Counselling service

If you have problems of a personal nature (rather than academic) the support staff in the Assessment and Student Support Centre (ASSC) in AMBSE/D14 can offer you advice and guidance.  It may be that they refer you to the University's Counselling Service where counsellors are trained to find the best way to help with a problem through a collaborative and sensitive discussion. If they can't help they may be able to point to other sources of professional or practical help. Their aim is to complement help from other sources be they friends, tutors or other support services.  The Service is strictly confidential.

The Counselling Service also provides workshops on subjects such as Exam Stress, Personal Development, Coping Better With Academic Pressures, Relaxation, Confidence Building and Self Esteem. Booking details are available through the Counselling Service.

Opening hours are 9.00 am - 4.00 pm Monday to Friday all year round except public holidays and during the University's Christmas closure period.  People are seen usually within a few days of making an appointment. To make an appointment or for any enquiries telephone 0161 275 28640161 275 2864, or call into the service, or e-mail counsel.service@manchester.ac.uk
