Manuela Fernandez, Counsellor in Melbourne

What is keeping you from your goals? Is there anything getting in the way of attaining satisfying relationships? Do you feel as if there is a cloud over you that hinders your personal and career growth? Whether you’re suffering from depression, anxiety, or are simply seeking greater self-awareness, counselling can help you achieve the healthy mental state that you’ve been seeking. As a mental health counsellor in Elwood, Melbourne, I can work with you to find out what really needs to change. If you’re looking to work on yourself to address issues that come up repeatedly in your life, then through therapy, I can create a safe space to look for holistic solutions. Using a mix of evidence-based therapies and integrated techniques, together, we can work to change your habits, beliefs, and behaviour. In my native Chile, I am a registered psychologist and can bring all of the benefits of psychology to my practice. In Melbourne, I am a counsellor in Australia, as well as a Reiki master. I speak English and Spanish and practice in Elwood.

  • She helped me to find some issues that I didn’t know, her personality and professionalism made me feel free and comfortable to explain myself. Since that day I am following her pieces of advice, I strongly recommend to take therapy with her.

  • It didn’t take long for me to feel comfortable and open myself up to Manuela. For someone that had never considered this type of service, I was very surprised with the results. I can honestly say it put things into perspective and transformed the way I approach different scenarios.

  • I came to Manuela at one of the final stages of a long lasting process. Her help was crucial during this closing and it made me able to start building myself up again. She is 100% human, empathic, professional and fully compromised with what she does.

  • In a very complicated period of my life, where it was almost impossible to see a light at the end of the road, I met Manuela, who is an exceptional psychologist, good professional, attentive and understanding. Without a doubt, I would not have been in better hands. A pleasure to have been your patient of which I will always be very grateful. I recommend it to everyone!
