  • Consulting for adolescents »

    Many young people have questions regarding partnership, sexuality and contraception. Addressing these intimate subjects in group sessions may be difficult. Therefore we offer adolescents the opportunity to meet our sexual educators for counselling on their own or with friends.

    These counselling sessions are free of charge and confidential.

    By the way: adolescents often have problems seeking counselling on their own. You are welcome to arrange their contact with us.

  • Advice for parents »

    In everyday life parents see expressions of their children’s sexuality which appear in different ways depending on the child’s age, state of development and personality.

    Mothers and fathers are challenged to deal with different sexual behaviours or respond directly to questions.

    Our counselling for parents will inform you about the psychosexual development of children and adolescents. We make suggestions on how you can discuss special issues with your child and show you booklets and books for children and teenagers which can support you.

  • Sexuality and disability »

    A focus of our service is professional counselling for people with learning difficulties as well as people with mental impairments and disabilities. We give advice in “easy read” (easy language). In addition, a broad range of illustrative and sensory methods and materials facilitates and animates the communication.

    Parents and professionals see different expressions of sexuality of disabled persons almost every day. Often they are confronted with their own bounderies or the disabled person’s boundaries of intimacy.

    Do you need information, advice or an exchange among professionals?

    We offer

    - Individual counselling for disabled persons in “easy read” language
    - Sexual education counselling for professionals taking care of disabled persons
    - Sexual education counselling for parents
    - Reflection on experiences in the professional practice
    - Training courses
    - Methods and tools for animated learning
    - Support for the preparation of concepts for sexual education

    Whether it is about issues regarding partnership, the wish for a child or sexual orientation: In all questions concerning sexuality, family planning or contraception disabled persons are particularly welcome at our place.

  • Love and lust (in cooperation with Hamburg AIDS Service Organization) »

    A workshop about love, sexuality and HIV/STI prevention for adolescents from the age of 14.

    We look at lust and love, sex and contraception, self-determination and responsibility.

    The teenagers get to know two counselling centres:

    At the family planning centre, we discuss all questions regarding love, partnership and sexuality. We also deal with issues of getting to know each other, the first time, contraception, sexual orientation and more.

    At the AIDS Service Organization, the teenagers look into HIV and sexually transmitted infections, routes of transmission and possible protection as well as what living with HIV may mean.

    The workshop takes four hours and can be offered in the morning or in the afternoon. It is also possible to divide the project between two days.
