Activities implemented to fight gender-based violence (in english)
The goal of women-oriented counseling is to expand the individual design competence of women in their own life contexts in order to act self-determined and self-responsible.
In our work, we observe the relationships and interactions of material, social, physical and psychological conditions . We empower women in their own resources and accompany them in their process of developing new perspectives and opportunities for change.
With the founding of the club in 1980, the work was founded as the first Vienna women’s counseling center. We see ourselves as a point of contact for women with problems from all areas of the female life context.
We offer counseling and psychotherapy and, if necessary, targeted referral to specialized institutions. Our team consists of counselors of various basic professions (social worker, psychologist, social pedagogue, educational scientist, philosopher, lawyer, social scientist) with various additional therapeutic training (person-centered psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, psychodrama) as well as online counseling, women-centered career guidance, mediation and supervision.
