I’m Fazeena Haniff, The Conscious Communicator. I’m a communication expert with 20 years of experience, a board-certified master coach, speaker, consultant, intuitive, and facilitator of challenging conversations.

When kids my age were talking about having dreams of becoming a doctor, astronaut, actor, or athlete, I talked about communication.

I earned my Honours B.A. in Economics and Communication Studies and then went on to further my studies with a Post-Graduate Certificate in Corporate Communications. I took my training, determination and passion and turned it into a successful career as a communication specialist, advising and coaching senior leaders on all kinds of communication matters. Known for my ability to connect with others with ease and bring people together to achieve win-win solutions, I was awarded the Collaboration Award in my last organizational role.

I started my coaching and consulting practice to shed light on how disempowering societal, cultural, and family dynamics impact communication in personal and professional settings and have facilitated change for individuals through 1:1 and group coaching programs, workshops, and public speaking.

As a woman of colour navigating the corporate space and being born into a family and culture with intergenerational colonial trauma, I know the unique challenges and fears of what it means to find and use voice in both personal and professional settings.

Being witness to a tragic car accident as a child taught me to suffer in silence in a culture that didn’t hold space for emotional processing and difficult conversations. It wasn’t until I found myself at a breaking point decades later that I learned to recognize the impact of adverse childhood experiences and the childhood influences of society, culture and family on a person’s ability to communicate as an adult – something our traditional communication models don’t take into account.

I studied coaching and became certified through an intensive training program through Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching, and went on to further my coaching training by becoming a Board-Certified Master Coach and Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy™ and Hypnotherapy, and the Quantum Change Process™. I most recently completed the Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy certificate program with The Embody Lab.

I hold a unique position of combining my many years of professional training and entrepreneurial and organizational experience in communication with my unique ability to see unconscious patterns that impact a person’s ability to communicate, which have equipped me to facilitate powerful breakthroughs for my clients.

I’ve built a diverse and inclusive practice serving clients of all intersectionalities and backgrounds, and take pride in helping organizations build sustainable foundations to do so as well.

Now, let’s see how best I can serve you!
