If you feel that one or more life issues are getting in the way of your study progress, you may be eligible to visit one of the student psychologists. Topics that can be discussed with the student psychologist include the following:
- Depressive complaints
- Anxiety issues like:
- Fear of Failure
- Social anxiety
- Fear of public speaking
- Problems related to autism or ADHD
- Negative thoughts about yourself / low self-esteem
- Problems with assertiveness
- (Study) Stress related issues
- Personal circumstances (e.g. the death of someone close to you or relationship problems)
You can make an individual appointment directly via the link below. During the intake interview we will make an assessment of your complaints and what help you need for this. Depending on the issues you present and your request for help, after the intake interview there are a number of options:
- A one-off consultation
- Short-term counseling (up to five sessions)
- Participation in one of our courses
- A Referral (you will be referred via your GP for external support)
The student psychologist will think of referring you for external support in the event of:
- Addiction problems
- Eating disorders
- When complaints or issues are urgent or serious, for example in the case of suicidality
- Self-harm / auto mutilation
- Recurrent complaints for which previous treatment has not been sufficiently effective
- There is a need for further psychological or diagnostic assessment
As student psychologists, we are well informed about external agencies and practices that are able to offer further support. We can help you find the right help, eventually your general practitioner will have to refer you directly.
If you are already wondering if more intensive psychological support is warranted, we would strongly advise you to contact your general practitioner directly.
You can make an individual appointment directly via the following link:
