Counseling Center

There is no “I” in psychology. You are not alone.

The UNYP Counseling Center is available to help our university students by providing confidential free psychological counseling for various mental health issues.

We can help with:

  • exam stress
  • presentation anxiety
  • adjustment to college life
  • time management
  • anxiety/depression
  • low self-esteem
  • drug/alcohol problems
  • eating disorders
  • culture shock
  • discrimination
  • other common student-related mental health issues
 

UNYP Counselors

Su Luo

I am a Junior Counselor at the UNYP Counseling Center. I am from China and have lived in several countries before coming to Prague. I recently graduated from the Psychology Master's Program at UNYP and am now attending Charles University for my PhD in Psychology. I have done trainings in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and would also call myself  Existentially oriented. I find the combination of these two schools to be most comprehensive of my worldview and provide me with a solid and thorough practical and theoretical framework for counseling. I have a great love for music and believe that music can be used for self-expression and healing. 

 

Yonca Cankaya

I am a second-year graduate Psychology student at UNYP. I came from Turkey five years ago for my undergraduate studies at UNYP and decided to continue my life here in Prague. I have experience in the person centered therapy approach, as well as, a strong interest in cognitive behavioral therapeutic techniques. My belief is that you have control of what you think and how you feel, which enables you to control your actions. I would be happy to support you in manifesting this in your life. Looking forward to meeting you.

                                      

 

Justine Piontek

I am a second-year psychology graduate student at UNYP. I have a strong interest in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as tools to support you in dealing with daily stressors. Before graduate school, I worked as a lifestyle coach for disease prevention and in various other areas of healthcare in the United States for over 10 years. I believe deeply in peoples’ innate potential to overcome obstacles that may arise in life. I will bring this spirit to our time together by openly listening and supporting you to find healthy solutions that work for you.

 

 

Jude Bradley

I’m a second year psychology graduate student at UNYP. I am from Ireland. After working in the healthcare sector in London for a number of years, I wanted to experience a new way of life so I traveled the world for 18 months before settling here in Prague. During my graduate studies I have come to favor talking therapy in conjunction with cognitive-behavioral techniques. Sometimes you need to be able to share exactly what’s on your mind without fear of being judged, I will be that person for you. I look forward to seeing you soon! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michaela Königová

I was born and have lived most of my life in the Czech Republic. I received my undergraduate Psychology degree from UNYP and SUNY ESC. Currently, I am in my last year of graduate studies of Psychology at UNYP. I am in application for a 5.5-year Gestalt Therapy training accredited by the European Association for Psychotherapy and the European Association for Gestalt Therapy. I have a graduate degree from Czech Technical University (CVUT) and I have been working in project management and human resources for the past 10 years. My main goal in counseling will be to use my previous training through a holistic therapeutic approach to help you with various difficulties including personal growth, motivation, stress-management and communication. Furthermore, I can specifically help you with issues like preparing for a job interview, navigating the right career path and overcoming the stressors of work. Also, I am interested in Life and Business Coaching, particularly using Neuro Linguistic Programming in cooperation with Cognitive Behavioral techniques. My current training will allow me also to support you with anxiety, depression, and relationship and multicultural issues. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially with my 3-year old son, and friends, as well as, engaging in various sports activities. I speak both Czech and English.

 

Ula Sultanli

I am a second year graduate student in Psychology at UNYP. I am from Baku, Azerbaijan and I speak English, Russian and Azerbaijani languages. Seven years ago, I started on my path of studying Psychology. After finishing my undergraduate studies, I worked as a School Psychologist, which was a great source of inspiration for me and provided me a deeper understanding of the profession. For counseling, I gravitate towards Cognitive Behavioural therapeutic techniques. I also believe in the philosophies and practices of Alfred Adler, which work to provide you a healthy, holistic view of your life.

Julia Perschke

Born and raised in Chicago, USA! Currently, I am a second-year Psychology graduate student at UNYP. I admire the work of Alfred Adler and will incorporate existential beliefs during counseling.  My undergraduate studies at the University of Missouri were a major in Psychology with two minors in Multicultural Studies and Human Development & Family Studies.  My previous training on a Crisis Team and in a Women's Shelter has helped me gain experience working with individuals facing difficulties from anxiety and depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, trauma and physical abuse. It would be a privilege to work with you to reach a place of healing and to create healthy coping skills for yourself. I will bring a judgment-free and authentic approach to help you find new ways to achieve your goals, ideally creating great insight into your challenges, barriers, and patterns.
