Personal counselling with appointment
A certified psychologist helps you identify and clarify your current personal problems and will then try to develop possible solutions. After an initial session, it may be necessary to arrange further sessions; alternatively you will receive information about further counselling or therapy options.
Until further notice, counselling is only possible via phone or videophone through BigBlueButton. Please, indicate which way you prefer and leave your phone number and email if you book an appointment. We will then contact you at the time booked.
A counselling session usually lasts 50 minutes and is free of charge. Your issues will of course be treated confidentially.
Arranging a counselling session
It is possible to book a consultation online. This service is provided by an external service provider who is responsible for technical implementation and data protection. Alternatively, you can also make an appointment by telephone or email.
