Dear students,

the period of study offers numerous opportunities, but also places demands on the areas of daily life. Even if many challenges are overcome on your own, not everything always runs smoothly.

We are happy to support you in difficult situations or phases of life. Regardless of whether the problems are directly related to your studies (e.g. fear of exams, agonisingly putting off homework or initial doubts about your studies and thoughts of dropping out) or are completely unrelated to university life. We offer both individual and couples counselling and also have various groups on offer.

Please make an appointment for a confidential consultation.

We provide advice by phone, video and in person.

Our consulting services

We help to find solutions for study-specific topics, such as:

  • speech and examination anxieties
  • Procrastination / writer's block
  • Concentration disorders
  • Self-organisation

In the same way, we also provide support in personal conflict situations, such as:

  • self-esteem problems, anxiety states, depressive moods
  • contact and relationship difficulties (social isolation, problems with friends, roommates)
  • partnership conflicts, processing of separations, partnerlessness, sexual difficulties
  • current crisis situations (e.g. loss of a significant person, suicidal thoughts, experiences with sexual or violent assaults)
  • stressful family situation (e.g. illness and loss of one parent, separation of parents, problems with siblings, family constellations)
  • psychosomatic complaints, eating disorders
  • difficult social situation (compatibility of studies and job etc.)
  • specific problems of international students
  • addiction problems (media addiction, alcohol, drugs)
  • pregnancy conflict counselling
