OUR TYPES OF COUNSELLING
We always place the focus on you. You decide how, when and by whom you would like to receive counselling. We provide local advice, which therefore means you can book an appointment and then come to the consulting centre in person. You can also get advice on the telephone or send us an email. Not least because of the Corona pandemic, we also offer a video counselling, where documents can be shared online. Of course, a combination of counselling types is also possible if the counselling goes beyond a one-time request and becomes extensive.
OUTHER TYPES OF COUNSELLING
There is a special counselling service for young people under 27 - the Youth Migration Service (JMD). There you can get support if you have questions about school, training and starting a career. For digital exchange with other people seeking advice, you can contact the multilingual community "Together in Germany (TiG)". There is also a multilingual app called "MBeon" that allows you to ask your questions in a personal chat with an advisor.
All counselling options are free of charge for you.
HOW DOES OUR COUNSELLING WORK?
You do not need to register for a consultation. However, you must enter your email address and cell phone number when booking an appointment. After the successful booking, we will send you the appointment confirmation and/or the link to the appointment by email. If you don't have an e-mail address yet, we will be pleased to show you how and where you can create one for free.
CREATE AN E-MAIL ADDRESS
A privacy-protected email provider is essential for secure email consulting. Gmail or Outlook do not offer sufficient protection. Therefore, we recommend opening an account with ProtonMail.com and communicating with us via this platform.
ProtonMail is open source based in Switzerland. It offers end-to-end asymmetric and zero-access encryption. With 500 MB of storage and a maximum of 150 messages per day, the account is completely free. Both the platform and the support are available in several languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Czech, Macedonian, Chinese and Russian.
