Manuela Mangiafico - MBACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist
19 Nassau Street
Hi, my name is Manuela, and I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor (MBACP)
I work with individuals providing CBT and time-limited solution focused therapy (6 to 12 session) as well as long term therapy by offering a safe and non judgemental space to help my clients overcome a range of mental, emotional and interpersonal struggles.
I provide counselling across a range of issues and have specialised in working with bereavement, alcohol dependence, anger management, depression, general anxiety and social anxiety.
I am able to work with you by tailoring therapy to your specific needs using a set of counselling skills and psycho-therapeutic techniques to enable us to work in creating awareness and understanding to find solutions for the issues you are experiencing.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
An initial assessment meeting will allows us to get to know each other but more so it will help you to discover if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask any question, understand confidentiality and to determine what is the best therapeutic approach you could benefit from.
To find how we can work together to support you with the challenges that have brought you to therapy, do get in touch by using a contact option to book an introductory assessment session with me.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT concentrates on how your thoughts ( cognition) influences your emotions and action (behaviours) It identifies and challenges unhelpful thoughts which maintain the problem you encounter in the here and now. the objective of CBT is to bring about behavioural change by having a positive impact on your thoughts and feelings ans emotions.
Counselling concerns on listening to you and supporting you in exploring what matter determines your current moods. The aim of counselling is to provide a secure environment to enable you to talk and explore early years and how these are of impact to your adulthood to eventually discover a solution that feel right for you.
Psychotherapy focuses on you, and in you gaining insight into the difficulty you are currently facing. It considers your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and beliefs and relevant moment in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change on discover appropriate ways of managing relationship and social skills.
