Psychological counselling

In your daily life as a student you will find yourself faced with many challenges, not only academically but also personally. Some students may experience periods of difficulty, problems with concentration, feelings of being overwhelmed and/or anxiety. Support for such problems is available from our psychological counsellors. In a confidential setting, you can talk about study-related problems and areas of personal conflict. Your psychological counsellor will talk through your problems with you and help you to find solutions. Students can choose from individual counselling sessions and group sessions.

Counselling areas

As it is often difficult to separate between study-related issues and personal problems, our counselling services cover a broad range of areas. Common reasons for counselling include fear of exams and tests, chronic procrastination, difficulties with self-organisation, concentration problems, learning problems, frequent feelings of being overwhelmed, dissatisfaction with studies, chronic exhaustion, persistent depression, anxiety, recurrent conflicts in relationships, social difficulties, crisis situations and addiction problems. You can seek support from our counsellors at any time during your studies.

Individual counselling

During one or more sessions with a psychologist, you can talk about the difficulties you are currently experiencing. The discussions will focus on your problems and on finding individual solutions. If necessary, additional help also can be organised. Although we do not offer psychotherapy, we can provide information about suitable forms of therapy. Appointments can be easily arranged by email or telephone at relatively short notice.
