With the study one enters a phase of life in which important personal changes take place in addition to professional education. Old friendships are replaced by new ones and one may be far away from the parents- partnerships change and a longer-term social and professional plan have to be set up. Performance pressures or unclear requirements during the study often trigger self-doubt. If the problems appear to be unsolvable, the Psychological-Therapeutic Counselling Service run by the Student Services Bremen (Studentenwerk Bremen) can help. In addition to direct difficulties (such as work difficulties, examination fears), very personal problems (such as identity crises, depression, and crisis with partners) can also be brought up here.
Experienced employees with psychological education background work in the counselling centres. Of course the counselling is free of charge and bound by the duty of confidentiality.
