Psychosocial Counselling

Our goal is for you to be able to study successfully, without any worries. But life doesn’t always run smoothly. The demands placed on students are high. Problems faced by students on a day-to-day basis and personal difficulties may become a serious challenge.

In situations like these, we – the Counselling Centre team – are there for you. This is where you can get individual counselling. In strict confidence.
