Welcome! I appreciate your interest in this community. However, before we can proceed please take a moment to read the following Terms and Conditions for this psycho-educational course:
By engaging Nasir Al-Amin’s community and courses, watching his videos, reading his emails, reading his Youtube comments, reading his writings, participating in a 1-on-1 session, or otherwise engaging with Nasir Al-Amin and ALIGN & DEFY, LLC, you acknowledge that you have read, comprehended and fully agreed with the following disclaimer.
I understand that Nasir Al-Amin is providing psycho-educational and coaching services and is not a medical doctor or psychologist of any kind.
I understand that what Nasir Al-Amin shares is coming from his own discoveries from many years of reflecting on his own thoughts and feelings, as well as from books and various educators and practitioners.
I understand that Nasir Al-Amin does not diagnose, treat, or cure any medical or psychological disorder or conditions, but rather just helps people to investigate their own thoughts and feelings by providing instruction, advice, support, encouragement, and information.
I understand that even if Nasir Al-Amin uses words that describe medical or psychological disorders or conditions, he is still not treating the conditions or disorders, but just helping people to explore thoughts and feelings. His use of any words that describe medical or psychological disorders or conditions is solely for the purpose of using terms that are well known in society, and not as used clinically or in the diagnosis, treatment or cure of any medical or psychological disorders or conditions.
I understand that if I want to be treated for a medical or psychological disorder or condition, I must consult a medical doctor or other health care provider, and that I should not disregard or delay seeking professional medical advice as a result of something Nasir Al-Amin says or writes.
I understand that Nasir Al-Amin is not qualified, and is not able, to give any advice about whether or not I should take medication.
I understand that if I am considering suicide, or believe that I may be a danger to myself or others, I should notify the police or my local emergency medical services as soon as possible.
I understand that if I have had, or I think I have had, any strong or serious traumas in my life, then I should consult my doctor or other health care professional before working with Nasir Al-Amin’s methods, and I should notify Nasir Al-Amin before having a session with him.
I understand that the words “consulting,” “consultation,” and “counseling” on Nasir Al-Amin’s website is not used as a medical term, but simply describes an in-depth, honest, exploratory, and confidential conversation.
I understand that Nasir Al-Amin wants me to never believe or trust anything he says because his experience is that the emotional relief I want will only be experienced when I make direct discoveries about my own thoughts and feelings. This is why Nasir Al-Amin’s work predominantly revolves around asking people to engage their thoughts, as well as to engage questions and exercises.
I understand that when Nasir Al-Amin tells me to try a specific exploration or exercise that it is really just a suggestion to try the exercise rather than a mandate.
I understand that I am fully responsible for the decision to engage with any exercise, and that I can decline to work on any exercise that I think would be harmful or too intense for me to manage.
I understand that engaging with Nasir Al-Amin’s words and methods is likely to provide emotional relief, but I could experience any type of unwanted emotional impact.
I understand that Nasir Al-Amin often attempts to provide emotional relief by intentionally bringing up unwanted emotions that I may find to be scary, uncomfortable, or painful, and then using specific exercises to try to lighten, dissolve, release, or eliminate these unwanted emotions.
I understand that Nasir Al-Amin makes no guarantees as to the outcome of my use of his words and methods.
I understand that Nasir Al-Amin strives to keep all communications confidential, but that he can break confidentiality if he believes that I have or will cause physical harm to myself or someone else.
I understand that information that is transmitted electronically (i.e. email, Skype, dropbox, etc.) contains the risk of a security breach and losing confidentiality.
