A women a day Edmonton - Shaheen Alarakhia

Meet counsellor and owner of Holistic Healing Counselling, Shaheen Alarakhia (@holistichealingcounselling). Shaheen found her life’s mantra in a quote when she was 15 years old in a book at her grandma’s.⁣ 

“There was a book of my grandma’s I was reading and one of the phrases said: “At the end of your life it is not what you achieved but what you have helped others to achieve that will matter.” Something just sort of clicked for me then, that my future legacy, the way that we all become immortal really, is by our impact on other people. In this way we create a ripple effect that keeps going long after we are gone. After that, I volunteered every opportunity I got; While travelling and teaching at market school in Kenya, being a Big Sister at the Big Brother and Sisters Society, or even now as a member of the Strathcona County Diversity Committee. During my early years of work, I came to the realization that my job didn’t prioritize my passion for helping others. That led me on a quest to pursue a career centred around helping others. And that’s why I’m a counsellor.⁣

Counselling is a truly breathtaking process. I can’t even describe what a privilege it is to get to know a person in a way they might not share with anyone else. I get to see people transform their lives, access their full potential, and move from surviving to thriving all by having an hour a week that makes them feel heard, understood, and safe. I always tell my clients, we are in this together. I know things about psychology, but they are the experts of their lives. And together, we are able to achieve something that neither of us could without the other. It makes me really excited to think of all the ripples that get created every time one of my client’s takes a step towards fulfilling their full potential.”⁣
