Counselling services

What types of counselling are offered?

Individual and group counselling for English speaking students.

Who should go to counselling? 

Any personal issues can be cause for seeking counselling if they are negatively impacting your functioning. 

What are the special needs of international students?

Adapting to a new culture is an ongoing process. It is not unusual for international students to experience many different changes as they get adjusted to a new environment. For instance, getting acclimatized to new weather conditions, getting used to a new culture, loneliness due to being homesick, perceived loss of support or relationships, academic adjustment and more. Our staff works to provide culturally-sensitive support to our international students and help them get through the difficulties.

Why Might I Experience Culture Shock in Russia?

Culture shock is a 'sudden exposure to unfamiliar culture'. It may happen to you for many reasons. Russian culture has a large number of features and differences from other cultures.


Services are free of charge to all HSE students.
