Is my psychologist registered for the current calendar year?

The title of psychologist is protected by law in Belgium. Only registered psychologists may use the title. Using this search function, you can check whether someone appears on the official list of registered psychologists.

What does this search function show?

  • The search result shows whether a psychologist is registered on the official list of psychologists in Belgium. This means that he endorses the legally binding Code of Ethics for psychologists.
  • If a psychologist is registered, his/her surname and first name will appear. The postcode and town of his/her work addresses will only be shown it the psychologist has given his permission.
  • The results are only valid for Belgium and for the current civil year. At the end of each year psychologists have to renew their registration.
  • This function is not intended to search for a psychologist at random, based on region or specialization. Therefore you can use other search engines on the internet. If you do so, it is advisable to check if the person is registered as a psychologist via our search function.

What if the person does not appear among the search results?

Please check if:

  • you have spelled the surname correctly. The search tool is ‘space sensitive’ so beware of any spaces in compound surnames such as ‘Van den Berg’.
  • the person you are searching for actually uses the title of psychologist and/or works as a psychologist.

You spelled the name correctly and you are sure that the person you search for profiles himself as a “psychologist”? Then it is possible that this person is misusing the title of psychologist. In that case, you can report this misuse of the title to us. We will treat your report as confidential. If necessary, we will contact the person concerned.
