Hello and welcome to
My Therapist website
My name is Mario and I offer psychotherapy and counselling services online and in person in Manchester.
People come to therapy for a variety of different reasons. Some are feeling anxious, stressed, or worried about something. Some are feeling upset, distressed, broken-hearted, or depressed. Others might feel that something has gone wrong in their life, have regrets, feel stuck, or have lost direction, and meaning in life. Whatever the reason, sometimes we all find ourselves stuck. Sometimes we go around in circles, unable to sort out troubles and worries alone. Getting help from a trained and supportive professional is often an important step towards change.
I offer a safe, non-judgmental, accepting, and supportive space to talk about what is going on for you. Therapy is a space for you to understand and make sense of your experiences. This is the space to discover what holds you back and enables you to change old patterns, make new decisions and find new ways of approaching, and overcoming your difficulties.
I am very passionate about mental health. Many people struggle to understand their own personal psychology and it causes them to be afraid, suppresses them, and limits their capabilities. I have been there myself.
I am currently working online and in my private practice at the Manchester Institute Wellbeing Centre in Chorlton, Manchester.
What Clients Have Said
I give each client an opportunity to re-examine their path in life. Clients who finish sessions with me come away satisfied and with an improved mindset in managing challenges and pursuing goals. I take pride in reading my clients’ testimonials and learning how I’ve helped to change their outlook on life. Check out some of their experiences below and contact me to add yours!
“Mario is an excellent therapist. Through weekly sessions, he helped me find my way through a period of darkness and confusion, giving me the tools and self-awareness to really understand myself and rebuild my life. He is warm, caring and compassionate and really listens. His approach to therapy is open and client-led. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”
'Mario was recommended to me by my previous counsellor who was retiring. Beginning with a new counsellor could be quite problematic (for both parties !) particularly after having had a longstanding relationship with the previous one. However after a couple of sessions I felt we had already developed an empathy which has helped me immensely in dealing with my ‘stuff’! Thank you, Mario.'
Support That Makes a Difference
The basis of my work is to facilitate self-growth. Through regular meetings, together we will identify core difficulties that stop you from living your life to the fullest. We will begin to explore the roots of the problems and gain a new perspective on life.
The therapeutic process I offer gives an opportunity for mental growth. It does not, however, give a set of instructions, nor does it provide quick answers. It involves a process of discovery and it is intended to increase mental capacity and strengthen emotional freedom. This itself leads to better resourcefulness and ability to manage the demands, challenges, and risks of having an autonomous and fulfilling life.
