Psychotherapeutic Counselling Centre for Students (PBS)

When you make use of our counselling services at an early stage and on smaller occasions, you can often avoid greater stress and more complex treatments.

For all personal conflicts, e.g. study problems, difficulties learning and working, problems testing, difficulties with contact persons, family or partner conflicts, you can seek counseling at the Psychotherapy Counseling Center for Students (German abbreviation “PBS”) from experienced employees from the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at Philipps-Universität Marburg. If one session isn’t enough for resolution, PBS employees will make a recommendation for further treatment and let you know about the options that exist. If you take advantage of counseling early on — even for minor situations — you will usually be able to avoid greater stress and more extensive treatment.

Counseling during the coronavirus pandemic

Due to the current coronavirus situation, at this time we are offering counseling sessions in person, by telephone, or via online video chat. If you have up-to-date proof of vaccination or prior infection (in Germany, this is called the “2G” rule), counseling sessions can be offered in person if participants comply with the generally applicable hygiene rules (wearing a face mask that covers the mouth and nose, hand disinfection, observing minimum distancing). To do this, you can come to one of our locations without an appointment during the office hours listed below. During office hours, the anonymity of counseling is guaranteed, but there may be a wait. Alternatively, counseling by telephone is also an option via the numbers listed below. Or you can make an appointment in advance by telephone or by e-mail for online counseling via the RED Medical video platform. In that case, you will receive an access code to a securely encrypted chat room approved for counseling sessions.

Please note that sending unencrypted data by e-mail is neither adequate nor secure for exchanging personal data or other confidential information.
