Are you experiencing anxiety, do you feel worried or depressed? Is it affecting your studies or everyday life negatively? Please don't hesitate to contact us for a confidential discussion.


The psychologist at Arcada provides individual counseling and guidance for students who are experiencing problems with their life in general or with their studies. You can book an appointment if you need support related to e.g.

  • depressed mood, anxiety and worry related to the studies
  • life situation or social relationships in general
  • motivation, stress and time management

You can make an appointment with the psychologist when you want to discuss your situation and try to find new perspectives or tools in addressing the difficulties you are facing. The psychologist is a licensed health care professional, and the counseling is confidential. The service is free of charge.

If your problems are more extensive, you may need more long-term support and treatment. In this case, you can contact your health-care station or from January  2021 Finnish Student Health Care (FSHS). If you are unsure about what type of help you need, you can contact the psychologist so that we can think about it together.
