of knowledge which is separate from clinical counselling. Its roots are in the knowledge of Islam and only benefits from some of the empirical knowledge of conventional psychology. Therefore, this course does not qualify the student to conduct clinical counselling or give diagnoses. However, upon completion of this certification, one should be able to conduct Islamic counselling professionally.
