Counselling in Croydon Hills

In April 2023, MGA Counselling Services, incorporating Forest Therapy Victoria and Nature Play 4 Kids, moved back to where it all began – the bushy surrounds of Croydon Hills.

Named after the eucalypt native to the area, the Manna Gum Studio comprises of a counselling space suitable for individuals, couples and small groups, plus small bathroom and kitchenette areas.

It’s proximity to the Narr-Maen wetlands means that sessions can be held outside on request (weather permitting).

Please note there is no waiting room at Croydon Hills, so please text your counsellor on arrival and wait for a reply before entering.

Planning is underway for a mindful garden to help with learning emotional regulation skills and nature based mindful practice.

Suburbs within a ten kilometre radius include Croydon North, Warranwood, Croydon, Mooroolbark, Ringwood North, Chirnside park, Wonga Park, Warrandyte South, Croydon South, Kilsyth, Ringwood East, Park Orchards, Ringwood, Bayswater North, Warrandyte, Kilsyth South, North Warrandyte, Heathmont, Lilydale, Montrose, Bayswater, Donvale, Bend of Islands, Mount Evelyn and Boronia.

The Manna Gum Studio can be accessed from Croydon Station or Ringwood Station via bus route 380.

There are four steps to the front door of the Manna Gum Studio, so disability access is limited.
