Counseling Center

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

UNYP Counseling Center is available to help our university students by providing confidential free psychological counseling for various mental health issues, and is run in cooperation with The City Practice. To cope with the pressure and expectations that come with student life, the Counseling Center provides individual counseling, seminars, and workshops to support students in their academic and personal lives.

We can help with:

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

Aleksey Lebedev

Taking part in working with Student Counseling Center is a great opportunity for me to gain more practical experience in the field of counseling that I'm personally interested in. It will help me to become skillful and practical in my future carrier. I’m looking forward to work with any student that will require psychological assistance or some advice in problem solving.

Anastasia Papadopoulou

Always seeking the best side of every condition and decision, I would love to work with people that look for personal empowerment and the right path of life for them. I have been very passionate about counselling since it helped me reveal the right life for me some years ago and since then I have been trying to share this unique benefit with others.

Anastassiya Lyalko

My name is Anastassiya Lyalko. Originally from Kazakhstan, but already for 5 years in Czech Republic. This is my last years as a master student, I did my bachelor studies in Empire State College. I do have experience working with children in the hospitals, I also was working with adults, but not in the clinical settings. I strongly believe that  a good counselor is someone, who is non-judgmental, empathetic and self aware ( the one how is able to draw the line between student's experience  and their own), he or she should also be a good listener. My main goal here, in the counseling center is to help student  to open up, cope more effectively with their everyday problems. Sometimes it is extremely difficult to say what is on your mind. And I believe together we can find ways how to help, what to do and make positive changes. Looking forward to meet with you.
