The Writer and The Dreamer

It has taken me along time to get here.

It all started with The Dreamer.

Do you remember her posts.

That poet would post intermittently her poems.

She poked and prodded the Writer within me.

Shaking her from her everyday existence.

The Writer was wide awake for a few seconds as she hungrily digested The Dreamer’s words.

Only to fall asleep again as she went back to her world of Rescuing.

The Writer has truly emerged.

This is the place where she gets to play.

If anything in this blog has really resonated with you and you would like to discuss the subject further with Taniya privately then use this link.



Having qualified as a Social Worker in July 1991 from Coventry University, it has been over two decades that I have been on the front line working with children and young people who are traumatized and on the margins of society. Although I studied Psycho-dynamic counselling for two years at Goldsmiths College (1991-1993), I decided to integrate Psycho-dynamic theories and skills into my Social work practice and flirt with and immerse myself in studying Islam as well as interfaith dialogue and friendships. For the last 20 years, I have been working in a multi-disciplinary Youth Offending Team in South London, comprised of Professional colleagues from different faiths and cultural backgrounds trying to support young people in the criminal justice system. I am married and mother to three sons, and juggle Social Work and interfaith dialogue with my writing, studying and the needs of home and family.
