Psychotherapeutic counselling

Our professional psychologists will help you if you feel weighed down by personal or interpersonal problems. In one or several talks, you can get suggestions for changes, on how to help yourself and information about therapy options or further addresses you can contact. The discussions are absolutely confidential: our psychologists are subject to secrecy. Moreover, the consultations are free of charge and you usually receive an appointment within a few weeks.

The psychotherapeutic counselling service is there for you if you have:

  • Problems with your studies
  • Problems with your job
  • Problems with time management
  • Problems with motivation
  • Problems with writing
  • Exam nerves or other fears
  • Restlessness, exhaustion or sleep disorders
  • Depressive moods or depression
  • A lack of self-esteem
  • Find it hard to make friends or socialise
  • Problems with your partner or family
  • Other psychotherapeutic problems

Staff at the University of Stuttgart and the Hochschule für öffentliche Verwaltung und Finanzen Ludwigsburg as well as employees of the MPI for Intelligent Systems and the MPI for Solid State Research can also use our counselling services.

What to do?

Consultation in German

Please note that the consultation can currently only be offered in German - our consultants are not native English speakers.


Since normal e-mails are not encrypted, our psychotherapeutic counselling no longer offers communication by e-mail. This is justified in the special data protection of psychologists and serves security - because this is the only way we can guarantee that your sensitive data cannot be seen by unauthorized third parties.

Please use our telephone consultation hours to make an appointment. These are Monday to Thursday from 13:30 to 14:30.


Who can take advantage of the advice?

Students who are enrolled at one of the universities in Stuttgart, Ludwigsburg, Esslingen, Göppingen and Horb, which we support, can take advantage of the psychotherapeutic counselling free of charge. In addition, employees of the universities can also use our counselling services, provided this has been contractually agreed.

How does the consultation proceed?

The consultation takes place in personal one-on-one meetings in a confidential environment. At the first meeting you will describe your concerns. In the further course of the consultation, the aim is to find the most suitable solution for you. This will show whether one meeting is sufficient or whether several meetings are needed. If your problem cannot be adequately treated during the consultation and therapy is required, we will discuss what options are available and, if necessary, name further points of contact. We cannot offer long-term therapy within our framework.

Where does the consultation take place?

All consultations take place in our advice centre in Stuttgart-Mitte. This is located on the ground floor of the Theodor-Heuss-Heim and thus offers the necessary anonymity. The counselling centre is easy to reach by public transport. Due to contact restrictions, you can take advantage of a video consultation.



How long does a consultation take?

This depends on the individual case. Consultations usually last between 45 and 50 minutes.

What happens with my data?

The discussions are strictly confidential – we are subject to the legal obligation of secrecy. Your data is safe with us and will not be passed on to the universities or other third parties.
