SSN Health, Porsgrunn

Need someone to talk to? Book your first appointment via the appointment button below. If you are already using our conversational therapy service, you will receive new appointments continuously from your therapist / psychologist. We also offer drop-in conversations.

Booking of appointment:

  • Online booking via the appointment button applies to NEW students to the offer only (ie if you do not already use our health service or it has been many months since you last did).
  • 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. You find the phone number next to your therapist underneath.


SSN Health now offers drop-in talks every afternoon Monday-Thursday from 2.30pm-3pm. You can choose whether you want to drop by our office, or call us. Phone numbers can be found next to the picture of the therapists below.

If you have an urgent need for help, you must call 113, the emergency room 116117 or your GP.

Cancellation of appointment:

NB! Online booking is available ONLY to students who are new to the service.
