for Students at Rhine-Waal-University of Applied Sciences
Welcome to winter semester 2023/24 ...
...and University´s psychological counselling service for students is still there for you - by phone, online and on campus in Kleve and Kamp-Lintfort.
Students who wish to have individual psychological counselling concerning their current emotional or social situation can contact Pia Weigelt-Lindemann, psychologist, via email to email@example.com and ask for an appointment.
Counselling is available in German or English.
Please expect waiting times because University´s psychological counselling service is staffed only Tuesday to Thursday.
Study-related topics in psychological counselling could, for example, be: feelings of overload, exam anxiety, anxiety about the future or other fears, depressive mood, feelings of loneliness, social contact difficulties, self-doubt, decision conflicts or learning, motivational and attention/concentration difficulties, procrastination, family or partner problems, problems with addiction, eating behaviour, sleeping or feelings of persistent tension and study stress in general.
And please note: psychological counselling is no and does not replace psychotherapy!

Psychosocial Advising Services
You are looking for advising services offered by the University or off-campus support to help you manage the stresses of student life? Here you will find addresses of, e.g., psychological counselling services, support groups, women counselling and family services, addiction advice, counselling in case of bullying/harassment or services of the Studierendenwerk.
Studying at a University is an exciting time filled with new experiences…
At the same time you are facing yet unknown challenges: adapting to a new, different education system, adjusting to new surroundings, maybe leaving your parents and moving away from home to a new city or even country and making new friends - all accompanied by the wish and also the need to, more and more, grow independent and the pressure that comes with it. Mastering these challenges can be a fun, enriching experience but it can also lead to stress and other difficulties that may seem impossible to overcome on your own.
Do you have social, emotional, psychological or psychiatric problems that strongly affect your daily life and hinder you in succeeding your studies successfully?
If you have already spoken to persons of your trust or consulted other contact persons or institutions within and/or outside the University and, after that, wish more specified, individual psychological counselling, then feel free to contact the “Psychological Counselling Service of the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences (HSRW)”. It provides short term individual counselling and support to students. Our job is to encourage your own “self-help efforts”, meaning, we help you to better understand your concerns and discover or build up your inner strength and resources. Step by step, building upon that, we are developing and implementing manageable ways for you to deal with your concerns.
Get in Contact:
For general questions or your request for an appointment, please send a short email to: Pia Weigelt-Lindemann, psychologist, firstname.lastname@example.org. She will get back to you by email with further information as soon as possible, e.g., how to schedule individual appointments. Please note: unencrypted emails are no secure form of communication. We therefore ask you, to ensure privacy, to give details of your situation only in personal conversations.
Important to know:
Psychological counselling is always free of charge, absolutely confidential and can also be anonymous, if you wish. Medical confidentiality is valid towards third parties and also all employees of the University. Our psychological counselling takes into consideration the individual diversity of the origin, biography, personality and life style of the person seeking advice and is specialized in the specific challenges of student life and academic studies.
