About Our Space
Experience the unique combination of heritage, healing and tranquillity in the heart of the CDB.
Stepping from the bustling streets of Chinatown you will find yourself immersed in an oasis of peaceful, calm energy; delightfully convenient for healing, growth and balance.
We aim to provide private practitioners with the simple, flexible and accessible therapy rooms that are uniquely designed for discretion, professionalism and harmony.
Essence Rooms emerged from the realisation that many private practitioners prefer the flexibility of a dedicated space, without the long term commitment.
Peaceful. Discreet. Professional.
Essence Rooms prides itself as a centre that provides a professional and comfortable environment that meets the needs of both the consultant and their clients.
Created by and for mental health practitioners, Essence Rooms was set up by Dr Oberdan Marianetti after realising that many private practitioners prefer the flexibility of a dedicated space, without the long term commitments.
As a practicing counsellor Dr Oberdan understands from experience the importance of the right environment to create a warm, welcoming and healing experience for both clients and practitioners.
As a qualified Psychologist and Clinical Sexologist, Oberdan regularly uses Essence Rooms to successfully help individuals and couples rediscover the joy in their relationships and sex lives.
