All students registered at Koç University can apply to Psychological Services Center.
Psychological Services Center offices are located on the upper floor of Health Center.
The sessions are free of charge for both services.
Confidentiality is one of the core principles of psychological counseling, psychotherapy, and psychiatry sessions. The content of the sessions remains confidential between the student and the professional. Only when there is a serious risk of engaging in activities that will cause physical harm to oneself or others, with the aim of protection, this information is shared with the student’s family. If the information is to be shared with the family, the student is informed about this beforehand.
You can reach Psychological Services Center via phone at Student Health Center (0212) 338-1273.
Each session lasts 45 minutes.
The length of the process is determined, according to the intensity of the experienced difficulty, the person’s expectation and the professional’s clinical evaluation. The process can both be focusing on a specific problem and lasting shorter, or it can be of greater depth and long-term.
The responsibility of following the sessions belongs to the students. Sessions can be cancelled or delayed through e-mail or phone at least one day before the appointment.
If a student does not participate in two sessions without informing beforehand, considering that he/she does not want to continue with the sessions, his/her file is closed and he/she is informed about this. However, if the student feels a need later on, he/she can apply to Psychological Services Center and get a new appointment.
In emergency situations, you can reach Health Center at phone number: (0212) 338-1100.
