Dr. Celi’s professional background and qualifications
A philosophy of quality living
Quality living is the guiding philosophy behind Dr. Celi’s work. The media and some parts of society can often present gender issues in a combative way, as if relationships between men and women are a ‘war zone’.
When Dr. Celi began her focus on men’s wellbeing, she wanted her research and education to stem from a more positive and less divisive place. This is how the concept of quality living came to inform all aspects of her work.
The philosophy behind quality living is not anti-feminist, but it is alternative to some feminism. We recognise that addressing men’s needs, roles and relationships has not always played a significant part in feminist theory or practise and we strongly believe that it is time to redress this gap.
DrCeli.com.au is a website and resource centre established to promote and improve quality of life for all men. Informed by the quality living philosophy, it respects men for who they are and aims to meet men on their own terms, assisting them to fulfil their lives in the best way possible.
Dr. Celi’s advocacy through media and supporting men’s health coaches continues to raise awareness and keep productive discussion moving forward for men’s health and men’s quality of life.
Together we all continue to keep men and women accountable to proactively respecting healthy masculinity for what that means for the 21st century way of living.
Respecting manhood, healthy mentoring of young boys and respectful relationships that go both ways in recognizing the strength of our differences and the connection of our similarities.
