We were able to help you answer all your questions about studying and working with a child, but you still have a concern that you would like to discuss in a protected setting? There’s something you need to talk about but you haven’t been able to find the right contact person?
The Campusbüro Uni mit Kind also offers systemic family counseling! Feel free to contact Dipl.-Päd. Annett Peukert, who is currently completing an in-service training in systemic, couple’s, and family counseling at Institut Systemdynamik in Dresden. Ms. Peukert will be happy to offer systemic counseling for any interested parties in need of help.
In systemic counseling, we will focus on your topic of discussion, but also consider your situation in its entire system and context. Systemic counseling can help you broaden your field of vision and place issues in their larger context. By employing various methods, we can reveal the systems at play and their interactions, but above all the resources and opportunities available to you. You might discover new perspectives and points of view that have remained hidden to you so far.
Our counseling service will not prescribe any solutions. Instead, we offer you support in developing and implementing steps to reach your own solution. In the run-up, we will clarify together how your individual counseling process will look. You decide for yourself what concerns you would like to discuss as well as what level of counseling is necessary and helpful in clarifying your concerns.
Areas of discussion might include:
- Challenges in your study/work environment
- Uncertainties in decision-making
- Dealing with an impending, ongoing, or past separation
- Topics in your private life or family environment
- Personal development
Our counseling is available to you as a protected space. Your concerns will be treated with confidentiality. The counseling sessions are transparent, we meet you at eye level and will show you respect and appreciation.
Systemic counseling is free of charge. You are welcome to arrange an initial meeting.
In this meeting, we will sort out your concerns and discuss the potential process for ongoing counseling.
