Counselling

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

University life can sometimes be very demanding at times. The reasons for this can range from a heavy workload and imminent deadlines, to relationship problems and difficulties of a personal nature. Student Counselling provides an opportunity to discuss any difficulties you may be experiencing in your life with a professionally trained person in a confidential environment.

Counselling can equip you with new ways to think about an issue or problem you may be experiencing while helping you to manage things better and feel more in control. Our Counsellors work in a non-judgemental way, respecting your values and beliefs and with the aim of offering you the best opportunity to change things for the better.
