About us

We are convinced that mental health is the key to increased satisfaction, personal responsibility and energy. We work day by day with enthusiasm and passion to boost awareness about mental health – thereby making the (working) world a slightly better place.

The Fürstenberg Institut

The team of the Fürstenberg Institute

More than 30 years ago, Reinhild and Werner Fürstenberg founded the Fürstenberg Institut – motivated by a deep conviction that supporting and empowering employees and managers is essential for the success of companies. As pioneers of external employee and management counseling in the German-speaking world, we have stood for the effective promotion of employees’ mental health and performance for many years now. We draw upon our many years of experience and networked competencies to support companies and executives individually in challenging situations – thereby contributing, with our committed, interdisciplinary team, to sustainably improving the corporate world.   

Our team

Through our work, we promote the mental health of employees. The meaningful nature of the task and the fact that we are working together towards a common goal unites us. It spurs us on to give of our best every day. We value diversity and individuality and support each other where we can. Whether it’s a creative break in the coffee room, a shared lunch, cross-departmental projects, special company celebrations or everyday work we are warm, passionate, open-minded and always have an open ear for each other.  

Our sites

In Germany, we have ten sites – in Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt am Main, Hanover, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Bonn, Ditzingen (near Stuttgart) and Münster. In addition, more than 70 specialist counselors at regional locations ensure our presence throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In addition, we also offer our counselings worldwide online and by telephone around the clock – because our client companies have employees all over the world. This means that we can guarantee the provision of the right framework for anyone seeking advice, at all times and in all places

Ranging from medium-sized family businesses to young start-ups and international corporations – our client companies are as diverse as the world of work. What they all have in common is their commitment to the mental health of their employees. When working together, individual support is particularly important to us, as there is the high quality of the services we offer and the sustainable benefits they bring. This is the only way to keep employees motivated and productive and companies fit for the future. The fact that we succeed in this is not only confirmed by our long-term, successful client relationships. We also regularly obtain anonymous feedback from those who turn to us for counseling and conduct surveys with our client companies. Top marks for satisfaction with our services and customer care as well as a 99% recommendation rate are a source of pride for us and reinforce our daily commitment to our work.
