Shruti Jain, Existential Psychotherapist, MBACP, BSc.
About the Therapist
I work with individuals, couples, parent and child dyads, adolescents, and families through family systemic therapy. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore the reasons that brought you to therapy in the first place. By methodically listening, questioning and asking you to narrate your life story and experiences, she enables an environment where a firm therapeutic alliance can be built.
This therapist-client relationship will facilitate self-exploration and reflection; the predominant processes via which we are able to transform and make changes we would like to. As we move through this narration, we will uncover truths with an open mind and an attitude of wonder and curiosity, casting aside pre-existing diagnoses or labels to form a new perspective of ourselves.

As a therapist, I aim to create a space in which you can further your efforts of finding meaning in the face of challenges. You would work cautiously to enable: a larger awareness, reflection and control over your thoughts and actions, to confront internal challenges, as well as learn the impacts of external influences and how to manoeuvre through them. These can include societal pressures, cultural limitations, and familial influence amongst many others. In working existentially, I emphasize to my clients that I don't work with an agenda or pre-existing diagnoses, albeit maybe the One: You learn to make more wilful decisions about how to live, drawing on creativity, agency and love, instead of letting external forces or events determine your behaviour and relational patterns.
I work with all concerns that may bring you to therapy, be it anger management, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relationship issues, addictions, grief and loss, self-esteem, loneliness, sadness, and life coaching. These are just some examples. I have worked extensively with and feel my passion is working with grief and loss as it precipitates every aspect of our lives. Most recently, the pandemic has been a global experience in which humanity suffered exponential loss and many of us grieved over many issues such as isolation, loneliness, limitations/restrictions in living, physical space, and death; these are just some concerns amongst many others.
