If you have already made up your mind which Consultant you wish to see, you may ask the office to arrange an appointment with the Consultant. You will be notified of the appointment date within three days (not including Saturdays, Sundays, national holidays, and days on which offices are closed).
  • Besides the Consultants, if you wish to see a psychiatrist, please make an appointment at the Health Center in advance.

  • If the complainant wishes to talk with a Consultant of the opposite sex, or if the complainant consults on three or more occasions on one case of harassment, two Consultants will be appointed to address the case.
  • The Consultant will help to find a solution for the case by interviewing the complainant.
  • If the problem cannot be resolved by consultation, a request can be made to the Complaint Committee to arrange a discussion between the complainant and the accused or a complaint can be filed to the Prevention Committee.
  • When a complaint is filed, a fair investigation will be conducted to confirm the facts.
  • Once the facts are confirmed, appropriate measures will be taken to assist the victim and punish the harasser.
  • Should there be any annoying behavior by the complainant against the Consultant, the Consultant may refuse to undertake or cease to provide the service.
