The LightHouse Arabia is a safe and peaceful space to talk through any issues one may have. I saw Madeeha a few years back for help with relationships as well as recently, for my anxiety. I find her approach very effective. Her ability to connect with me and understand me, makes me very comfortable and secure to talk through anything. The calmness I feel talking to her, and I can feel around the clinic, is one that encourages me to always go back should I need it and that helps the healing process. I am forever grateful to Madeeha, and the clinic for all their work that has supported me and gotten me through some very low points.

I recently joined Madeeha’s ‘Healing through meditation’ and it was an amazing experience. The way she managed the session and explained the concepts was really helpful. The best part was the meditation- it was truly magical and I would recommend it to anyone who is on a healing journey or interested in meditation.

I had no idea what to expect walking into a meditation session with Madeeha and the experience exceeded my expectations. I’ve started daily meditation following my session and I intend to continue doing so moving forward. It has helped me with processing my thoughts and feelings. Overall my energy feels so much lighter. Thank you Madeeha for providing such a safe and welcoming space.
