Liverpool Hope University provides a confidential, professional student counselling service to help you with any personal issues that may be affecting your studies, self-esteem, relationships, or general feelings of well-being.

To find out more about the Student Counselling Service here at Hope, read our Counselling leaflet.

How to access student counselling

The first step to accessing counselling is to attend a well-being drop-in. These are brief daily drop-in sessions via Zoom video call, telephone, or in-person and take place during term-time, Monday to Friday, 12-2pm. The drop-in sessions last around 20 minutes and are ideal for general enquiries and issues that can be addressed reasonably quickly.

To access a drop-in, contact Student Development and Well-being on the morning you wish to access a drop-in and a member of the team will arrange things for you.
