Only digital sessions or "walk and talk"

Due to the pandemic we now offer digital sessions on all campuses. The first session is always digital, but we also offer "walk and talk" on following sessions. "Walk and talk" means that you and your therapist take the conversation outdoors, and this is agreed after your first session. Tried it before? It's worth a try! 


When you need someone to talk to

Sometimes everything feels a little ... difficult. You can go through periods where you feel tired all the time, lack motivation and find it difficult to concentrate. There can be many reasons for this. Maybe you've experienced a special event in your life, you're worried about your exams or you're just going through a period when everything seems more difficult than normal.

Free service for students

SSN Health has professional conversational partners on every campus. Our door is always open, and no question or issue is too big or small. You can visit our therapists and psychologists for just a quick chat or a number of sessions.

The offer you receive will be tailored to you, and individual conversations are one of several ways we work. Your offer can therefore consist of several different parts, such as a course, participation in a group, an exercise program or reading a specific book.

You can be absolutely sure that we will give you good help no matter what you are facing. In return, we expect you to be an active participant in your own process.

The service is free of charge and we naturally keep all conversations confidential.


International student and booking of online appointment?

To book an appointment with one of our therapists online, you'll need a "D number" if you are an international student. The D number is a temporary identification number which can be assigned to foreign persons who'll generally be resident in Norway for less than six months.

  • If you are from a country within the EU, you need to contact The Norwegian Tax Administration to get your D number.
  • If you are from a country outside the EU, you need to contact UDI (The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration) to get your D number.

When staying in Norway for more than six months you need to apply for a F number.


 

Booking of appointment:

  • Online booking via the appointment button applies to NEW students to the offer only (ie if you do not already use this service). Find the "Book appointment-button" at your chosen campus in the left sidebar.
  • The first session is a short talk to clarify the need for help and the way forward. You will not necessarily continue to have conversations with the person you had the first session with.
  • New sessions are set up continuously as needed (you do not need to book another appointment after the first session).
  • You will receive an SMS confirmation when the appointment is booked, as well as a new SMS in advance of the appointment, with a reminder of your appointment.

Already using the conversational therapy service?

  • If you are already using this service, and have not set up a new appointment for various reasons, call your therapist to schedule a new appointment when needed.
  • If you are a former user of this service and want to start up again, call the therapist/psychologist you were attended by before.
