Set to fuel your creativity.
Professional fulfilment and individual psychological wellbeing are very closely intertwined. Recent research in psycho-social studies have shown that counselling fosters an awareness of personal wellbeing, instrumental in an individual’s achievement of academic goals and thus, in turn, promotes well-planned career development.
RUFA – Rome University of Fine Arts has set up a counselling service which is offered, free of charge, to students enrolled on any of its courses, regardless of their year of enrolment. The service sets out to help students develop the tools they may need to react positively in the face of life’s challenges, circumstances generally typified by increased stress levels, poor concentration, creative block and performance anxiety.
The approach taken in sessions is highly practical, focusing on objectives agreed in conjunction with the psychologist-psychotherapist. A cycle of sessions involves five 40-minute meetings. A detailed needs analysis is made in the first meeting, in the form of a semi-structured interview, which serves to assess the main areas for intervention and points for development. Subsequent meetings are informed by the idea of reciprocity, where student feedback is essential for effective progress to be made.
Having completed the cycle, participants may decide to continue with further follow-up meetings and resilience support. The service is run by psychologist-psychotherapist René Angeramo, (registered with the Board of Psychologists – Lazio Region, under n.15606), expert in school/career counselling.
