The University Psychological

Counselling Centre

The counselling centre is here for all those interested in finding psychological or pedagogical help. At the same time, however, the counselling centre is not a clinical workplace (it does not substitute the care of a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist). In case the client’s issue would exceed competence, experience or time possibilities of our advisors, we will help you to find the proper help.
