Registered Counsellor

Mariane Fernando

Languages Spoken:

I am a qualified and registered Counsellor, with experience working for both government and not-for-profit organisations. I am also trained by Transgender Victoria and have been guiding and assisting people who face challenging situations in their life. I work part time as the Victorian Development Officer/Coordinator/volunteer facilitator for Rainbows for the Children of Australia, a not-for-profit charity. I certainly do not rely solely on qualifications and work experience, but apply and draw upon my personal and life experiences that will make you feel connected, safe, genuinely heard and understood, thus creating an environment for us to work together and give you the best quality outcomes. Each person is unique and requires an individual approach in meeting his or her specific needs. For this reason, I am not locked into any one particular counselling approach or technique but tailor my approach or combination of approaches that will always depend on you as a unique individual, and give you the tools to grow and work toward self-fulfillment. I use counselling therapies and techniques that include Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT), person-centered, Solution Focused, mindfulness and Strengths based therapeutic approaches. I am respectful of people’s faith and more than happy to work with people from different cultures and backgrounds. My counselling service is available at different locations.
