Personal appointments

You can make an appointment for personal counselling or consultation regarding matters related to sexual health, sexuality and HIV at our Helsinki, Tampere and Oulu offices.

At our offices, you can discuss for example HIV and other STIs, the fear of possibly having caught HIV and how to protect yourself from transmission.

You can come to the appointment by yourself or bring along your partner or another support person. We also offer crisis couselling for people living with HIV and their close ones. Read more here.

At Hivpoint, you can make an appointment with a nurse, psychologist or sexual counsellor, depending on your needs.
