Treatment and Appointments

Treatment

Treatment is our main activity. This office has been operating for several years, and the importance of its work is cherished by the FCUL population. A team of three psychologists currently provides consultation sessions every day of the week, and tries to satisfy the numerous requests for appointments it receives, in a timely manner. 

 

What can we help with?

Anxiety (regarding student evaluation or other contexts)
Low academic results
Difficulties in adapting to college
Emotional issues
Relationship issues
Sleep disorders
Sexuality issues
Social isolation
Phobias and panic attacks
Depression
Low self-esteem
Career guidance
Other problems

 

How do we work?

1. After an initial talk, we conduct an interview to assess your problem, goals, and the kind of help you require. You'll also be asked to complete one or more psychodiagnostic test.
2. Since we cannot satisfy all the requests we get at once, you may have to be placed on a waiting list for some time after this initial session. 
3. Once consultation sessions have begun, the type of intervention depends on the particular problem and the kind of help sought out. It may take on different forms: 

  • Brief and specialised counselling on a relatively delimited and identified personal problem or issue (such as having to make a decision);
  • Longer-term psychotherapy, for other problems of a clinical nature. In this case, there will be weekly individual consultations (lasting approximately 50 minutes);
  • Work focused on academic issues within the field of psychology of learning (such as time management and activity planning).
