We aim to offer appropriate help as quickly and as conveniently as possible. For any enquiries or to make an appointment to see a counsellor you can:
Phone: 0151 291 3427
In Person: come along to the Student Development and Wellbeing (Gateway Building, First Floor) between 9.00am - 5.00pm Monday - Friday.
We also offer confidential one-to-one telephone or Skype appointments.
All students need to complete a confidential registration form prior to their first appointment. If you are interested in finding out more about confidentiality please go to our Frequently Asked Questions page.
We also operate daily drop-in sessions where students requiring urgent assistance can talk to a member of the Well-being Team. The drop-in times are as follows:
Monday: 12pm 2.00pm
Tuesday: 12pm- 2.00pm
Students requesting counselling are normally taken through a short initial assessment of need by one of our team. The assessment is conducted confidentially and involves us asking you a few questions and getting you to complete some paperwork. This process helps us to make a quick assessment of your current situation, lets you know a little more about what will happen next and also helps us decide whether you may require immediate assistance or support from another support service.
When you arrive in the service for your first appointment please let the administrator know you have arrived, and the counsellor will come out and meet you.
Please arrive at least five minutes before the time of your first appointment. If you are completing the registration form just before your appointment you'll need to allow yourself enough time to do this, so please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment.
If for any reason you are unable to keep an appointment, please contact our administrator on 0151 291 3427 as soon as possible to let us know. If you do not cancel your appointment, other students may be denied the opportunity of support when they most need it.
