Our mission is to offer high quality psychological services to the international community in Helsinki

We offer online therapy, via video conferencing or telephone. In person sessions also available, depending on current regulations.

Compass Psychology is a team of native English speaking clinical psychologists offering high quality individual psychological therapy sessions.

  • Individual psychological therapy sessions cost 105€ for 50 minutes
  • We are registered psychologists in Finland, and many private health insurance companies may be able to cover the full costs of sessions.
  • Please note that we cannot offer KELA or HUS reimbursed psychology or psychotherapy sessions at this time.

Our aim is to help our clients cope with living abroad, improve their relationships and overcome stress. We also help them to deal with anxiety, depression or other mental health issues they may be experiencing, and to regain their psychological wellness.   Our approach to psychotherapy is based on cognitive behavioural therapy and solution focused therapy.

We can provide lectures, workshops and training on a number of topics for both healthcare professionals and other clients, such as schools and companies. A list of events open to the public is on our events page.
