Our aim is to provide assistance to any member of the University Community going through a difficult situation. Through interviews and individual working sessions we offer psychological and educational advice related to both academic and personal problems.

We often possess the personal tools needed to overcome difficulties, but when this is not the case an external resource can be of great help. Designed in order to provide primary care, this service is free for anyone who wishes to use it. 100% confidentiality is guaranteed for all consultations.

As the head of service, I encourage you to turn to any of the professionals on our team whenever you need any help.

Cristina Peñalba de las Heras
Head of the Psychoeducational Counseling Unit

 

When should I ask for help?

Whenever you think you need it. As a student you may be faced with doubts concerning academic issues related to your chosen degree, organization or concentration difficulties, or anxiety before exams. Speaking with your tutor can help you to resolve some of these situations, but you can also seek direct help from the service. At times you may face personal or family issues which have an impact on your wellbeing and consequently your performance. If you cannot tackle the crisis by yourself: do not hesitate, seek help. Before matters become more complicated, remember that you have access to a specialist in your Faculty or School who is available to assist you and lend a helping hand where possible. The sooner the better.

In addition to studying, planning skills are important in many aspects of life, both in a professional context as well as personal. If you always leave things to the last minute or if you struggle to meet deadlines, it is worth reading this article!

It is the most common type of exam with which students feel most comfortable. However, we can get confused about the focus of the topic, wrongly calculate the distribution of time or lose points for poor writing.

Learn to handle the factors that affect your concentration, effectively plan your study time and optimize your memory performance.

You can request a copy of this manual from the head of psychoeducational counseling in your regular place of study.

Exam preparation is a personal and individualized process. Each student bases preparation on knowledge, subjects, deadlines, contexts and different habits. As well as spending time studying and staying on top of subjects on a daily basis, we propose several practical recommendations to cope during this period of work.

It is clear that the majority of us want to do our work well, but when we invest obscene amounts of time and effort into something without achieving a satisfactory "result", we can find ourselves faced with a problem of perfectionism.
