Counselling PicSometimes we all need some extra help, some time to talk. At FIE, we have an open-door policy and have many resources available to you as an FIE student, including qualified and accredited counselors and psychotherapists at our affiliate universities, as well as a wealth of in-house guides. 

If you or someone you know is struggling or just need someone to talk to, reach out! Your Residence Life Supervisors (RLSs) and larger FIE Dublin team in Binary Hub are always available to chat.

 

Accessing Counseling Services THROUGH FIE ​

All FIE Dublin students have access to counseling services, both online and in-person, provided by MyMind Dublin.

Students should feel comfortable approaching any member of staff regarding their mental health, but all communication regarding a referral for counseling support will be made via the FIE Dublin Resident Director. Contact The FIE Dublin office by phone (+353 (0) 1 679 8171) or email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), for help with arranging an appointment.

If you have a counselor from back home that you are seeing, we strongly encourage you to maintain contact with them throughout your time studying abroad with FIE.
