Please phone 0161 275 2864 and ask for another appointment with your counsellor.

We are open from 9am - 4pm, Monday to Friday. If you want to reschedule or cancel your appointment please ring the service on 0161 275 2864.

We always offer the earliest appointments available but, at certain times of the year, we experience especially high demand and waiting times for appointments can increase.

How to find us

We are located on the fifth floor of Crawford House (Builidng #31 on the campus map) at the junction of Oxford Road and Booth Street East. Enter Crawford House at street level via the Central & West Entrance on Booth Street East.

What is an appointment like?

Your first appointment with a counsellor will be an opportunity for you to say what is causing you difficulty and what you would like to be different.

You might already have an idea of what you would like from counselling or you may find that your counsellor helps you to focus on what you would like to work on or how you would like certain things to change.

Together with your counsellor, you will be able to work out what is the best way to begin to tackle your problems. Issues you might discuss could include:

  • How many times and how frequently you might meet for individual counselling sessions;
  • What may be best worked on in a workshop or group:
  • Which aspects can be helped by using our self-help tools;
  • What can be done to help straight away and what may take some time.
