During the first meeting we will try to understand your questions and needs. We will look at which issues are most important and check to see what kind of help would suit you best. Internal referrals (to another student counsellor) or external referrals (to a PSYNET psychotherapist) are also options.
PSYNET is a partnership among all student counsellors in the Antwerp University Association (AUHA) as well as several external psychotherapists. Some of these external PSYNET therapists also hold sessions in English.
Student counsellors often hear about a variety of both 'small' and 'big' problems from students. These include stress, sleepless nights, worrying, shyness, fear of failure, confidence issues, family problems, relationship problems, processing the death of a loved one, etc. If you feel that you have nowhere to turn, however desperate or banal your situation may seem, don't hesitate to make an appointment with a student counsellor.
You can make a appointment with a student counsellor of your campus at the Student Information Point (STIP).
