Psychological counselling centre

If you or a fellow student are not well, do not be afraid to seek help. We are a team of psychologists with extensive experience in counselling, clinical psychology with a psychotherapeutic background. Our areas of expertise are depth psychology, psychoanalysis, body psychotherapy and systemic therapy.

We are interested in your worries and concerns and will support you in finding new perspectives.

Our consultation is free of charge and discreet. Family members, universities or health insurance companies do not receive any feedback. Everything we discuss remains with us.

Our offer is aimed at students of the University of Bonn, the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences and the Alanus University of Applied Sciences, as well as PhD students who are still enrolled.

The following topics are typical concerns that lead students to seek our counselling. If something is troubling you that you do not find in this list, we will of course advise you anyway. The subject areas only serve as a better orientation and classification of our offer and do not cover all possibilities of your consulting needs.
