Individual Counselling

The open office hours are held at both locations and take about 20 minutes. This initial contact gives you the chance to clarify your questions before accessing the 50- minute counselling. It is also often possible to get a follow-up appointment more quickly through Open Counselling than through the 50-minute appointments.

Open Counselling is offered by telephone, as well as by booked video appointment twice a week.

For counselling by telephone, please use the telephone consultation hours listed below. Open Counselling via video takes place by booking an appointment in advance. In justified exceptional cases, video counselling can also take place in presence with consultation. Please indicate this when booking your appointment. The new appointments for the same week will be announced at the beginning of every week (Monday 12 noon).

You can use the Open Counselling by telephone without prior registration during the following telephone consultation hours:

Tuesdays 1.30 p.m. to 2.30 p.m.

  •  +49 341 97 18 848 (Ms Rudolf, Ms Wimmer, Ms Schuhmann)

Thursdays 9.00 a.m. to 11.00 a.m.

  •  +49 176 19 65 96 68 (Ms Eichhorn)

In urgent cases or emergencies, you can always use the counselling services offered by the City of Leipzig.
