Compass Psychology is a team of clinical psychologists offering high quality individual psychological therapy sessions and training programs. 

  • Individual psychological therapy sessions cost 105€ for 50 minutes
  • Couples or family therapy sessions cost 120€ for 50 minutes. Extended sessions (80 minutes) are available for an additional fee. 
  • 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 are currently providing English-language parenting programmes. A list of events open to the public is on our events page.
