Counseling

Counseling

Student life is a challenging phase of life. No one should have to face those challenges alone. Our student counselors are here for you, should you seek an open ear to talk about problems in your studies, relationship issues, feelings of loneliness, difficult decisions you are facing, or any other concerns.

We will accompany and support you as you process your thoughts, contemplate your feelings, and figure out the next steps to take.

These conversations are confidential; as counselors we are bound by professional secrecy.

If circumstances do not allow for meetings in person, we are also open to conducting conversations via phone or Skype. We are also happy to answer e-mails. Although we take precautions to ensure confidentiality, it must be clear that by using such online tools and services complete data privacy cannot be guaranteed.

Spiritual Guidance

We are here for you if you are looking to develop or deepen your own personal spirituality, if you wish for prayer or a word of blessing, or if you have questions regarding religion or faith.

We also offer spiritual guidance, if you wish to perceive and shape your life more intentionally on the basis of your faith, or if you are preparing a decision in the medium or long term. Spiritual guidance means that, depending on your preferences and needs, you meet with your spiritual director every 2-6 weeks for an approximately one-hour conversation in order to discern together how God is present in your life and what you feel called to do.
