Counselling Service Untitled Page

We want you to have a happy, successful time here at Anglia Ruskin. If you have any concerns – big or small – our counselling, chaplaincy and student advice services may be able to help.


We offer a free and fully confidential Counselling and Wellbeing Service to all current students. You can talk to us about anything that’s worrying you – from minor concerns to major issues, from grief to relationship difficulties, panic attacks, exam anxieties, stress and anything else.

Drop in to see us between 11am-12pm, Monday to Friday, at 2nd floor Tindal (Chelmsford) and HEL341 (Cambridge). Or make an appointment by calling us or using our online registration form.

If you can’t make it in to see us during opening times, you can use our out-of-hours Mental Health Matters helpline for telephone support from highly trained staff. This is available to all current Anglia Ruskin students between 5pm-9am weekdays and 24 hours on weekends and bank holidays.

Our Chaplaincy Service is here for you regardless of your religion or beliefs. You’re welcome to talk to us about anything:  life, family, religion, money, relationships and more. You’ll also find quiet rooms on campus which you can use for prayer, meditation or just relaxation.

We run a range of social events, awareness campaigns, and religious activities throughout the year; details at Anglia Ruskin Chaplaincy.

We also arrange International Community Experiences which include volunteer trips to Botswana and Ukraine.

Faculty Student Advice Service

If you’d like advice and guidance on your studies, speak to your Faculty Student Advisers. We’ll help you understand our University's modular system, rules and regulations, and deadlines. We can also refer you to other specialist advisers in the Student Services Team to talk about non-academic issues.

Our Faculty Student Advice Service supports all students at Anglia Ruskin, whether you’re full-time, part-time, undergraduate or postgraduate.
