At Clarity Counselling Northern Beaches, our ethos is to help you talk, heal and grow. We provide a warm, welcoming environment and offer our counselling services to people from all backgrounds.

Confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us and we pride ourselves on offering a safe space for discussion on a variety of life’s challenges at our Manly counselling space. 

“Life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.”




Established in 2019, Clarity Counselling Northern Beaches has become holistic counselling practice offering a variety of services. The practice was started as an accessible and affordable option to people looking for counselling on the beaches.

In 2020, three Counsellors joined Clarity Counselling, enabling a wider choice for people and an extensive range in skills and experience. In 2021, Clarity Counselling Northern Beaches expanded and collaborated with the NSW government to offer Victims Services Counselling. There was also the addition of an in-house Clinical Nutritionist and MyoFacial Body Therapist, further enhancing our holistic approach. We have held over 120 sessions that have helped resolve trauma, build relationships, and improve well-being, amongst various other benefits.

As a practice, we are continuously looking to enhance and improve our practice and explore new types of therapy such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

At Clarity Counselling, we are always open to exploring new opportunities that may benefit our client's. If you would like to collaborate, please get in touch with us for a chat.

Meet The Team - Our Counsellors

Sarah Counsellor Manly


Hi, I’m Sarah. I specialise in a holistic approach of the wellbeing of mind, body, and spirit. The nervous system can be calmed to create less reactivity to stress in our environment (Polyvagal Theory). Using this framework, I look forward to working closely with you to overcome your unique challenges and create a new journey of self-awareness, confidence, and positivity.

Rocio Counsellor Manly


I am a social worker and psychotherapist. My therapeutic approach is warm and caring, collaborative & individualised in response to each person’s unique needs. I believe the foundation for a good therapeutic relationship is based on empathy and respect and relate to my clients in a non-judgmental, supportive, and positive way. I use light-hearted and creative ways to assist my clients to feel comfortable and safe in sessions.

I offer each client my full commitment and genuine care combined with many years of clinical experience as a counsellor. It is my priority to establish a safe environment where I
can help you with issues such as substance abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety and personality disorders.
Therapy is about healing the psychological pain that prevents one from living a full life. The past cannot be changed, but it does not have to impact your present or future. 

Sophie Counsellor Manly


My approach is compassionate, person-centred and collaborative. I use various techniques, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and Trauma-Informed Therapy. I have a social work background and have worked with people affected by trauma and neglect. I have experience working with a variety of ages, male and female.
