Manuela Herrera BA, MSc, MBPsS
Welcome! I'm Manuela, a licensed Counseling Psychologist (Reg. #633), currently based in Cyprus, but working with clients throughout Europe and the Americas.
I completed my undergraduate degree at Sarah Lawrence College (NY, USA), before continuing my studies and professional development in the UK, where I worked in both research settings and within the NHS. Having completed my Masters in Counseling Psychology at the University of Nicosia (Cyprus), I now offer psychological services to clients all over the world, both in person and via online therapy.
My aim is to provide empathetic, evidenced-based psychological services that cater to your needs. In my 15 years of experience working in the mental health field, I've come to use an integrative approach, with elements of CBT and person-centred therapy, in order to help others dealing with challenging life experiences. I believe genuineness, acceptance and empathy lie at the heart of good therapy and that's what I intend to provide for you as my client.
I offer bilingual services in English and Spanish.
Please scroll down for further details about my qualifications and experience, or just contact me to find out more.
“I prefer to think of my patients and myself as fellow travelers, a term that abolishes distinctions between 'them' (the afflicted) and 'us' (the healers). ... We are all in this together, and there is no therapist and no person immune to the inherent tragedies of existence.”
