Individual counselling by study and career counselling psychologists

Aalto’s study and career counselling psychologists offer online and on-campus individual counselling to Aalto students. You can drop in at the Starting Point of Wellbeing for individual counselling without an appointment. Welcome!

Contact us if you are feeling stuck with your studies or career prospects!

You can contact a study psychologist for example when you are looking for help with time management, you find yourself procrastinating, you are lacking motivation, you are looking for a study method that suits you, or you are experiencing study related stress, anxiety or burnout.

A career counselling psychologist specializes in career management issues and supports you in career and life planning, and transition to work. Career counselling supports you in self-knowledge, building a meaningful career, identifying opportunities, and making decisions.
