Psychological counselling at the Career and Counselling Centre is free of charge to all students in Tallinn University regardless of their study regime. It is also available during periods of academic leave.

The psychologist can help you gain a better understanding of your own thoughts, feelings, desires and fears. When your problem has been identified, the psychologist will then help you to set realistic goals and find solutions. Thus, psychological counselling is not about giving advice and ready solutions, but about a process of cooperation and exploration in which you yourself play an important and active part.

All personal details and the content of counselling sessions are confidential. Normally, no information will be revealed to any third party without your personal consent.

Counselling takes place in a private counselling room (S103) in the Silva building. The first appointment usually lasts 60–90 minutes and the following sessions last 60 minutes. The number of sessions depends on the nature and severity of the problem, but usually more than one session is required.
