Confidential counsellor

Have you found yourself in a situation when you are experiencing undesirable behaviour, for example, bullying, sexual intimidation, discrimination, and aggression. Do you find yourself in such a situation? If so, visit our confidential counsellor. The confidential counsellor has the ‘duty of secrecy’ and will always handle your information confidentially.

"Duty of Secrecy: everything is confidential"

What can a confidential counsellor help you with?

The confidential counsellor can help you with the following:

  • Initial assistance when you experience undesirable behavior, and you need help and advice;
  • Exploring the possibility of an informal solution;
  • Provide information about other possible solutions such as the complaints procedures;
  • Guidance when you want to submit a complaint to the complaints committee or the Dean’s office of your study programme;
  • Referral to another organisation to get help, or a mediator;
  • Provide information about our approach to tackling undesirable behaviour.

In addition, we can:
