Do you have challenges in your day-to-day life?

The Faculty of Social Sciences offers a free counselling service which is available to all students on bachelor or master programs at the faculty. This gives you the opportunity to talk to an experienced student from the clinical psychology program.


Should you encounter any challenges, your wellbeing and sense of accomplishment could decrease. This counselling service is not meant as a treatment, but a low-threshold service where you can talk about your challenges, or concerns about plans and wishes for the future. The goal is to increase your sense of accomplishment and wellbeing in everyday life.

You’ll be able to meet your counsellor up to three times. Each session lasts for up to one hour. This service is free of charge.
