We offer material to get you started by yourself. If you feel like you can use more support, you can follow a training in a large or small group or make an appointment for individual counseling. More details about the range of services of the student psychologists can be found on Blackboard. Or contact STIP!
If you prefer to work autonomously and at your own pace, you can use the workbooks of the student psychologists or the digital platform 'Studying without Worrying'. You can request additional support from a student psychologist at any time.
Would you rather receive help in person? In small groups of students, the student psychologists organize tips & tricks sessions and workshops on various themes, both online and on campus (only in Dutch): dealing with stress, fear of failure or procrastination. Tips & tricks are single sessions that are mainly aimed at providing information. Workshops, on the other hand, take place several times in a small group of the same students, and besides informing, their main focus is on strengthening your skills. More details about the tips & tricks sessions and the workshops can be found on Blackboard. Or contact STIP!
Do you have a specific question that requires a customized approach? Then make an appointment for individual counseling online or on campus. First, the student psychologist will explore which questions you have and what type of support you need. Next, counseling can be aimed at gaining insight, learning extra skills or making personal change. A counseling session takes about 45 minutes. The number of sessions is not fixed in advance, but many students can continue on their own again after a few sessions. Sometimes long-term counseling is necessary and the student psychologist can refer you to more specialized help outside the university.
