Emad Seyed Sadr is a Registered Clinical Counsellor located in Vancouver, BC. He provides counselling in person, online and by phone for anxiety, depression, life transitions, gender identity, grief, loss and suicide. He offers 50 minutes individual counselling sessions for adults in French and English.
Emad uses a strength-based, solution-focused approach. He provides a safe, nurturing, judgement-free and accountable space for all, regardless of the presenting issues. His practice is founded on the belief that people are not their “problems”, and that they are greater than the sum of the events in their lives. Counselling sessions with Emad focus on strengths, abilities and core values that resist and defy presenting “problems”. Ultimately, the counselling journey will focus on exploring, establishing and connecting with preferred outcomes brought forth throughout the sessions.
Emad obtained a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University, as well as a Master of Science from McGill University. His work with community-based resources emphasize his passion for helping all those in need, while his experience in cancer research and suicide prevention highlight his willingness to explore taboo and difficult subjects.
His office is located in South Granville, Vancouver, British Columbia, close to Richmond, Surrey, Burnaby, as well as West Vancouver and North Vancouver. It can be reached by car and public transportation. For those traveling by car, metered parking spots are available around the office.
