About me

issam cherkaoui jaouad psychologue ixellesAs 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.Issam Cherkaoui-Jaouad-Psychologue-Ixelles

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.Issam Cherkaoui-Jaouad-Psychologue-Ixelles
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.

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.Issam Cherkaoui-Jaouad-Psychologue-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!

No need to hesitate, just take the fist step and get in touch !

Do you have other questions or concerns (for example how a psychologist can help you with your problem)? Just call our secretariat to make an appointment or send an email to the secretariat of Psychologist Belgium, to the attention of the psychologist of your choice.



Couples therapy

When a couple’s situation is such that the two people can no longer put up with each other, or that communication becomes practically impossible or at the least is very difficult, then it is worth calling a counsellor to try and re-establish communication and review the problems.

Psychotherapy sessions

What is fascinating in many of our psychotherapy sessions, is the relatively limited time that is needed before the psychologists understands your problem and has a clear picture of it. When you come to your consultation session and tell your psychologist about your problem, we will first of all consider together how this problem occurs, where it comes from and the impact it has on you and your life.

A Psychologist’s way of treating stress and anxiety

Human beings are by nature frequently subjected to fear: a threatening situation, moments in life categorised by uncertainty, and apprehension – there are so many moments which generate a feeling of fear or danger. This danger can be real but also projected, imagined, or produced by traumas which are our own and which we haven’t been able to move on from.
