About Lyn Taryn

Lyn Taryn is an Australian psychologist who has spent over 20 years in active practice as a generalist psychologist and counselor, dealing with a wide scope of normal human dilemmas as well as specializing in relationship challenges.

Over those years she has counseled thousands of people. So often there seemed to be a lack of understanding of core psychological principles and common patterns which accounted for much of their suffering. Explaining these clarified many of their dilemmas and helped them more effectively focus on where change was needed. She also noticed many people were using methods of Creative Imagination ineffectively due to confused understandings. Many also wanted to know more about 'what made them tick' or who they were - but didn't know how to start a process of self-development. These needs formed the impetus for her book 'Tales from the Known Kingdoms: Adventures in Self-Understanding'.

Lyn obtained her psychology qualifications from Melbourne University in 1973. She also has a 'Certificate in Couples Therapy' through Relationships Australia and have done the basic training in relationship counseling of the eminent Gottman Institute in the USA. She has a 'Certificate in Grief Counseling' (Australian Centre for Grief & Bereavement) as well as Diplomas in 'Ericksonian Hypnosis' and 'Solution-Oriented Counseling' and 'Solution-Oriented Psychotherapy' (Centre of Effective Therapy). Lyn also holds Certificates in 'Critical Incident Management', 'Post Traumatic Stress Disorder', 'EFT' (Emotional Freedom Technique),'EMDR' (Eye Movement Desensitization Response) and 'Reiki' 1&2. She has also regularly attended workshops by local and international experts. Some of these have included training from Dr Michael Yapko, internationally renowned expert in depression, Advanced CBT (Prof. Menzies),'Healing from Family Rifts' (Mark Sichel), 'Sexual Desire Differences' (Dr Rosie King, Interpersonal Psychotherapy and Verbally Abusive Relationships (Patricia Evans).

Lyn is a longtime member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS). She was an early member of their Transpersonal Psychology Interest group and has been interested in exploring the Self beyond the usual psychological context. She has been actively been exploring the field of self growth for over 20 years.
