1:1 coaching sessions with me, are unlike anything your daughter has ever done before.

Using simple & universal principles that underpin all human behaviour, she will learn to gain mastery of her mind and emotions, and learn to get herself unstuck & consistent, so she can…

Feel secure about herself and life, no matter what.


“What I have found most beneficial after having 1:1 sessions with you is how easy I understood what you were saying. I've made progress. I feel like you're doing what you're doing to really help others rather than to make money. I've had (other) sessions before but they were more like an off-loading session. But with you I've learnt things that I can easily apply.”

Trust me. I Understand what She's going through

…a racing heartbeat, sweaty skin, and clenched fists. To have spiralling thoughts and emotions convincing you that somethings wrong with you.

…losing control, getting tangled in power struggles and arguments, feeling helpless and powerless.

…crying to herself at night, self-hatred and loathing, not feeling good enough, scared, sad and worried for the future.

…wanting to give up, to turn back time, fast forward, switch off, end things, die, self-harm, and to want change and help more than anything else.

…trying to make progress, improving, changing and then… failing again, falling back and getting stuck – burnt out, overwhelmed and feeling incapable of consistency and permanent growth.


getting the help she needs, finally understanding herself, and overcoming her problems.

will transform her life…


Islamic Counselling, Coaching & Therapy for Teens

As a teen in the early 2000’s I went to an all-white, all-girls, small town school in Cheshire. I’m not sure why, but I hold those difficult, confusing and self-conscious fillled years so vividly in my mind.

Today, I am a mum of teenagers myself, and over the years I’ve easily connected and understood many teenage girls.

It’s easy for me. I appreciate their struggles, I can relate to their challenges and feelings, and I’m still ‘young’ too

Now, as a trained, certified and qualified mental health professional, I thoroughly enjoy counselling and mentoring our young women.

I see their potential, I have a knack for bringing out the best in them and I show them how to be at peace with themselves and their situation, no matter what others do or dont do.

I’ve also lived years with chronic anxiety & depression. In the throes of it, I promised myself that one day, when Allah blessed and guided me to healing, recovery and strong wellbeing, I would teach the secrets to self-transformation with as many Muslim Teens and Mothers as I could.

personalised support

and one-to-one attention

Teens! Do you ever wish you were more in control? So, you…

…weren’t so reactive (explosive even!)?

… didn’t cry so easily and intensely?

… didn’t feel so bothered, affected or hurt by others actions?

… could be consistent! And didn’t give up or lose motivation so easily?

… didn’t shout or lose it?

… didn’t depend on others to feel good about yourself?

… stopped comparing yourself to your friends and peers?

… no longer thought something was wrong with you?

… could stop blaming others, wishing things to be how you think they should, and instead could take ownership of your own life and write your own story?

You go t this ♡

w h a   t ‘ s  c o v e r e d…

I will gently hold your hand to help you:

Realise your innate health & power to change your reality

So, you can easily unlock the inner wisdom Allah gifted us all with, and access a secure state of mind to naturally and effortlessly solve any problem

Power-up your purpose

Uncover and get complete clarity on your what & why in life.

Achieve your goals and fulfill your responsibilities with ease and confidence.
A solid purpose will have you taking action consistently, eliminating limiting beliefs and thoughts of “What's wrong with me?” "I wish it wasn't like this!" and “Why can't I get it right?”

Master your mood and emotions

So, you can easily quieten your mental chatter, get out of your head, enjoy your life by taking ownership of your emotions; no longer leaving them in someone else’s hands!

You will learn how to disempower unresourceful thoughts, let go of negative emotions, and move into productive behaviours with ease.

Truly trust in Allah

By cementing your security and wellbeing with Him so you can finally experience inner peace and sustained contentment no matter what challenges you face. Your eemaan will increase, your soul will feel lighter and you will be able to live in the present, no longer worrying about the future or feeling sad about the past. This is freedom.

Clear out the cob webs

You’ll learn how to finally heal in an instant(!) so traumas and triggers no longer have any effect on your life.

Transform your mindset, melt away limiting beliefs, boost your self-worth, self-efficacy and self-esteem and finally understand:

- how the past does not need to control your present,
- how life & relationships can be easy and enjoyable.

Define your dreams and map out the journey

Using the power of NLP goal setting you will discover your dreams and passion and create a clear path to success, so you always have the motivation to keep moving forwards and get out of bed with energy and love for life and without dread and a heavy heart

Raise your perspective

So, you can break out of the counterproductive cycles of anger, withdrawal and frustration and kickstart powerful cycles of co-operation, respect and understanding instead.

You will learn how to move into higher perspectives of wisdom and maturity.

I love how Mariya connects what she teaches to our Deen and way of life. I’m more confident and applying what I've learned from Mariya has enabled me to just let go of all unnecessary pressure. For the first time I finally feel at peace with myself, life just feels lighter and more enjoyable.

Salaam I’m Mariya,

Certified, Qualified & Experienced Mental Health professional

I am co-founder of the They Are Our Future Project & founder of the Mothers of the Future support community; both projects with a mission to empower and develop the Muslim family.

I have worked closely with lots and lots of teenagers whether 1:1 or in my group-based, mental health class ‘Teen Mental Health Success’.

I’m also a mum of 4 adults-in-training (aged 6-16) and have been home-educating and school-mumming since 2009.

I’m here to help you and your daughter overcome whatever struggles you are experiencing inshaAllah.

Alhamdulillah no one is broken. Allah is the most Just and made everyone innately healthy and capable, believe man-made society and culture has created the problems we and our vulnerable teenagers face.

I know how hard it can be when you want to make real and consistent change in your life, but you find yourself overwhelmed by negative emotions like anger, fear, anxiety and sadness.

You get discouraged at whats seems to be your lack of ability to achieve or change, thinking there is just someting wrong with you and you’re destined to be stuck in your problems for the rest of your life.

I know your heart is in the right place, you’re caring and responsible, you want to change and do the best by any role you play, but you need support to get you to where you need to be and help you through the sticky moments.

I’ve overcome troubled teen years, toxic relationships, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression and feeling confused and stuck, to finding purpose and a life that makes me motivated to live life with peace and fulfillment every day.

My mission is to please Allah by strengthening our ummah so we can bring the good changes our world so badly needs. I know how easy it is to restore and maintain a healthy state of mental and emotional wellbeing.

And I’m here to help you and your teenager achieve that as quickly as possible, because no one likes the feeling of being stuck or a failure.

I’ve been through a lot, and I know what it feels like to have zero support, no one to turn to, and feeling completely lost but wanting to create the change in your life you need.

I’m proof that no matter what your obstacles, as long as you learn to maintain your inner wellbeing and sense of security with Allah, whatever you want to create or change, you can achieve it.

I’m here to help

Most people suffering with mental health or relationship problems, think they need to see a CBT therapist, psychologist or psychotherapist to help solve their situation.

The problem is, the counselling models that are most prevalent (eg. CBT) are built from the work of Sigmund Freud, and focus on uncovering the ‘deep reason/trauma’ that causes counterproductive behaviours.

These counselling models have clients believe they are patients who need fixing.

And this is problematic because it keeps people stuck and overwhelmed by life as sessions go on, with the hope that one day they’ll reach the break through or milestone they wish for.

I know this because I’ve been on both sides of the fence.

I’ve utilised CBT therapy when anxiety & depression controlled my life, and then later studied CBT when becoming a life coach.

CBT & other mainstream therapies are like drugs. They dont cure you, they are a treatment that you become dependent on to function ‘normally’

I think this is unfair and unnecessary.


My clients quickly recognise they are healthy and whole, and that their past only affects them when in a low mood.

I quickly open my clients eyes to how when in a higher mood, our thoughts, perspective and emotions are higher too, and thus our behaviours and actions and those interacting with us, are wiser, compassionate and confident. I show my clients how they can quickly live at cause rather than be affected, and how they can easily gain inner peace and move into higher moods whenever they choose.


Freedom …


We all have issues and will continue to have issues as it's a part and parcel of life but I have learnt to handle them alot better and be at peace with myself. I would highly recommend working one to one with Mariya, you will not regret it.

Break-throughs, recovery and transformation await inshaAllah

1:1 coaching with me, is perfect for you if…

  • your teen apears to have depression and/or anxiety
  • your teen struggles with managing their anger and stress
  • your teen has a strained relationship with parents & family
  • your teen appears to have low self-esteem/self-worth
  • your teen finds school/college/uni challenging and overwhelming
  • your teen is being bullied or feels pressured by peers
  • your teen needs someone they can trust to confide in
  • your teen appears to be a ‘people-pleaser’, ‘follower’ and cares a lot about what people think of you
  • your teen has self-harms, has suicical thoughts and/or has attempted suicide


As mentioned above, CBT rarely provides clients with a lasting transformation. Having Health Realisation/Three Principles Therapy & NLP coaching sessions with me, quickly provides you with insightful realisations that liberate you to create change and maintain it. You will feel light and free, ready to accept and take on anything inshaAllah.

Yes definitely. I struggled with trauma and triggers for years. It had such a bearing on my life. I’m now completely free alhamdulillah. And know exactly how to help you achieve the same freedom from pain and trauma with the permission and help of Allah. If you’re ready, please book your call now.

Divorce is more prevalent than it has ever been in the history of mankind. This isn’t because bad spouses are more prevalent. Not at all. This is because we have lost our understanding of easy relationships and what it means to be a human.

I can help you steer your marriage to success, just by working with you.

I do not offer couples sessions.

It takes only one person in a marriage to gain the maturity, wisdom and skills to turn a marriage around.

Islamic Life Coaching

Clients seeking therapy are usually easily affected by their emotions. This means you could change your mind about having sessions prematurely which would put an abrupt end to your growth or at least slow it down. I want to see you achieve the transformation you’re after, so for this reason, I ask for payment upfront before a course of sessions begin. This means you have a clear reason to continue attending your sessions and achieve your goals inshaAllah.

I understand we don’t all have access to extra finances that cover our self-development. But does it make sense to continue spending on your children’s education and development, with tech, tutoring, books and extra-curricular activities, when you’re struggling to stay calm and connected with them? Isn’t a loving, stable and strong mother the foundation for whatever you dream your children’s futures to look like? Or does it make sense to continue distracting yourself from your problems by eating out, shopping and self-care treatments, when you’re emotional and mental health continues to control your life? Or does it make sense to spend on your career, business or anything else ‘extra’ when you struggle to sleep at night and wake up in good spirits?

If you’ve read this page and found yourself nodding throughout, there is nothing more important for you to spend on right now, than your self-development.

So, if you do not have control of your family’s finances, show this page to your husband or whoever does and explain to them the problems you’ve been facing, the changes you want to make and how working with me will help.

If you still do not have the finances but are in urgent need of help, please click here to fill out an application for a potential sponsorship of sessions inshaAllah.

Sorry, no. Private mentorship takes energy, time and commitment. If you go into this thinking, “Oh, if this doesn’t go as I planned then I’ll just ask for a refund.” You are setting yourself up for that situation exactly. It’s all down to mindset and attitude. If you come into sessions feeling grateful for this opportunity and motivated for what is going to come next for you, then that will happen! So, once you have paid no refunds will be offered.

As soon as you’ve paid for you sessions, you will be redirected to my calendar where you will be able to book all of your sessions. If for some reason you need to cancel/reschedule a session, please have the same courtesy as I would for you and do it 24 hours in advance. I understand things come up, kids get sick, etc. so we will simply reschedule after you let me know you are unable to attend. All sessions must be scheduled within the time-frame of the package you’ve purchased.

No sorry. My services are for women only. Please check back here in the future, my husband, Dr Oz is training to be a coach inshaAllah. Or click here for another coach who works with brothers.


I would definitely recommend Mariya. I have learnt so much from her. I've learnt to let things go and not take things so seriously because only stress and over thinking come's out of it. I feel at ease...
