At MGA, we recognize that relationships come in all shapes and sizes. We also know that every relationship needs some extra support and encouragement from time to time for it to remain at its best.

Our relationship counselling is individualized for your unique needs, and focuses on increasing the listening and assertiveness skills within your relationship. For relationships in conflict situations we may ask to meet with each person individually for a number of sessions before meeting together.

Mental Health

At MGA we recognise that depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues, will touch the lives of all of us at some point. For some, the experience will be direct and life will seem like it is shrouded in thick fog. For others, it will be a loved one that suffers, and they will be left feeling confused and helpless.

If you’re concerned about your own mental health, or of somebody you love, make a time to speak with one of the MGA counsellors and start moving towards “life to the full”.

Sexuality & Gender Identity

Sexuality is a confusing and contentious issue. Arguments have dominated the fields of religion and politics in recent times about what is right and what is good, with little regard for the people who have genuine questions or desire for help. For transgendered and intersex people, it can be even more difficult.

At MGA, we are committed to providing friendly, non-judgmental and well informed therapy and support to people of all sexualities and genders, in all types of relationships.

Trauma, Grief and Loss

When we lose something that is very special to us, we grieve. We can grieve over the loss of a pet that has been a close friend for many years. We can grieve over the loss of our health, or our job. Most often we grieve when somebody who is very precious to us has died.

Grief is a normal human emotion. There is no ‘right’ way to grieve, but grieving should not be stopped or hindered.  At MGA we will help you talk about and come to terms with your grief as you adjust to ‘the new normal’.
