Psychotherapeutic and Psychosocial Advisory Service
thank you for your interest in our advisory services. Unfortunately we are currently experiencing a capacity problem and therefore waiting times of 4 weeks. To get help with your concerns more quickly, we recommend that you contact one of the following institutions temporarily.
We are currently working hard to provide additional resources and assume that we can be there for you in the new semester as usual.
Your psychotherapeutic counselling team
At the moment you can reach us by phone.
For a counselling by one of our psychotherapeutic counsellors please call us Mo - Fr 9:00 am - 12:00 am. The phonenumber is ++49 89 357135-40.
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.
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
If you would like to have a private and confidential talk with one of our counsellors, please arrange an appointment by phone. We will arrange an appointment with you to take place as soon as possible. Our advice is free of charge and, naturally, absolutely confidential. We are strictly bound to maintain confidentiality. If you think you require more permanent help, we can refer you to qualified therapists. Apart from individual counselling, we also offer couple and family counselling as well as various courses. At the moment, following courses are being offered:
- Studying techniques and organisation
- Relaxation techniques
- Mater public speaking - talking and making presentations confidently in front of groups
- Stress management during your studies
