About MHA

We are on a mission

At our core, we believe in providing unwavering support and respect for those battling mental health. Our goal is to break the stigma around mental health, empower individuals with guidance and increase awareness. We are here to provide assistance and support to anyone who may require it. We won't stop until we achieve our mission.

What is counselling?

During periods of distress or any particularly challenging phase in an individual's life, counselling can assist in exploring matters causing concern or anxiety within a confidential environment, free from judgement.

There are many counselling approaches; at MHA all of our counsellors offer Humanistic Counselling. 

  • In our Adult Counselling Projects this takes the form of Person-Centred Counselling. 
  • Our Youth Services operate on an age-appropriate Relational Approach often using resources to support young people to explore their thoughts, feelings and experiences. 
  • Our counsellors believe that we all have the potential to grow and change. The relationship between counsellor and client is of primary importance in order for clients to decide their own way forward.
