Meet Fike Njini.
I have a Masters of Social Work from the University of Ryerson. I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, and the Ontario Association of Social Workers. I have experience as an ethical and empathetic professional with solid academic training and excellent counselling experience.
As a highly skilled, solution focused and strength based therapist, my approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long standing patterns of behavior.With sensitivity and compassion and empathy, I assist clients to find solutions to life challenges and psycho-social issues. I use a variety of methods which will help each client in building the strength to identify and achieve their desired goals. I am dedicated to help my clients develop coping skills, providing support and insight that will enable them to manage life's difficult challenges.
I also have a great deal of experience helping individuals with chronic and/or problematic substance use through counseling and those who have concurrent mental health diagnosis using various intervention strategies including CBT. I have experience working with people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
My specialties include:
Depression & anxiety
Grief & loss
Trauma & abuse (domestic abuse and survivors of domestic abuse)
I believe in people's strengths and capabilities. I help clients realise their own strengths in achieving their desired goals. My approach is client centred and strengths based while valuing very much each client as a unique individual, who deserves to be treated with compassion and respect. I offer a safe, friendly and supportive environment to my client. I believe in fostering a strong working relationship with my clients as we work together to heal emotional wounds.
I am very compassionate, and flexible in my sessions. Even though I use various approaches, I work with where my client is at, letting them become the experts to their problems and helping them develop and come up with methods and eventually finding solutions to their issues.We work together to develop a working planning that will see clients develop understanding of their own strengths into achieving goals that will lead to living meaning full and rewarding lives.
On a personal note some of my interests include, watching TV, taking long walks, dancing reading. I enjoy time with friends and family. I think it is important to spend time doing things that you love and being around people who make you feel good and build you up.
