Work Consulting


Our occupational psychologists advise companies on issues at the organizational and management levels and work with you to develop solutions.

Possible focal points: Burnout prevention, CHM, conflicts within the team and much more.



We train first aiders for mental health in the workplace. Participants learn to recognize mental stress, to talk to those affected, to provide first aid, and to make referrals to the right services. The training consists of 4 x 4 modules and is conducted online.

Next round: Spring 2022



We support you with our expertise in planning and designing mental health events held at your organisation. With individual workshop formats, break-out sessions, team exercises or speed dating with psychologists, we strengthen the mental fitness of your employees and break the taboo around mental health.

    “The biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

    With us, you will manage to reach your employees.

    Why is communication to your employees so important?

    Create Awareness

    Break the stigma

    Motivate employees

    How we support you in internal communication:

    Internal communication to raise employee awareness about the importance of mental health consists of two main areas. The initial introduction and the regular health campaigns. In both areas, we rely on integrative multi-channel communication to employees. This is coordinated individually with the company and adapted to the company’s needs. Innovative communication measures draw employees’ attention to the offer.

    Quality Management at Instahelp

    Instahelp was founded in 2015 with the vision of improving mental health through simplified access to professional psychological counselling. From the beginning, the quality of our services has been our top priority. A scientific advisory board with experts in the field of psychology was formed and cooperation with Sigmund Freud Private University (SFU) was established. In addition to strict selection criteria and professional experience, the counselling quality of our Instahelp psychologists is guaranteed by their own university course in “online counselling”, regular training and supervision.

    I think it’s wonderful that the counselling is free of charge, which makes it much easier for me to access. My psychologist is very empathetic and always goes out of her way to help me. I feel that I can see small personal progress after each session.

    Instahelp user/employee

    For me, the quick, low-threshold, and simple access was the decisive factor for using instahelp. The contact with the psychologist was easy and very prompt. I found the questionnaire, through which you are initially assigned to suitable therapists, simple and clear to understand. My psychologist was very appreciative and pleasant. An appointment for a video interview was found very quickly. For me, it was clearly a good experience and I would recommend it to others. Translated with (free version)

    Instahelp user/employee

    I would not have assumed that counselling via screen could work so well. The physical distance – at least with my issues – does not entail any personal distance. My therapist shows me that she understands exactly what I am talking about. Together we get to the core of the problems very quickly. This is not only liberating, but also a lot of fun.

    Instahelp user/employee

    With text chat, audio or video telephony, the counselling is always there.
