Psychological guidance

Need for guidance

As a student it is not every day a party: sometimes you have a lot on your mind or it is difficult to find your way.

Did you know that for any matter - no matter how small or 'innocent' it seems - you can go somewhere? So don't keep it bottled up!

Psychological guidance

Do you experience study-related or personal difficulties? Don't just keep them to yourself, even if it seems minor. Student psychologists are available to guide students who have gotten into a mess with their studies.

Training and individual coaching are free.

Can the student psychologists not or insufficiently guide you?

Then they can refer you to an external psychologist.

Allowance for psychological guidance

You can contact a student psychologist for psychological counseling. They are happy to help you on your way with the most appropriate support (individual guidance or group training).

If they cannot help you further, they will refer you to an external therapist.

You can request financial support for attending the external psychological counseling.
