The study psychologist works at the interface of educational advice and counselling and mental health work. The work of the educational psychologist focuses on supporting students in learning and in completing their studies and includes working with the individual, guiding study support groups as well as providing, for example, training relating to study skills.
If you are studying Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in University of Eastern Finland you can reserve an appointment from a study psychologist (not available before August 2019). At the appointment it is possible to discuss about difficulties related to studies. Common issues are for example troubles in time management or motivation, learning disabilities or how to cope with stress.
Counsellig is voluntarily, free of costs and absolutely confidential.
In Kuopio you can schedule the appointment by sending an email to this address opintopsykologi-kuopio [at] uef.fi.
When you write your message to the educational psychologist, please include your name, phone number and student number and also answer these questions:
- What motivated you to apply your current studies?
- What has gone well in your studies so far? Describe your strengths as a student based on your previous studies.
- What are you worried about in your studies or in your present situation?
- Are there some specific issues that you want to talk about in our meeting?
Unfortunately, meetings with the psychologist are not available in Joensuu before January 2020.
After psychologist has received your message, she will contact you as soon as possible to schedule the appointment with you.
