The Student Coaching is a complementary counselling programme that cooperates closely with our Psychotherapeutic and Psychosocial Advisory Service. After an initial consultation clarifying your current situation as a student, the problems you are experiencing and what might be causing them, you will be given the opportunity to participate in one of our coaching programmes.
By using well-established methods, we will try and find an individual approach to tackle the problems you are dealing with in your studies. The idea behind it is less about giving you lots of advice, but rather about working together and reflecting upon your resources in order to discover and start using your unused or even unknown potential.
The various types of coaching we offer include individual coaching, but also a wide spectrum of courses and group coaching.
Our advisory service also focuses on handing on information about the various support, coaching and advisory services available at your university.
When can we help
Due to our years of experience in giving advice to students, we are aware of the fact that problems at university are usually very complex and can occur in very different situations or stages of one’s studies. So, if you think that our coaching services could help you, you are very welcome to come to us, for example, if your studies don’t seem to be progressing the way you had hoped or if you fear you won’t be able to graduate successfully. These are some of the topics we deal with in our individual coaching:
- Studying techniques and preparing for exams
- Time and Exam Management
- Motivation, orientation and decision-making
- Stress management and relaxation
Our various courses deal with, for example, studying techniques and organisation or how to deal with stress in your everyday life as a student. At the moment, following courses are being offered:
- Studying techniques and organisation
- Relaxation techniques
- Master public speaking
- Stress in everyday university life
Have a look at the courses’ desctriptions to find out how to apply for them.
How do we help
If you would like to take part in one of our coaching programmes, please contact the office of the counselling center to arrange an appointment for an initial consultation, either personally or on the phone.
An initial consultation with one of our psychotherapeutic counsellors in order to clarify your situation is mandatory in order to participate in our other coaching programmes. If, during the first meeting, it becomes clear that you would profit from our coaching services, we will refer you directly to our coaching department.
Our advisory and coaching services are free of charge for students. Naturally, our counsellors are bound to maintain confidentiality. Thus, all consultations are treated discreetly and strictly confidentially.
