The Psychological and Counselling Services Centre (CPP UW) is dedicated to helping Warsaw University students and employees with any personal, emotional and psychological concerns they may be experiencing. Our service is free to undergraduate and postgraduate students registered at UW as well as for UW employees.
CPP UW was established in 2018 and was conducted for many years at the Faculty of Psychology. From 2022, it became a central administration unit providing psychological support for the university community. The Warsaw University Psychological and Counselling Services Centre team consists of specialists who provide free confidential support in a form adapted to the needs and capabilities of the student or staff member concerned.
Visits can vary in nature depending upon the individual’s needs and requirements. This could include single consultations, a series of meetings focused on intervention, individual short-term psychotherapy, time-limited group psychotherapy, or the possibility of participating in workshops and psychoeducational work. At each stage, we are obliged to maintain the strictest confidentiality and provide assistance in accordance with the rules of the Code of Ethics for psychologists developed by the Polish Psychological Association and the Code of Ethics for psychotherapists of the Psychotherapy Section of the Polish Psychiatric Association.
CPP UW can also provide information on the possibility of obtaining specialist psychological and psychiatric assistance outside the CPP UW, depending on the current mental health needs of the person seeking such help.
We also conduct a range of activities to promote mental health and wellbeing, provide administrative and substantive support to other units of the University of Warsaw.
