Caring for the health and well-being of our students is essential so that they may enjoy their time at IED.
Life at a design school can be very exciting and interesting, but at the same time, it can be a challenge to adapt to a new environment and the stress of student life.
It may sometimes be complicated to communicate with relatives and friends to try and solve our problems on our own. A good professional is extremely useful at these times.
IED Madrid offers you the opportunity to talk in full confidentiality with a psychological counselling office about any issue that may have an impact on your academic life, personal well-being or mental health.
What do you have to do?
If you feel bad, have anxiety problems or any psychological problem that prevents you from living your normal life or developing as you would like to, do not hesitate to come forward.
You only have to make an appointment with our professional psychologists, who will listen to you in order to gain a thorough understanding of your case. Remember that the first three appointments with this professional will be financed by IED Madrid. If you need to continue, it will be at your expense.
At your first session, you will be assigned a psychotherapist with whom you will be able to address your concerns. This professional will assess your needs and give you the support you need in order to find the best way forward.
Your psychologist will not share your personal information with any person outside the services of the psychological counselling office. The only exceptions would be if:
- The psychologist believes that not providing this information puts your life or physical integrity or that of others at risk.
- The law requires that this information be provided to a court of law.
What can the psychological counselling office treat?
- Mood problems. For example: depression, anxiety and stress.
- Ongoing difficulties in adapting to university life.
- Relationship problems.
- Mourning the loss of a loved one.
- Substance abuse.
- Eating problems.
- Cultural adaptation.
- Study and career issues.
- Traumatic experiences.
- Loneliness and isolation.
- Sexuality and gender identity.
- And any other personal or emotional concerns you need to address.
No problem is too big or too small to get support.
How can you book an appointment?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the times you are available, your first and last names, age and date of birth; and the team from the psychological counselling office will get in touch with you.
Where can you find it?
As we strive to offer these services in a welcoming, intimate and comfortable environment for every student, the appointments will take place at the Instituto de Psicología de Emoción y Salud (IPES) located at Calle Ferraz 55, 1º D (metro Argüelles), in order to guarantee the privacy of the sessions in the clinic of our psychological counselling office.
