Our therapists meet students every day and have long experience treating students with mild mental health problems. There are a number of reasons why students seek help from us, but some of the most common challenges students face are heavy and draining thoughts, anxiety, depression, self-esteem and relations to other people.

When should I get in touch with a student life adviser?

The student experience consists of both ups and downs, and it’s perfectly normal to go through periods with a fluctuating mood. When these situations arise, it can be nice to talk to a neutral person. If you experience this, we can recommend to get in touch with one of our advisors before you contact us.

Common themes are stress, structure in everyday life, heartbreak, loneliness and so on. Our advisers are bound by confidentiality and if they see that there is a need for further follow-ups, they will discuss this with you and can help you to get in touch with other, suitable health services.
