​University is a special stage in a person’s life which presents not only a lot of opportunities but can also be very stressful. Difficulties with studies and personal crises are therefore nothing unusual.

A university course places many different demands on a student and can therefore also lead to various problems such as exam nerves, fear of public speaking, difficulties with learning, self-esteem, pressure to perform or stress. Vice versa, personal problems can also be so stressful that the student finds it difficult to concentrate on his or her studies over the medium or long term.

According to reports, about every fourth or fifth student suffers from serious mental problems. These occur independently of gender, intellect or ability.

Since such crises cannot always be mastered alone, the counsellors of the Psychological Counselling Service are there to help in the framework of personal consultation or targeted workshops and training measures.

All services are confidential and free of charge for HSD students. The counsellors are sworn to secrecy. Personal appointments are generally arranged by email: info.psb@hs-duesseldorf.de  
Consultation in English is also possible.

Further information can be found in our flyer.
Should you have a specific time preference, please state it in your email. You do not have to give a reason for requesting an appointment.
