Psychotherapeutic and Psychosocial Advisory Service

What do we offer

The Psychotherapeutic and Psychosocial Advisory Service offers free advice concerning problems related to your studies as well as personal conflicts.

The institution faces up to the ever-increasing pressure which students are subjected to. All matters are treated confidentially and, if desired, anonymously.

Apart from individual, couple and family counselling, an important aspect of our approach is group work concentrating on one particular topic. For instance, we offer courses which deal with studying techniques and working methods.

When can we help

All students who would like to talk to one of our experienced psychologists about a problem are very welcome to contact us. For example, we can help you with:

  • problems related to your studies (e.g. difficulty making decisions, fear of examinations, fear of authority)
  • relationship problems, problems finding a partner, dealing with having separated
  • isolation and contact anxiety (e.g. social phobias)
  • problems with leaving home (e.g. becoming independent of your parents, new orientation)
  • depression, anxiety, self-injury, thoughts of suicide, psychosomatic problems, eating disorders, compulsive disorders etc.
  • suffering caused by sexual abuse
  • addiction (e.g. drugs, gambling, computer or internet addiction)
  • integration problems experienced by students from abroad
