    3. Psychological support for employees

    We have currently found ourselves in an unusual and particularly difficult situation.

We have to take decisions and actions that are very difficult to handle all by ourselves. You can rely on the support of specialists from the Institute of Psychology!
    Contact us, if you need our help, simply want to talk or have difficulties with:

    • handling the situation around you and the related fear, stress and tension,
    • home quarantine and its impact on the relationships with your relatives,
    • work in new virtual reality, finding enthusiasm to such work, work organisation and effectiveness,
    • arranging your everyday life so that you live well, taking care of your own health and your surroundings.
