Individual Counselling by Appointment

You need to schedule an appointment for individual counselling. Such a counseling session usually takes about 50 minutes.

Due to the current situation, we prefer the option of telephone or video-based counselling. However, if there is an urgent need, personal consultations are still possible at both counselling locations considering the 3G- Rule (vaccinated, recovered, tested). When making your appointment request, please indicate which type of consultation you prefer (in person or by telephone or video).

Please note

If you have any symptoms of illness or feel unwell, please refrain from visiting in person. In such cases, please use the contactless options of telephone counselling or make a new appointment.

Appointments are made through our online appointment system. You can also book an appointment by telephone at +49 341 9718-848 using the registration desk of the Psychosomatic Outpatient Clinic at the following times:

  • Monday and Tuesday 8.00 a.m. - 4.30 p.m.
  • Wednesday and Thursday 8.00 a.m. - 1.00 p.m.
  • Friday 8.00 a.m. - 12.00 p.m.

If you have any questions, uncertainties or technical difficulties, please contact us by e-mail at studierendenberatung {{ätt}} studentenwerk-leipzig {{punkt}} de.

If you would like anonymous advice, please contact us by phone or e-mail: studierendenberatung {{ätt}} studentenwerk-leipzig {{punkt}} de.
