Psychological Counselling in Higher Education (PSYCHE)

PSYCHE provides a forum for all those involved in the guidance and counselling of students in higher education within Europe. Professionals in the field of guidance and counselling for both domestic and international students are invited to join PSYCHE.


With its work, PSYCHE aims to connect higher education counselling services at a European level to guarantee appropriate help for students from all over Europe, to strengthen the flow of information with other psychological institutions, to become more integrated into higher education policy and the education system in general and to promote the importance of guidance and counselling services in higher education within the European Commission.

PSYCHE promotes the idea that counselling services have to be regarded as an indispensable part of every institution in higher education. PSYCHE also promotes the idea that successful academic learning implies personal growth and development. Given this holistic view of the student as a person, special attention is paid to the understanding of different cultures.
