‘Encounters, discussions and wellbeing work. People can come talk to us, Aalto chaplains, irrespective of their religion or beliefs. We’re not here to proclaim, but to listen and assist.
Many feel that it’s easier to talk to us about, for example, study-related problems because we are, in a sense, from outside the academic scene. Major changes in everyday life or losing a loved one are other situations that can be hard to handle alone. When something like that happens, you can call or email us to agree a meeting. And it’s of course fine to approach me on the corridors to just say hello and chat about whatever.’
