Psychological Wellbeing

PoliPsi is the free counselling and psychological and psychotherapeutic support service for students and PhD students at the Politecnico di Milano. It employs psychologists and psychotherapists who are experts in relationship dynamics and learning processes and it offers a space in which you can seek advice and receive competent support in times of distress, uncertainty and difficulty related to studies or personal events. Maximum confidentiality and respect for privacy of any data and materials exchanged or collected are guaranteed.

In particular, with the help offered by the service you can:

  • deal with difficult situations encountered upon entering academic life (both of an academic or psychological nature);
  • improve your academic performance (targeting and refining your chosen academic path, the motivations behind it and the most effective personal and cooperative strategies for achieving your desired results);
  • get to know and better understand yourself, others, your most meaningful relationships and the situations that you put yourself in in anticipation of a rich, prestigious and original personal, professional and relational future;
  • better cope with your first work placement experiences, in furtherance of internships, apprenticeships and research activities.

Depending on the specific problem, the service offers varying levels of psychological and psychotherapeutic support and counselling.

If you are interested in Educational Psychological Counselling (for career guidance problems, study delays, doubts relating to the academic path taken, etc.), the service offers:

  • between 1 to 3 individual sessions in Educational Psychological Counselling with a psychologist with expertise in guidance and teaching methodologies;
  • a Seminar on study and learning methodologies.
