Counselling

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 student counselling is to attend a Well-being Drop-in. The drop-in sessions are available via Zoom video call or telephone, Monday to Friday between 12-2 pm, during term-time. The drop-ins provide students with the opportunity to speak briefly with a mental well-being professional. If during the drop-in it is identified that you would benefit from ongoing counselling, then an initial consultation session will be arranged for you.  

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

*Please note that a limited number of drop-in sessions are provided each day and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
