Manuel is a counselling therapist, and counsellor. He lives, breathes to provide help to people in need. He has always felt a passion towards making people’s lives better. He’s most passionate about relationships, and how they can shape every other aspect of our lives, even things we don’t expect. When He’s not in his therapist’s chair, he writes papers and study, hoping to one day, have 2 PhD’s, ( crossing fingers). He’s also an avid, gamer, and tech enthusiast. He’s fascinated by the virtual worlds created through gaming, and the epic stories that can be told through this artform (yes, it is an artform). He also runs a small podcast about mental health called the Dear Friend Series, which initially was just a project, we wanted to do for fun, but when we realized, that people found value and guidance in what we did, it became its own thing. He just loves serving, and finding opportunities to help people, even though He’s steeply introverted. The appreciation, and happiness that He manages to gain from helping them, makes the world seem a little brighter, and a little nice. He has a lot of passions, like sports, fitness, and RPG’s. He just focus on making the most out of the time He was given. He’s not complicated, or overly intellectual. He’s just the type of person you can really have a good conversation with.

What you can expect from your first session:

I believe that therapy is not a one-sided affair, where all it is, is about removing an affliction or “sickness” from a client. I believe therapy and counseling is a conversation, a journey taken by the client and the therapist, to realize the client’s fullest and greatest potential. My method’s highlight the importance of self-compassion, awareness and understanding, that our struggles, our negative emotions, are not the enemy, but rather, a call for help from the deepest parts of ourselves we have learned to ignore. My methods simply do not overcome mental health issues, but manage and understand the process that make us feel what we feel. it is about shaping our working models, and our internalized perceptions, to manage our anxieties, our fears, and find more fulfillment in life. My program is designed to bring you emotional security, to finally understand the insatiable doubts, you’ve always had, and finally have some well-deserved peace. I understand that it must be very hard for you to seek help, I admire your courage to have taken this first step, but I’m also here to assure you, that everything you are, and what you were is valid, and I will always understand, the depth, and uniqueness that you have.
