Some of you may find me morbid or depressing or dark even but the conversation is important to me.
While many die of the Pandemic recently the tragedy that so many boys and men commit suicide in the Western world for me is just as troubling.
And I know it is important to many of you as fathers and mothers of boys and as wives of men or as sisters of brothers or as boys and men yourself or just as friends to boys and men.
Whoever you are reading this or whatever you do these words are going to touch your heart.
Whether you are a professional or a Layperson it does not matter the conversation relates to us all.
I started the conversation on how boys are so demonised and marginalised and labelled and misunderstood from a very young age. Even as young as one or two.
Having witnessed the pain as a Social Worker since 1991 of how this labelling, this perceiving them as being naughty, aggressive, bad, attention seeking, rude, defiant just sticks for the rest of their lives.
Sticks into their psyche.
So my witnessing I realise has become more than that.
The deeply sensitive soul that I am, the label which is a sticking plaster actually covers so much.
As a Social Worker and someone who also runs a Coaching Business, I have always observed the conversations that are rampant in society and I often become part of conversations very few want to entertain.
As someone who has seen so many boys entering the criminal justice system because the labels became a self-fulfilling prophecy, I wonder even those boys that do not enter that system who do quite good or well in terms of society, are they able to shake off the label?
I wonder about the many boys who obviously become men does that label become a sticking plaster hiding a wound so deep, most do not even know it?
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 studied Psycho-dynamic counselling from 1991 to 1993 at Goldsmiths College in London. 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.
She speaks fluent English and Urdu and basic German and French and is learning Arabic and Hebrew.
