ZPG Services

The ZPG staff will arrange an appointment at short notice to have a preliminary consultation with you. This will allow you to describe your concerns in detail and learn about the services available at the ZPG and its collaborative partners. Consultations can be offered in other languages if preferred. We then decide together which form of support would be most helpful for you. Our range of services includes:

Individual counselling

ZPG offers short-term individual counseling regarding mental problems. In addition, we are happy to provide you with information on mental health services available within the university as well as in the Aachen region and, if necessary, assist you in finding services appropriate to your specific needs. All consultations at our Center are of course fully confidential and free of charge.

Dates: by appointment

Group counseling

Sometimes it helps to share with other people who are facing similar problems and situations. That’s why the ZPG offers group counseling sessions. Here the participants have the chance to talk about their anxieties, to work on the roots and causes of their problems and to develop new perspectives in a secure environment. The group counselling sessions are run by psychotherapists and psychologists.

Appointments: on request

Crisis support

In case of emergency, there is a hospital psychiatrist on duty and contactable at any hour via the University Hospital switchboard (+49 241 80-0). Support will be provided in the form of outpatient or inpatient care as appropriate.
