What's offered + Procedure

The diverse offerings of the PBS include:

  • First interviews and diagnosis with psychological testing instruments
  • Crisis intervention
  • Counseling and coaching
  • Short-term therapy
  • Assistance in finding a long-term external therapist


After registration via telephone with the PBS, you will get an appointment within 14 days for the first interview in which you can explain your situation to us.

The first interview takes place directly in the office of the PBS.

The issues can often be clarified by additional psychological questionnaires and the results are discussed in the second session which is called the diagnosis session.

Based on the information from the first interview and the diagnosis session, you will either be offered additional counseling sessions or we will help you to find alternative treatment that suits your needs.

The PBS team primarily works with methods of cognitive behavioral therapy and systemic therapy.  The one-on-one appointments typically take place on a weekly basis and last for 45-50 minutes. Additional to the first interview, 6-9 more sessions can be scheduled. In some cases this can be extended.

The success of the counseling will be measured by questionnaires in the end.  Additionally, students will be provided with suggestions on how to continue independently with the learned strategies and how to handle setbacks.
