Psychosocial Counseling

The Psychosocial counseling (PSC) can be utilized by all students of the universities of Thüringia free of charge, for those who need to talk to a neutral person about themselves, their situation and /or problems as well as to learn about further supports.

You can schedule a counseling appointment with the consultative partners by e-mail or telephone as well as personally during their registration times.oth individuals and couples looking for advice can turn to us with study-related problems as well as personal conflicts and situations. The PSC is also, by request, offered in English.

We are the right place for you, if you:

  • are suffering through problems with learning + working
  • have problems coming into contact with others
  • have conflicts with your parents, partner or WG (shared apartment) roommates -> Mediation
  • often feel overwhelmed + insecure
  • are being tortured by fears of exams + other fears
  • are constricted by feelings of depression, depressive moods
  • are addicted to something or becoming addicted to something (Internet, Drugs, Food) 
  • often have doubts about yourself/ your studies
  • have the feeling that your studies are turning into a never ending story   -> Finishing Studies Coaching
  • need information about psychological counseling

In an initial meeting, you can comfortably discuss your concerns with the counsellor and give them a concrete form. Here, you will also discuss with them which goals you want to reach with the counseling and in which form support within the framework of the PSC is possible. After the initial contact, further consultations can follow.

The goal of counseling is to fully address your special personal problems individually and properly and to support you to overcome your state of crisis on your own. Of course, your counselor will maintain confidentiality. Upon request, you may also remain anonymous. In order to ensure the necessary relationship of confidence, we only offer you psychological social counseling by appointment.
