Would you like to talk to someone about your fears?

Psychological counselling helps you to learn how to deal with your anxieties and
to master seemingly unmanageable situations with the help of concrete strategies.


Make peace with your own fears

Fears can occur in very different forms: in social situations (eating in front of others, speaking, writing, etc.) or in certain places (e.g. public transport or places with many people). Anxiety can significantly reduce the quality of life to the extent that those affected even wish they no longer felt any fear at all.

The life-saving function of anxiety is usually forgotten due to the high level of emotional suffering: It leads to an enormous increase in attention and performance, which enables us to react with lightning speed in dangerous situations. In the case of an anxiety disorder, however, the anxiety misses its actual function, in which an actually harmless situation is classified as life-threatening and the body switches to alarm readiness.



We’d be delighted to accompany you on your journey of life

How can online counselling help you here?

As part of the online counselling, you will be supported by an experienced psychologist in developing appropriate strategies for dealing with your fears. Especially in cases of social anxiety or fear of using public transport, online counselling is particularly suitable because it is anonymous and flexible in terms of time and place.

The following psychological elements can be applied during counselling:

  • Information transfer regarding the levels of anxiety, functions of anxiety, etc.
  • Revealing disaster fantasies in relation to the anxiety stimulus (e.g. situation, location, object)
  • Learning of cognitive techniques such as the Thought Stopping for the prevention of fear-promoting thoughts
  • Imaginative methods
  • Confrontation with the fear stimulus
  • Relaxation techniques
Start self-test


Individual counselling

Overcome anxiety

Recommended period of counselling:
8 weeks, option to cancel anytime

We offer individual counselling units, which can be terminated on a weekly basis. For counselling on anxiety we recommend a minimum period of 8 weeks. It’s important to note that this is a recommendation and actual periods of counselling differ on an individual basis.
