A listening ear for everyone

 

About

A bit of background information

Do you sometimes feel lonely, do you find it difficult to study and/or motivate yourself, or do you just need someone who listens to you? Your student days are not always fun. Frisse Gedachtes is a free platform where you can contact psychology students or experience experts anonymously. You choose the student you talk to. You can chat, call, video call, or even meet in real life. You choose what you like best.

How do I register?

The anonymous platform is currently being translated from Dutch to English. Since this takes some time, you are currently requested to sign up for the platform using the form below. We will contact you as soon as possible.  If you don't want to chat, but only want to view who the buddy's are, then click on 'View the buddies'. 

 
 

Nice new initiative for students to talk to fellow students in difficult times, free and anonymously. As a clinical psychologist and a mother of two young adults, I regularly see that it can be difficult for young people to share emotional or social problems with friends or family. There is also a high barrier to seeking professional help from a general practitioner or a student psychologist. A live or chat conversation with a trained volunteer offers contact, a listening ear and a sounding board.

FAQ

Is the platform free?

Yes. Students can contact psychology students and experts by experience on our platform for free. They offer a listening ear and practical tips if you need it.

How do I register?

Above is the button with which you access the platform. Create an anonymous account and then choose the buddy that suits you best. Leave a message and your buddy will respond as soon as possible.

What can I expect?

Your buddy will respond to your message as soon as possible. Then the contact begins. You talk about the things that are bothering you and your buddy listens to and supports you. You are anonymous, though later on you can still decide to make video calls or to meet in person.

What if my complaints are too complex?

If your complaints are too complex, you will be referred to a student psychologist or another suitable place. The buddies are there to provide a listening ear and do not offer therapy. Nevertheless, the platform can be a good addition to a psychologist's therapy.

Register as a volunteer

Register on the right to help us. Since we currently have plenty of buddies, you can sign up to help us in other ways.

 

For example, you can help us set up Frisse Gedachtes in other cities, you can sign up to be invited to our (often free) events and you can guide our buddies yourself if you have substantial experience with conducting psychological conversations. 

 

People become a volunteer at Frisse Gedachtes because they help others, they end up in a pleasant and enthusiastic team of students (we occasionally organize drinks) and because it looks good on their CV, because they do it completely voluntarily.
