Counselling Centre

The Counselling Centre provides free individual counselling to all ELTE students both in Hungarian and English.

There are challenging situations in everyone’s life, when we feel like we can’t handle certain difficulties by ourselves. If you feel like you need professional help to solve some of these problems, please feel free to contact us!

Counsellors can help you with a wide range of difficulties:

  • Family problems and parental separations
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Work-related problems
  • Academic difficulties
  • Managing transitions
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Mood disorder
  • Problems with establishing contacts
  • Problems with self-esteem
  • Lack of motivation, doubts about the career path you have chosen
  • The loss of an important person

Both employees and students are welcome to contact us.

You can find the information you need to make an appointment under the ”Contacts” menu.

After scheduling an appointment, you can meet a psychologist on 1-6 occasions. The psychologist will help you to reconsider your problems, provide you with support, and help you manage change.

Please feel free to turn to us in confidence when you are stuck with something in your life, and you would like to talk about it with someone who will listen to you and help you get through any personal or study-/work-related problem.

Counselling Centre services are free for all ELTE students and employees as well.

Counselling sessions are held in complete confidence, in accordance with the instructions laid down in the Psychological Ethical Code, and Counselling Centre employees are covered by the obligation of confidentiality. Please find our privacy notice here.

The unique book collection was entrusted to a Board of Trustees associated with ELTE in 2004 by William McGuire (1925–2007) - an epoch-making American professor of social psychology, professor at Yale University, and honorary doctor of ELTE – in order to support the work of the Doctoral School of Psychology and to be the starting point for research on the history of science.

The private collection of books and journals accumulated by Professor McGuire in the course of his work is unique and unrepeatable.

The volumes and 17 journal series are valuable historical resources mainly for practitioners of social psychology and its frontier sciences, but there are also works from several other disciplines, as well as works on the history and methodology of science.

After the death of the founder, the McGuire family will further enrich the number of journals. Dr. Professor György Hunyady has developed a special collection of domestic and foreign publications within the framework of the collection, which is also constantly updated by the book material obtained through tender sources.

The collection is located on the 2nd floor of the Institute of Psychology of Eötvös Loránd University, room 215 / b.
