About Philippe Grisar

I am a Lacanian analyst and psychologist whose private practice is in Sint-Niklaas (between Antwerp and Ghent, Belgium). I work with children, youngsters and adults which makes my practice varied. I volunteer as a psychoanalyst with the Red Cross Refugee centre in Sint-Niklaas where I am involved in sessions of inter-vision (‘super’-vision).

I was also a commentator in the Artists Village (http://www.warp-art.be/en/activiteiten/portfolio/kunstenaarsdorp2012.php)
