During their studies, many students go through difficult phases in their personal lives or acute stressful or crisis situations that they can’t always get through on their own. Psychological counselling is a free service for students (including prospective students and doctoral candidates) at TU Berlin and the Studienkolleg. We help students overcome personal challenges in their daily life, study-related difficulties, and psychological problems.
...and please feel welcome to contact us also regarding any other difficult life situation or psychological problem!
In an individual counseling session, you can speak openly about your current situation. We will then try to analyze it together with you and find ideas for solutions. We listen, we ask questions, we repeat what we have understood, we make suggestions, and we consider possible measures and paths. This can be a first step to change, e.g. making a decision. Or we can give you a person to turn to, e.g. another counseling institution, self-help groups, or psychotherapists. Your concerns will be treated confidentially.
The Psychological Counseling Service cannot offer long-term psychotherapy. Most people who come for advice can get help in solving their problems with a set number of individual sessions. If necessary, however, we can answer all your questions on out-patient psychotherapy and help you to find a suitable psychotherapist.
We regularly offer seminars and workshops on topics such as fear of exams, procrastination, stress management and social skills.
Current/upcoming events as well as more information about the events can be found in the calendar of the Academic Advisory Service.
For problems related to your studies, we offer groups in which you can learn new ways of dealing with the problem and change your behavior, e.g. on the topic of fear of exams. The number of participants is limited for most groups in order to enable you to deal with the problem personally in a trusting environment.
