I do speak English.

When the on site teaching starts again, the counseling center will operate on Drotárská cesta. The room number will be announced in due time.

External consultations

I can also, if it suits you better, arrange consultations with colleagues from the external environment, or I can provide you with contact details for an external Psychological Counseling Center, with which the school has an agreement.

This external Psychological Counseling Center is aimed at university students, it is free of charge, but although it is relatively busy, it accepts AFAD students. It also allows You to consult personal crises and difficult life situations, mental difficulties, or states before making important decisions, or even specific study, partner or other interpersonal problems.
