About me Psychologist Ixelles

issam cherkaoui jaouad psychologue ixelles As a psychologist and teacher by training, graduated from the Faculty of Psychological Sciences and Education of ULB, I first present to you the different experiences and influences that have led to the accompaniment that I propose.

Having lived half of my life in Morocco and the other half in France and Belgium, I have developed a great sensitivity to the importance of the role we play within the environment in which we live. I have been able to develop a deep questioning about the meaning given to our existence and the impact of what is reflected back to us by the world around us.

This questioning has accompanied me throughout my training and has allowed me to develop a number of tools (Adler’s Sense of Community, Nonviolent Communication, Psychoanalytic Analysis, etc.) that allow me to accompany people towards a sense of existence that enriches them and allows them to evolve more serenely.

I also had the opportunity to work in day centers that specialized in different mental health issues (Addiction, Borderline Personality Disorder). This experience was very rich as it allowed me to combine individual accompaniment as a reference person with group accompaniment through various activities proposed and often organized by patients.

I really became aware through this work of the rich and complex relationship that exists between an individual patient’s problem and his involvement in his network (Family, friends, work, etc.).It was necessary to take into account these two aspects simultaneously in order to effectively accompany the person towards a more fulfilling life that is felt to have more meaning.

In addition, my experience as a psychology teacher has allowed me to enrich my skills in terms of transmission and sharing of knowledge and skills. I had the opportunity to teach in different areas that revolve around psychology such as developmental psychology, communication, Applied Psychology, Conflict Couple Psychology and Psychoeducation. I had the opportunity to teach a very diverse audience:

Adolescents, Adults already integrated into the world of work, Adults returning to studies and Adolescents living with disabilities. This experience was also a great revelation for me in terms of the importance of sharing not only knowledge but also humanity and connection. Giving consideration, listening, respect and even a form of friendship to students was the main ingredient for an effective, healthy and motivating transmission for them and for me.

It is through all these experiences that I propose an accompaniment that will lead to a rich and bilateral evolution.

At the individual level, for adults, I offer work on a variety of issues (Depression, Burnout, Grief, Professional or Personal Difficulties, etc.) taking into account the personal experiences and interpersonal relationships. The goal is to find a new balance that will allow you to break out of a certain stagnation and rumination that is, for me, the main source of psychological suffering.Psychologist Ixelles

I also offer work with adolescents on issues that are particularly prevalent in today’s society (School dropout, learning methods, career guidance, etc.). This will be an accompaniment that will primarily focus on the development of a combination of independence and autonomy through a relationship of respect, equality, and unconditional consideration.

Finally, I can also help and accompany you in terms of communication within your couple. In a duo, it is unfortunately very easy to get stuck in an interaction that gives the impression that no way out towards healthy communication and clear understanding is possible. I would like, inspired by the tools of Nonviolent Communication and the detachment allowed by a more analytical reading, to try to assist you so that we can reach this exit door together.Psychologist Ixelles

Taking care to accompany you in a non-judgmental and strictly confidential manner, I pledge to put my entire self at your service during our sessions.
I propose that we work together on the wonderful journey you have chosen and awaken the courage that is already within you!

A psychologist to help you…

A psychologist is a professional that looks after the troubles, complex or not, which affect our emotions, our stability, our well-being, and our “state of mind”.

The aim of having therapy is so that you feel relieved from one or more of the problems which are weighing you down and which had been unmanageable for you.

Therapy allows you to put into words things which will let you draw a line under these problems, or find the causes and explanations which will make you stronger and more able to manage your emotions towards these problems.

As a natural consequence, your general state will improve, you will regain confidence in yourself, and move forward on the path of well-being.

The result

The results vary from one person to another. Therapy allows you to put into words things which will let you draw a line under these problems, or find the causes and explanations which will make you stronger and more able to manage your emotions towards these problems.

Symptoms of worry, stress
