Each student has individual time and space to chat and explore in depth the situation that is impacting their mood and/or well-being. It is a safe space, where the person's values, choices and lifestyle are respected.

Does seeing a psychologist mean I have a mental illness?
Having a meeting with a psychologist does not mean that you have a mental disorder or illness.

There is no right or wrong way to communicate. It is totally normal if you feel insecure when it comes to sharing your feelings, thoughts or emotions. It is a space where you will not be judged, your times will be respected. What you say will depend entirely on you. The psychologist will be there to help you in the process.
Are the meetings confidential?
Psychologists work under a Code of Ethics, which means they must tell you about the limits of confidentiality and then abide by these rules. To find out what particular circumstances may imply an exception to the confidentiality rules, you can consult the team.
Can I choose to be served by a man or a woman?
The support service is made up entirely of women, who, regardless of their gender or sex, provide professional care. However, we make available to students a document with referrals to psychology professionals of various specializations where they can satisfy their needs if they wish.
How many times will I need to go?
It is impossible to predict exactly what number of students will attend a single meeting and how many will attend more.
What can I expect from a first meeting?

You will receive a clear explanation of what our counseling and psychological services consist of, as well as the limits of confidentiality to which we adhere. You will receive competent and professional advice based on respect.
As appropriate, alternative referral options to professional psychological services outside the Unit will be provided.
