Barbara Madani, Registered Psychologist has provided counseling and psychotherapy for over 30 years and is located in Vancouver. She has practiced in settings as diverse as schools, hospitals and universities. Barbara has also served on the Ethics Committee and as an Oral Examiner for the College of Psychologists.
Barbara understands what a struggle life can be when you believe, “ I’m not good enough”, “I’m not loveable” “I’m not in control” “I have to be perfect”. She realizes that it can be equally difficult to have existential concerns. There is something missing in your life but you can’t quite define it.
Whether life has thrown you a curve ball or you are progressing on a journey of personal growth, Barbara provides a safe and accepting space to explore, experience and re-frame overwhelming emotions such as: anxiety, depression, despair, and grief. While she knows that suffering is a part of life, staying stuck is not the only option.
Often accompanying negative emotions are those faulty self-referencing beliefs ( e.g. “I “m damaged, powerless, ugly, weak) downloaded onto our emotional hard-rive from early childhood or from traumatic experiences. These are reduced or eliminated through creative therapy techniques and resources. Barbara is experienced in the most recent “power therapies” and is an Approved Consultant in EMDR.
As the effects of trauma are minimized and self-esteem is restored, Barbara’s clients begin to experience themselves as unique and powerful. She assists clients to view therapy as a collaborative process with solutions emerging from the highlighting of client’s needs aligned with trust in the therapist.
