The Psychological Counselling Centre of The University of Warsaw provides confidential short-term counselling, crisis intervention services and evaluation of needs for academic support (eg. exam accommodations, additional leave of absence to achieve your academic opportunities) for all English-speaking students of The University of Warsaw.
Our center helps clients with various difficulties – eg. learning and workplace issues, interpersonal problems, adaptation and acculturation processes, effects of traumatic experiences, symptoms of anxiety and mood disorders or sleep disturbances. Our team respects the principle of expert-client confidentiality based on a code of professional ethics.
Our offer includes 3 meetings per semester but currently does not include a psychotherapy process – this means you would not have a chance to set and regularly evaluate long-term personal goals on the basis of a stable and developing relationship with a psychotherapist.
Check out our short video about the beginnings at the university, how to adapt to a new place, and what to do if you need support:
