In the individual consultation ...

... you can talk about problems that are getting you down in a confidential environment. Using your neutral interlocutor as a mirror, difficult situations can look different, be understood in new ways and be dealt with in a purposeful way.

In the group sessions ...

... you meet students with similar problems. This by itself often has a positive effect and talking to one another can help to broaden your perspective. The groups are a protected environment for conflicts and to work on new solution strategies. The participants can (re-)discover their personal potential with abilities and limitations, thereby effecting process-based changes.
