Defining who I am and what I do.

It has always been difficult to define who I am and what I do.

I am and do a lot of things.

I am a Writer, a Blogger, a Poet, a Social Worker, Counsellor, Trainer, Coach, Consultant, Teacher, Healer and Intuitive Guide.

I am a Mother, Wife, Daughter and Sister.

I am a friend, frenemy, colleague, collaborator and competitor.

Unapologetically, I am Muslim with a big capital M and a small m.

The one who surrenders, submits and the one who is at peace and the one who is whole and secure with myself.

I have consciously and unconsciously been a Muslim even in my agnostic years which were a few in the late 80s.

I am definitely Spirtual and a Seeker.

Until I found what I am looking for which was always and still is under my nose, inside my heart, mind and soul.

The wealth I carry which we all carry is inside ourselves. But most of us are totally unaware of this Truth constantly looking outside of ourselves for it.

I am not talking about material wealth here. I am talking about spirtual wealth.

And when I talk about surrender and submission, it doesn’t necessarily mean to God. It can mean to circumstance, oneself, the process one is engaged in.

Surrender and Submission, Peace and Security and Safety and Wholeness all flower from the same root.

But they all do not come easily and require the letting go of the egotistical mind.

Submission and Surrender are not intellectual exercises and now being 51 years on this earth, I am realising they are everyday practical exercises.

While I have always been a practical person a practitioner on the front line battling with trauma, distress and adversity in all its forms, working with the poor and the marginalised, it is when I started my Business in 2018 when I understood.

I actually have learnt more about Submission and Surrender as an Entrepreneur.

And that is what I do teach what I am learning everyday.

How to submit to the Unknown, to the process, to surrender to parts of yourself that you are unaware of or who you have buried or who scare you or you have denied.

It is a gradual process which I am patient in accompanying you on this journey.

If you are a woman or a man who come to me seeking solace from distress then I work in a collaborative fashion to secure your becoming at peace with your darkest and deepest fear.

Usually this fear is actually the freedom you need to embrace your wholeness and your uniqueness.

To get to this beautiful place is entirely up to you.

For some it can take three months and for others months and for others years.

There is a characteristic that is shared for those who come to me and who want to work with me, and who flock to listen to what I have to offer.

Yes all of these people are very gifted with intelligence, resilience and are high flyers, having overcome alot of adversity against the odds. They are very self sufficient and are just used to getting on with it. Until they cannot continue.

They have hit a wall when they find me, an impenetrable wall where spirituality, faith, friends, family and the usual addiction work provides mo solace.

Yes all the people that come to me or who gravitate towards me are Workaholics.

And that is what I do get behind, underneath, and deep within that addiction so glorified by society and I rent it asunder.

I shatter every belief that it is so entrenched in your psyche and smash it to pieces.

Because I am so intimate with the addiction being a recovering workaholic myself. I take you through the process of Submission and Surrender, you come out the other side finding Joy and Colour and Fun. Never feeling guilty again.

So that is who I am and that is what I do.

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.




Taniya Hussain qualified as a Social Worker in 1991 from Coventry University in England. She has been working on the front lines, consistently holding space for individuals and families for three decades especially, children and young people on the margins of society.

Taniya met Sheikha Halima Krausen in 1992 and has been studying Islam with her ever since especially Mystical Islam, Tassawuf (Sufism) and walks on the Chisti path. Taniya really started using the power of Jungian Pyschology and Mystical Islam when she started her Online Coaching and Consultancy Business in 2018 and discovered she was a powerful healer. When she discovered Shadow Alchemy in 2019, she started developing this modality into Muslim Alchemy in 2020. She now brands herself as the Muslim Alchemist because she is constantly integrating her knowledge of the Quran and Bible with her vast Social Work experience and her extensive ability of applying Psycho-dynamic, therapeutic techniques to organisational settings, team dynamics and when working with individuals and groups. This has both Online and Offline. Taniya uses skillfully her understanding of the Shadow, that Jung constantly talked about and her Mystical Training plus her experience in inter-faith dialogue since 2003, to help individuals and groups become conscious of what they previously were unconscious of leading to rapid success in their Business, Health and Relationships. Taniya has a great skill in being able to see the blind spots in others and in untanging energetic knots (a term she uses for Shadow) to promote healing from mental and physical disease. She uses her vast expertise and skills to help her Online Clients to get rid of decades of anxiety causing insomnia, depression and suicidal thoughts and marital problems. Clients usually are healed in a short amount of time never needing to invest in Therapy again. She really is the Muslim Alchemist as she turns the shitty experience of clients into golden experiences where they manifest upgraded, wealth, health and relationships all at the same time. Taniya got married in 1995 and has three sons born in 1996, 2001 and 2003 and lives in Surrey, England and when she is not developing Muslim Alchemy, she loves to spend time with her family and write fiction stories, songs and poems.
