Student Psychologist

Are you a student at WUR? The student psychologist can help you with personal problems that can lead to study delay, or with study-related health problems. You can come to us with family problems, insecurity, anxiety or gloominess, but also depression, addiction, tension or mourning.

Don't hesitate to reach out; after all, prevention is better than cure.

What can the student psychologist do for you?

The WUR student psychologist offers short-term counseling (to a maximum of five meetings) for minor psychological problems. This is free and confidential!

Please note we do not diagnose or provide treatment for serious – or complex – psychological / psychiatric problems. If you need specialised or long-term help, we can help you get a referral to mental healthcare through your GP.

We provide guidance in several ways:

  • Walk-In (± 15 minutes): If you are not sure which support best suits your question, we advise you to make an appointment for a 'Walk-In consultation' on work days between 13:00 and 14:00h.

  • Walk-In SC de Bongerd: every Tuesday from 15:00-16:00h there is a Walk-In consultation at SC de Bongerd. You can register via De Bongerd or check if the psychologist is available on the spot.
  • Intake at the psychologist (online or face-to-face, ± 60 min): We listen to you and estimate how we can best help you. That may be a group training (via Student Training & Support), an e-health module (gezondeboel), we give tips, or we plan a follow-up appointment. We may also refer you to other caregivers.

    All conversations are confidential!

Make an appointment

Please fill in the registration form. You will receive a confirmation per e-mail. After the waiting period we will schedule an intake appointment. If the psychologist has additional questions, or if they recommend another form of support, they will contact you.
