Coaching & Consulting

With our Mental Health & Leadership Coaching you can effectively support your employees in staying mentally healthy. Whether it’s in connection with personal issues, in a professional context or as support in everyday leadership - we have the right experts for all concerns.

Mental Health Coaching

Our Mental Health Coaching helps your employees and managers to find clarity about their concerns and their own solutions to challenges facing them. Our coaches help with targeted questions and input and support clients in seeing their own strengths, resources and potential. During the counselling, we work together to develop implementation ideas and pragmatic steps in everyday life. We aim to help your employees to regain their agency and also learn how to take care of their own mental health.

In our leadership coaching programmes, managers receive special support from our experts in mastering their responsibilities healthily and successfully. Our leadership coaches have first-hand experience of key aspects of the field of leadership, which enables them to serve as professional sounding boards to help your managers with all questions and challenges facing them, whether this is dealing with mentally stressed employees, coping with tensions in the team or overcoming their own uncertainty in the course of everyday leadership.  

Services included in Mental Health & Leadership Coaching

Crisis management after traumatic events

Unusually stressful events (such as accidents and violence in the company or even deaths) can often evoke strong reactions and feelings in employees. These crisis situations can have serious and long-lasting effects on team members and how they work together. We provide support in these situations with empathetic and professional crisis management. By providing immediate assistance (also on site) and qualified aftercare, we can help managers and employees to cope better with traumatic events and significantly reduce negative side-effects.

Couple & family counselling

People are always engaged in social relationships. If there are difficulties in a relationship or if a close friend or relative is not well, this can also affect the well-being of your employees. Our Mental Health Coaching is therefore also aimed at the partners and relatives of your employees - as group or individual counselling.
Care counselling

Many employees are faced with the challenge of organising the care of a relative or taking responsibility for it themselves. This can be very challenging for employees - not only emotionally, but also in terms of combining care responsibilities with their job. Our qualified and experienced care advisors support your employees in this particular situation. This includes providing emotional support, clarifying the situation, helping to find support options and providing assistance with care and possible courses of action.

Placement services - family care

Finding a place in a child day-care centre, looking for a nursing home or even finding care for the afternoon - many know how time-consuming and frustrating this can be. We offer support to employees and, if necessary, take responsibility for finding care staff or facilities. It goes without saying that we only consider childcare options or care staff who have been assessed by the Fürstenberg Institute. We attach great importance to outstanding references, personal integrity and our trust in personal impressions.
Legal advice

When it comes to legal matters or disputes, most people have major worries or uncertainties that also burden them in their everyday work. Our legal counselling by trained and experienced lawyers offers a professionally sound initial orientation in relation to disputes and legal cases. This includes, for example, initial counselling on legal issues (with the exception of labour law), checking documents or contracts, and outlining possible courses of action.
Financial literacy counselling

Our counselling in the area of financial literacy includes, for example, detailed budget counselling, analysis of individual financial situations, assistance in securing a livelihood and measures to stabilise financial situations going into the future. In addition, we advise managers and human resources departments on how to deal with indebted employees or wage garnishment.
Medical counselling

We are glad that the Fürstenberg consultations could be conducted so well online or by phone during the period of pandemic-related contact restrictions. During the Corona period, the support and advice provided by the Fürstenberg Institute has been of great value to our staff. Quite a few of them have sought advice which enabled them to cope so much better with the challenges of a changing situation.
