About me

 

I am Georgina Cardo, I set up Salaam Solutions in 2012 to meet the needs of Muslim women who prefer an Islamic inspired approach to counselling. I reverted to Islam over 12 years ago after a researching spirituality and religion, Islam answered all my questions. The path hasn’t been without its obstacles, but what I have found is that my faith and interest in psychology are my essential guides on this rocky road of life.

I help women connect with themselves and their soul and help them to understand the root of their depression, anxiety, pain or concerns. Common concerns include; marriage issues, sexuality concerns, low faith, spiritual and religious questioning, abuse, anxiety and depression. 

The Approach:

My professional training and spiritual learning blends the psychological theory of Transactional Analysis with the spiritual practices of Tazkiyahatal Nafs (self/soul purification)

What is Tazkiyah?

Tazkiyahat al Nafs is an ancient concept based on self development with the aim of spiritual transcendence and enlightenment and the realisation of Taqwa (God Consciousness).
