Dear Ms Marcia De Wolf,

I am moving with my husband and child to Brussels soon. I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Couple Therapy Psychology from University of Barcelona.

1. I do not see many full time jobs in the area of Counselling Psychology in Brussels. Is it true that there are not many jobs in this area in Belgium?
2. I am also considering working as Psychologist in a school. Do you know if this is an area that has jobs in Belgium? In other words, does each school have a Psychologist? Is there are a Postgraduate or Masters I can do in Brussels that can prepare for such a job?
3. Finally the other option I am considering with my background is to do a Masters or Postgraduate in Human Resource Management as I understand there are a lot of jobs in this area in Belgium and my work and education background would help me to find a job. Still I would like to do Postgrad or Masters in HR Management. But in the public universities in Brussels I am unable to find such a Postgrad or Masters? I could find one in a private management school, but its very expensive.

Thank you so much for your help.

Kind regards,

Dear Inna,
Thank you for your questions. On point 1, I do think there are jobs in your area in Belgium, but you may need to do a more extensive internet search to find them.
For point 2. Most schools would not have a psychologist on campus. I assume some of the universities offer courses/degrees in this area but you'd have to check with the universities on this.
Point 3: There are degrees offered in HR management but perhaps more in non-university higher education settings (such as "hogeschool")? Again, this is so specific that you would need to contact school directly to get this information.
KInd regards, Marcia De Wolf
