This spring Laureamko has been promoting a second counselling psychologist to Laurea. So far there has been one counselling psychologist in Laurea when, according to the number of students we have, we should preferably have three.

The aim of the counselling psychologist is to support students’ well-being and ability to study. They offer short-term guidance that is both confidental and free of charge. Taina Laine, who has been working as a substitute for Santtu Merjanaho while he’s been on study leave, will continue to work as the second counselling psychologist in the autumn. Here in Laureamko we are very happy about the news and that Laurea is investing in students’ well-being and making it possible for more students to get support in case they need it.
