Spazio Ascolto 
Ca' Foscari Counselling for Students

Reasons to request the service

How do you feel about your life as a student? Is everything going smoothly? Or are you anxious, or worried? If you are experiencing high levels of stress related to your studies and exams, if you find it hard to socialize or make new friends, if your motivation isn't what it used to be, or if many things have become difficult for you, reach out to the Spazio Ascolto: the listening space.

A psychologist is there to help you address your struggles and figure out how to move forward.
With her you can talk about your concerns and any situation that may be putting you to the test. You will find a listening ear, with confidentiality and privacy.
Seeking help shows courage and a desire to get to know yourself better.

Spazio Ascolto is not an Emergency Service.
In case of emergency, call 118 or go to the Emergency Room [ITA].
