Jayn Rajandran's bio

This content was provided by Jayn Rajandran "Jayn believes that therapy does not have to be an arduous process. It should be fun when it's filled with an eagerness on the clients' end to get over the hurdle that they are currently facing, so that they can go back out there and enjoy the life that they were born to live. Individuals - Therapy is extremely focused and in most cases, clients are able to discharge from therapy within 3-6 months, especially if it's a life transition problem. Some clients are in treatment for a longer period, due to severe trauma, abuse or mental health symptoms, attached to the roadblocks faced. There are clients who seek therapy not because they necessarily have something that they need to work on; They like the idea of going to a neutral place on a weekly basis and unloading i.e. to get things out of their system. They like brainstorming ideas, listening to themselves think out loud, having a neutral person play devil's advocate, working on strategies, life skills or even looking at repetitive behavioral patterns. Other clients report that they enjoy an on-going weekly sessions, as it gives them a place to take care of their emotional needs, so that they do not burden their friends and family members with issues. This then allows them to be there emotionally and physically for their loved ones. Teenagers - This is an amazing age group to work with as they tend to come across as extremely angry. Anger is often called a secondary emotion as it's resorted to, in order to protect one's self from or to cover up other vulnerable feelings. A primary feeling is a feeling that is felt immediately before the anger. In addition to that, depression tends to come across as irritability, anger and/or frustration in teens. Many times parents miss the depression by focusing on behavioral issues expressed. This is usually not the case as the teen is merely struggling to communicate that they are extremely depressed or anxious and tend to resort to self-harm behaviors. The work that is done with teens are in collaboration with their family members so that everyone is involved in the treatment, to sustain the changes. In addition to individual and family work, it is helpful for teens to know that they are not the only ones who are experiencing this. Thus, there is a teen group that they can participate in, on a weekly basis. Couples - When couples come in and genuinely want to work on improving their partnership, Jayn does not start the treatment by focusing on the past or on what did not work, after the assessment. The work starts with putting in place immediate changes that needs to be adhered to on a daily basis, that produces positive results. The couple are 'banned' from speaking about the past, for a few weeks, during this phase. In the second phase, new skills and tools are taught with a lot of role playing, to instill them. Couples find this phase extremely enlightening and are usually keen to keep trying the new skills outside of the sessions. In the third phase, after couples feel encouraged and feel that the changes are working, then the work on the past and what did not work is started. Jayn's style is to be a supportive and collaborative partner with her clients, to help them use their own self-leadership to find creative and lasting solutions to life's challenges. This stems from her deep belief that people possess an amazing innate ability to heal and find their own answers. However, sometimes people may be stuck in old patterns or may have a difficult time discovering new ways of thinking or being. With sensitivity, compassion and a strength-based / solution focused, holistic approach, she guides her clients to find and utilize their own inner wisdom to get unstuck and achieve their life goals. With her skillful guidance she helps people to embody their emotions and to truly work with the physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of their issues."
