The Student Counseling Center, which was founded in 2001 by decision of the University Senate, aims to provide counseling and psychological support to undergraduate and graduate students of all Departments of the University.

The Senate of Harokopio University (Decision no. 372/17.10.2019) in honor of the late Professor Aikaterini Maridakis Kasotaki, former Vice-Rector of the University, who herself initiated the founding of the Counseling Center, has decided to rename it the “Aikaterini Maridakis Kasotaki Counseling Center“.

Professor Aikaterini Maridakis Kasotaki had made a significant contribution to the administration of the University, having served twice as Vice-Rector, as well as to its daily life as an academic teacher. The most important achievement of her efforts is the Counseling Center, which she left as a legacy to the University and which she served with great passion.

> Activities

Individual Counseling

Individual counseling involves providing psychological and counseling support during individual sessions, and is provided to students who face personal problems (difficulties in adapting to the new environment, decision-making difficulties, lack of interest, psychosomatic manifestations, eating disorders, phobias, depression, anxiety, addiction, etc.), study-related problems (learning difficulties, exam anxiety, poor time management, etc.), communication problems with parents, friends, or partners, or problems related to life events (illness, death, disasters, etc.).

Group Counseling

Group counseling involves providing psychological and counseling support during group sessions that take place throughout the academic year. The following are indicative topics of these sessions:

  • Personal development and self-awareness
  • Mindfulness development
  • Improving interpersonal relationships
  • Developing assertive behavior
  • Developing creative expression
  • Anxiety management
  • Anger management
  • Time management
  • Developing communication skills

The counseling approaches used during group sessions are cognitive-behavioral (CBT), systemic, existential, and gestalt therapy.

Counseling Services

The aim of Counseling Services is to provide counseling and psychological support to graduates of the University Departments in order to help them deal with the difficulties they face in their daily lives as professionals. This service is provided at a group level.

Tele-counseling refers to the provision of specialized counseling assistance through the internet. It is addressed to students and graduates of the University who are unable to see a Counselor-Psychologist in person, or prefer remote communication due to easier access to electronic media. Tele-counseling does not offer the opportunity for personal contact between counselor and client. For this reason, it cannot replace a comprehensive counseling process.

Interested parties can submit their questions  here.

The privacy of communication between students and the staff of the Center is ensured for all of the above actions.

Other Activities

The Center of Student Counseling “Aikaterini Maridakis Kasotaki” organizes seminars, conferences and events related to psychopedagogical issues or issues that promote quality of life. It also collaborates with primary and secondary education schools for the implementation of programs aimed at developing the emotional intelligence of students, informing students and teachers about issues related to school violence and misconduct, informing teachers about ways to deal with learning difficulties, developing teachers’ communication skills, and more.
