If you have psychological issues or complaints that are affecting your studies at Radboud University, a student psychologist can provide the necessary guidance. Visiting the student psychologist is free of charge. What you discuss is completely confidential and nothing will be shared about this to third parties.
When can a student psychologist help you?
The student psychologist can help you:
- With study problems such as fear of failure, procrastination, stress or issues with staying focused;
- With personal problems that get in the way of studying such as gloom, family problems, grief and loss, difficulty making and maintaining contacts, insecurity, negative self-image.
During the first appointment, you and the student psychologist will consider the best next step. Possibilities include:
- Short set of individual consultations
- Courses, training programmes and workshops
- If necessary, thinking along about an appropriate referral to help outside the university
Student psychologists do not offer treatment for serious psychological/psychiatric problems. If you need specialised or long-term help, contact your GP for a referral.
You can also take one of the online training courses at Gezondeboel. For this purpose, you will need to create an account with your Radboud email address. Visit Gezondeboel.nl.
If your situation is urgent, please contact your GP immediately. You may also call the huisartsenpost Nijmegen (Nijmegen Medical Centre) outside of office hours on 0900-8880.
