"Rayesa is a gifted teacher, kind, compassionate, and is an active, empathetic listener, with the ability to gently coach her clients to their own discovery about their thoughts and feelings to bring awareness and awareness gives us the ability to choose our perceptions. Rayesa’s coaching has shifted and improved my life and my relationships. I have a sense of peace, I’ve learned how to work through times where I’m having big feelings, and this has been truly a blessing to have Rayesa Gheewala as my life coach! "
"Having a divorce coach who is well educated in not just Islamic and cultural values, but also in life experience and self-development, is able to comprehend what one goes through in the process and has clear objectives for you to work on, only enhances the process positively and accelerates growth after a traumatic life altering event. Rayesa is that coach and so much more. I cannot thank her enough for having the courage, intelligence and empathy to begin this initiative that has and will help many women within the Muslim communities. I truly wish that someone had offered your service that time so it would not have taken me a longer time to learn and have positive faithful realizations."
"You helped me change the way I think about negative situations You helped me stop making up stories in my head about what could happen in the future and to live in the present moment because no one knows the future other than Allah and it has no benefit to assume something is going to happen and react to it when it hasn’t even happened yet. You helped guide me in the direction I needed to go without making me feel like I need to decide on one thing and stick to it!"
"Making a decision like divorce is difficult. It consumes you with guilt and doubt. I was overwhelmed and doubted myself. I depended on others to validate me. Rayesa saw that I was taking on other’s bullets of criticism and suspicions. I felt I deserved them. She helped me realize that I was allowing others to control my thoughts and my emotions. I allowed myself to be controlled again. They spoke one word of doubt and I created an entire dialogue inside my head of guilt. Rayesa helped me understand that others may not think the same thoughts that I am thinking. They may not even mean any harm. I allowed myself to be attacked by others and myself."
"I listen to your videos all the time. They help me when it comes co parenting my kids and being in the middle of two families and compromise what is better for the kids and so that I can have peace IA. The one thing that you helped me with is detachment. You helped me to understand that even if I'm a mom and I have lots of responsibilities, I have to remember that Allah has reasons for everything and my children are a gift from Allah. You helped me to focus on my intention and effort and detach my worth from the outcome because the outcome is not in my hands. I'm still able to learn from you compared to other sisters who only see one side. Even though I am not divorced, I still take the opportunity to learn from you because I want to keep my marriage now."
"I was struggling with how to cope with divorce. I needed help with rediscovering myself after divorce, dealing with loneliness, and feelings of guilt, and ways to effectively coparent. I wanted a coach who practiced Islam and included our spiritual beliefs during the process of healing from divorce Rayesa provided actionable techniques on the how to recover...and not just sessions to talk week to week on issues I encounter. It has given me a new perspective on things and has allowed me to take accountability for the things I need to change about myself."
"Rayesa's active listening helped me hear myself and my thoughts and how I had so much negative self talk I like that we have sessions where we discuss next steps and then other sessions where it’s a flood of emotions and I just spill everything that’s going on in my head at the time. Once it’s all out you help me weed through it all and make sense of it and work to make better how I feel or react to the situation. You’re helping me along and very difficult journey not so much as my guide that I follow but as someone to lean on when I need the support but you also have given me strength and showed me that I am strong enough to make this journey in the right direction."
"Rayesa helped me realize that most of the self doubt was not coming from others it was my own trained subconscious that I had to be told what to do. Even when it came to emotions and thoughts. I was suppressing myself from doing the right thing. She helped me realize that I should only work towards pleasing only my creator and once I realize that I must focus on my own path the obstacle coming my way may not be as difficult. I have learned from Rayesa that allowing others to feel what they feel will help me be more free to think my own thoughts. I have learned that even though I’m still a work in progress keeping focused on loving myself for the sake of my creator can raise my confidence and keep my mind at peace."
"Rayesa’s approach is unique in how she integrates Islam into the sessions and reminders of what Allah asks us to do. Also, the recordings allow time to think on what I have discovered along the way. I like that she did not offer what I should do. Instead you get me to think through on my own what I should do with guidance on how...the actionable techniques. Also, her email messages with links to Quran and hadith and videos posted to social media has been incredibly helpful! Literally on days I needed it, those messages would come through. Alhamdulilah! Definitely would recommend this to others. Rayesa offers very valuable one on one sessions and have gotten me to see things I have not seen before. She has helped me to understand how to deal with my thoughts which has been so key! I love the inner Peace document and audio provided. It is exactly what I needed. I am trying to use it and have caught instances when I should have used it. It is a chance to self-correct."
"I just love that Rayesa gets you to THINK for yourself. She never tells you what you should be doing or thinking, rather she empowers each individual to seek out the answers within themselves. Such a simple yet powerful concept that can be applied to any area of life! She's shown me the need to find the clarity and purpose in my thinking before I can set out to achieve my personal goals. And she does it with a firm yet loving approach. She didn't merely give me tools for success, she's changed my entire outlook and mindset for life. ~A Rahman ~ "
