Counsellor, MSc, ACA-L2 Verified
Bentleigh, VIC 3204
My name is Mayerling, and I was born in Caracas, Venezuela. It is a beautiful country in South America, and it is currently going through difficult times. From an early age, I knew I wanted to help people and decided to study psychology. In 2007, I graduated from university and emigrated to Argentina. I started working with children and teenage victims of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. One of my main duties was providing group and individual counselling to the children and teenagers living in foster homes. After that, I worked for the Justice Department in the Office of Mediation.

PLEASE NOTE I DO NOT OFFER MEDICARE REBATE SESSIONS. Life can feel like a roller coaster at times. You want to take charge of your life, but you don't know where to start. Panic, anxiety or numbness takes over your life, and you feel that no one understands you. You either get angry or shut down, neither of which help you get where you need to be. By working with me, you will gain greater understanding and awareness of your experiences and your emotions. I will help you be the driver of your life, together we will untangle the stuff that holds you back, keeps you stuck and feeling helpless.

What method of counselling is right for me?

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues.

Can I afford counselling?
