I had never heard of financial therapy but I’m SO glad I came across Aseel’s work. Each session helped crack open parts of my life I hadn’t even realized were driving daily discomfort. I thought of money as something that just needed to be managed. But through the course I realized just how misaligned my financial actions were with who I believed myself to be. Years of being underpaid and various childhood experiences left me treating money in a way that felt anxious and insecure.
But that’s not who I am anymore. Because of Aseel’s course, my financial decisions now align with and contribute to the person I’m proud to be. I’m confident, independant, creative and values-driven. My money reflects that. I don’t save because I’m afraid, I save because I value security. I didn’t upgrade my apartment because I’m materialistic, I upgraded because investing in my creative space is a core part of my daily happiness. I don’t resist new purchases because I don’t deserve them, I resist because buying second hand and owning fewer possessions aligns with my values. Aseels course helped me replace feelings of anxiety and guilt with confidence and clarity.
Aseel’s financial course was transformative! She really helped me identify and discover the unhealthy areas of my relationship with money and how I can improve them. I only ever thought about how I could make or save more money, but with Aseel’s coaching, I was able to change my perspective about feeling deserving of money, my worth, and develop healthy spending habits. I strongly encourage everyone to take her course; there is something for everyone.
Aseel is a very gifted and knowledgeable therapist and an authentic, intuitive human being. Her warm presence, keen insight and earned wisdom imbibes her work with so much transformational benefit. By Grace and guts, she is on her path.”
I joined Aseel’s 8 weeks pilot course “Financial Therapy for Arab Women”. Every session was profound. Aseel understands the emotional struggles and what it means to be stuck. She addresses everyone with a lot of compassion and knowledge, which allows all the participants to feel safe, open up and entangle those layers and get unstuck. We worked through the deeply ingrained social taboos and shame imposed on women that shaped a dysfunctional relationship with money and family. The course provides practical tools to work the emotional hurdle out and create a new relationship with money and wealth. My attitude towards money shifted from feeling drained and helpless to building towards stability and growth shamelessly.
Being a part of the Date Your Money program has allowed me to think beyond my own set limitations. I am now on my way to not just dreaming about the possibilities, but also materializing those dreams. Aseel has given me the tools and necessary steps towards understanding my present identity and creating a new one that is a much happier and joyful version of myself. For years I had been struggling with my past and underlying insecurities that I had unconsciously built and she has been such a blessing in allowing me to uncover my past and forge my truth for the present and future. I would recommend her to anyone that would benefit from her because she helps not only with your financial identity but also with your human identity and condition. She is truly an amazing human being and inspires those she touches with her gift.
Aseel’s support to breakthrough money stigma is very inspiring. These are difficult conversations to have and she has the grace and strength of heart to lead them. She’s helped me explore my own struggling money mindset and move towards a more resourced and abundant spirit, supporting me in my creative journey of entrepreneurship
Aseel’s course was very eye-opening. I am in my 50’s and thought that I have my relationship with money figured out by now. However, in this course, I explored my blindspots and opened up about areas I didn’t realize are still stuck. Aseel’s coaching allowed for many breakthroughs and also a great bonding experience with other participants.
Aseel is a highly motivated professional, result oriented and motivational. She has a huge space in her heart for people asking and ready for her help. I can’t stop recommending her to anyone looking to expand their relationship with money and overall wellbeing.
Working with Aseel on my relationship with money has changed my life. Her ability to guide me deeper into my own patterns, has helped to reveal the blocks that have prevented me from honouring my true value since childhood. Aseel has a natural way of making life’s most challenging circumstances transform into an opportunity for growth. I am so appreciative of her and this work.
It is so refreshing and needed, someone who takes a different approach to financial literacy. Aseel will change the landscape for many Canadians who are often excluded (or more importantly feel like they are excluded) from enjoying financial prosperity. I wholly recommend any of her workshops or her as a financial therapist
Aseel is extremely passionate about her work and is on a mission to spread her unique message. I had the pleasure of having her speak at one of my events, and people just loved her content and energy. I highly recommend her as a financial therapist/speaker.
In November 2021, Aseel El Baba’s Money Monsters presentation was headlined as part of Mohawk College’s National Financial Literacy Month activities. The event was thoughtful, informative and provided students with valuable insight into their money personalities. The virtual event was a success and well-received by our students with many commenting on the fun and interactive format.
This has been a transformative experience to say the least. I was able to explore various aspects of my identity in a safe and culturally sensitive space that fostered my learning and growth. Aseel is honestly such a warm soul and her very non judgemental nature and genuine intention of making a change in peoples’ lives is what we need more of in this world.
“It was a transformative experience, Aseel created a safe space and dive us deeply with compassion exploring our emotional struggles. She has been so helpful in highlighting things we weren’t aware of. It was a challenging experience to go through at first, but it turned out to be super rewarding and I was observing my mindset changing every session. I am grateful to Aseel and her incredible work.”
I honour Aseel and what she provided us in her group therapy: love, support, wisdom, knowledge, patience, healing and encouragement. She is such a great leader creating a life changing experience. I started to see my financial life with a whole different perspective and It helped me to break every wall that is stopping my financial breakthrough. I got the courage and the confidence to start my business and haven’t looked back.
