American starting counseling practice
I am an American citizen moving to Brussels for work this fall and we are trying to determine the best next step for my partner (also a U.S. citizen- we are not married). He works as an independent counselor/ therapist in Washington and we were curious about how difficult it would be to set up his own practice in Brussels. He has a unique background (Masters of Social Work + Masters of Applied Positive Psychology) and has a lot to offer the English-speaking community in Brussels. However, the independent work permit/ visa seems very difficult to acquire.
Has anyone set up a new practice in Brussels? Would it be better to try to collaborate with an existing practice or work as an intern/ apprentice to get his foot in the door?
Thank you in advance for your help.
