About our counselling service

Counselling is a way for you to talk about your problems and to find new ways to cope. You will meet in a room with a qualified counsellor who will help you talk about your problems and the difficulties you have experienced in a safe, supportive and confidential environment.

How we can help you

Our service is free for anyone aged 15-25 who lives in Manchester and interpreters can be provided. Lots of people find counselling helpful.

Counselling can help you with the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Difficult life experiences
  • Panic attacks
  • Can’t cope
  • Low self-esteem
  • Hearing voices
  • Unwanted thoughts
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

We have also helped people who are coping with difficult things that have happened (eg having to leave home, the end of a relationship, bullying, bereavement and abuse).

Counselling is not about giving you advice or trying to persuade you round to the counsellors’ point of view, nor is it just a friendly chat discussing the week’s events as you would with a friend.

The counsellor tries to help you to understand yourself and others and will work to help you to find your own solutions.

Opening times

This service is currently being offered via telephone, email or video call. 

Our counsellors are here during the week – you can choose whether to come in the morning or afternoon or to one of our Monday evening appointments.

Our counselling service is based at CYP, 709 Stockport Rd in Levenshulme. To find out more about our counselling service call us on 0161 221 3054.  Our referral list is open.

To make a referral

I used to get panic attacks when I was with only three or four people. I gained so much confidence by coming to Manchester Mind that I was able to perform jujitsu in front of 1500 people at a competition. Imagine that!

Manchester Mind is still here for anyone who is struggling with their mental health, but now we need your support…

We have recently launched our Covid19 emergency food response appeal.

We are hoping to raise £10,000 so we can buy staple ingredients and equipment to provide over 1600 meals per week to those experiencing severe food poverty.

Every donation will help make a real difference to the most vulnerable people in Manchester.

Find out how you can get involved.
