Growing & Developing

In V.G&E.C. - CAREER ASSOCIATES we believe that development and success is a two-way street. For each young person that found his/her own way, for each student that chose his/her career path, for every parent who was supported in his/her demanding role, but also for each cooperation since 1991.

Our philosophy

In CAREER ASSOCIATES we are interested in advancement and progression. Each of our clients’ aim is our goal too. We support a person in planning his/her educational, professional and personal movements. We help people to strategically utilize their potential through expertise services, respecting the individual’s needs and values.

Career Counseling

Career Counseling is not simply providing advice and giving answers, but it is a dynamic, collaborative process that gives a client the opportunity to engage actively in the shaping of his/her career and life.


For us, education is much more than just teaching and graduation from the internationally accredited programs, GCDF, MHF, CSP, of which we are exclusive representatives in Greece. For us, education means that professionals, certified by our programs, will share and bestow a common vision.

Parents Corner

Being better parents means having a more material relationship with their children, providing a more effective support, so as to grow self-confident personalities. Being better parents means co-existing in harmony, respecting personal dissimilarities.

Why you'll Love Web Counseling?

When technology creates together with science and love for humanity, daily minor miracles can happen. Desire for improvement, realization of a non-functional situation or the need for consulting services that suit any of you -a child or a teenager-, minimize the distance and clients can receive the same care and scientific competence with those who visit us in our Office. Quality of life is not a privilege of a few, but a right of all and for this reason we have created flexible products and services for all.

In the new digital era, the era of smart phones, but not so smart everyday conditions that may hold some people back from realizing their goals, or conditions that can lead to a series of non-functional habits, we believe that we can and must stand close to those (parents, teenagers or children) who need counseling services, guidance, solutions. Each person that addresses to us is treated with professionalism and responsibility either if he/she visits us in our premises or if he/she visits us virtually through on-line communication. Giving all our energy in this initiative, we believe that everyone, not only the residents of Athens, deserves to have the opportunity for a better life. We invest in Career Counselling for young people, children and teenagers who represent the future.
Your desire and confidence in the integrity of our services and the quality of our partners are essential. Send your request, or call us so as to arrange our first online appointment. All you need is internet connection, a skype account and a PC, smart phone or tablet. The sessions are exactly the same, concerning characteristics of quality and time, with the ones that take place in our Office and are treated with the same consistency, flexibility and confidentiality
The first meeting of the counseling process is just the beginning for an experience that significantly changes the lives of both the Counselor and the client, in a way that each humanistic science interacts. Many issues when kept hidden to silence provoke negative emotions. Even for these issues there is a solution. When someone realizes a situation, that he/she either wants to eliminate or improve, the first step is taken. There is progress if the client keeps on this path with the counselor. If these two can work with consistency, professionalism and regard/concern, we can talk about success. This kind of success is not threatened by geographic parameters and boundaries.
