Psychological counseling for students

Today, students often find themselves in a difficult life situation. Some of the difficulties certainly cannot be solved with psychological counseling (e.g. financial situation, specific problems of studying). For another kind of difficulties psychological counseling may very well be a help, for example, if you do not trust yourself with anything, if you do not enjoy anything, if you experience your relationships as no longer satisfying or if you are looking for a way out with the help of drugs. Such personal difficulties may prevent you from using your energies to cope with your life situation in a more creative way. We would like to encourage you to visit us; alone or with others, for information, for counseling, even if you cannot yet clearly formulate what you want. We are bound by the duty of confidentiality.

To contact us, please contact Prof. Heike Stammer (h.stammer(at) or Prof. Elisabeth Nicolai (e.nicolai(at)

Consulting outside the university

If you prefer counseling outside the university, you can contact the Psychological Counseling Center of the Diakonische Bezirksstelle Ludwigsburg (Psychologische Beratungsstelle), Gartenstraße 19, Tel. 955 131 (Mrs. Vogelgsang) in Ludwigsburg.

The Psychological Counseling Center of the Studierendenwerk Stuttgart (Psychologische Beratungsstelle) is also available (Studierendenwerk Stuttgart, Rosenbergstr. 18, 70174 Stuttgart). Due to the high number of Corona cases, this currently offers mainly video counseling. An initial consultation must take place in person in the psychotherapy, for the initial diagnosis indication and clarification. However, the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung has thankfully reacted to the corona crisis with special regulations and has recently also allowed initial consultations via video consultation. This ensures that the Psychological Counseling Center of the Studierendenwerk can continue to accept new counseling seekers and not only offer follow-up consultations.

Counseling appointments can be made by phone, Monday through Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at +49 711 / 4470 -1228. English-language counseling sessions are also available.

It is expected that there will also be an open telephone consultation hour (emergency consultation hour) from May 2022. This is planned for Monday afternoons.
