Counselling services

Introduction

Currently two types of services are available at the counselling centre:

1. The COVID-19 pandemic has largely affected all of us and we have all been facing unprecedented challenges. The ELTE Counselling Centre is now offering online consultations of up to 3 sessions in order to provide support to all students and employees of the university in dealing with the difficulties due to the social isolation/quarantine.

You can sign up here: online.counselling@ppk.elte.hu

We would also like to draw your attention to the essential guidelines gathered by our professionals in order to help you cope with the anxiety and stress raised by the virus.

After scheduling an appointment, you can work online with a psychologist for 1-3 sessions. The psychologist will assist you in reconsidering your problems, provide you with support, and help you find resources to handle your difficulties. For the online counsultation we use Microsoft Teams (which works with your ceasar e-mail address).

IMPORTANT!

Counselling sessions are held in complete confidence, in accordance with the standards of the Code of Ethics for Psychologists. The obligation of confidentiality applies to all employees of the Counselling Centre.

Services provided by the ELTE Counselling Centre are free of charge.

2. The Counselling Centre continues to offer the six-session counselling service exclusively online for more general problems which do not relate to the current virus situation. You can sign up for this type of online consultation at online.counselling@ppk.elte.hu
