Welcome to
Brussels Mental Health Center

Brussels Mental Health Center is a young practice just a few minutes away from European Institutions, where you can seek help from our multidisciplinary team for a variety of mental health concerns


A combination of humanity, empathy and a down to earth approach are some of the important values in our practice. We are committed to providing care based on the latest scientific insights and guidelines in the field.

We believe it is important to be able to offer personalized treatment, for which both medication and talk therapy may be necessary. In doing so, we try to take your individual preferences into account as much as possible. However, a willingness to investigate your thoughs, emotions and behaviours is required.

We invite you to take a look at our website to find out how we might help you find the right treatment for you.
