Making an appointment with a counsellor

For all information, inquiries or to make an appointment, please phone 09 968 8072 or email counsellors@manukau.ac.nz You can also drop into the Counselling team offices between the hours of 8.30am-4.30pm to make an appointment. If you don’t have an appointment but need to see a counsellor urgently, we will arrange a time as soon as possible.

The counselling team understand that sometimes it can be difficult to get in our Counselling team office for a session, so we can instead offer counselling sessions via phone. As with all our counselling sessions, these are free and confidential.
