Counselling

Individual counselling

At first, counselling takes place as individual, family or couple conversation. At the moment, we usually offer such first consultations as part of our open consultation hours on Wednesday afternoons. This conversation can provide initial impulses. But in many cases, it is beneficial to have follow-up counselling.

Follow-up counselling is offered to you as soon as an employee has time to offer appointments weekly or on a 14-day basis. After the first consultation during our open consultation hours, an employee that will be permanently responsible for you is assigned to you. 

Individual consultations take up to 45 minutes. Questions regarding the assessment of your problem, the function of addictive behaviour and your general life situation in connection with the addiction problem have a place here, as well as support in acute emergency situations and life crises.
 

Group counselling

However, you can also first participate only in the info group and check for yourself here whether you need further individual consultations. You can visit this group already on the following Monday after your first consultation during the open consultation hours. Please note the box on the right for more information about the info group.

Would you like to join the info group, but only speak English?

Then there are two possibilities: Bring someone you trust to translate for you during the meeting, or please check with us beforehand to see if we can arrange a translation for you during the meeting.

The motivation groups are open as counselling groups to people who are looking for ways out of addiction, are in advanced individual counselling and would like to talk to other people who are also affected by addiction problems. The topics are: getting out of addiction, avoiding relapses, coping with stress and shaping everyday life.

The info group takes place every Monday from 5.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.. It is a counselling course over four sessions. Each week a different topic is dealt with.

It is possible to join at any time. Everyone is welcome. Nobody has to do anything. The only requirement: to be sober / to be clean / to be free of gaming and free of gambling on the day the info group takes place.

Are you interested? Have you got any questions left?

Information about details and registration for the course is provided in an initial consultation during the open consultation hours on Wednesday (or Thursday in Mümmelmannsberg). If you are not able to visit an initial consultation, you can also contact us by phone or e-mail.
