About this course

The Therapeutic Khalil course is a new innovative course introduced by Ihsaan (a specialised Islamic Psychological Therapy Service) in collaboration with Al Balagh. It is a comprehensive course that helps support those who are not professionally trained as psychological therapists to continue to develop their knowledge and skills to support the spiritual and emotional well-being of our community.

The Therapeutic Khalil course has been designed by leading Muslim Psychological therapists who have a keen understanding of challenges faced by our diverse Muslim communities and how being a good Therapeutic Khalil to your fellow citizens is a duty for every Muslim. Individuals don’t always require professional psychological intervention but instead, the community should continue to develop structures to support one another especially given the challenges in modern times that have impacted on such community structures.

The course will only be available to those students who have completed and passed the Al Balagh Islamic Counselling and Psychology – Level 1

The course will be tutored by leading Muslim clinical psychologists and counsellors from Ihsaan and their partners. Ihsaan is a certified clinic of the International Association of Islamic Psychology.
