Cecilia Mannella

In keeping with a collaborative approach to counselling, I believe that people have the ability to live the life they want, and change is always possible. Counselling is not about getting advice from a counsellor on how to live your life but more about being asked different types of questions that help you discover the answers that fit and work for you and guide you to the life you dream about.


Self-discovery and personal change can be a scary place to enter alone. Counselling is a safe place where we build a relationship together so that you are not doing the work alone. I also believe that smiles and laughter are key ingredients for happiness and can light the way towards solutions for even the darkest, most difficult of problems.

I'm passionate about....

I’m a bookworm – on my days off, you will typically find me engrossed in a new book or listening to audiobooks while I drive. I take lifelong learning to heart and try to read as much as possible.

I’m an avid podcast listener – I find it a great way to learn new things, hear about new research, find new experts in interesting fields, and honestly, I always learn something new.


Learning new research and sharing it in my practice lights my heart on fire – I have been gifted with an incredible memory for random facts, which I find incredibly useful in counselling. The world is constantly changing, and new research and approaches are constantly being shared – I love integrating new ideas and ways of understanding the human condition.
