Charlotte Migchels

5th year trainee in adult psychiatry in Flandres, Belgium and the current president of EFPT

Charlotte Migchels

After a full year of presidency during a pandemic, a virtual forum seems like the only appropriate way to end my term.

The Local Organising Committee, the board and myself are looking forward to bringing you the best that Belgium and EFPT have to offer, through your screen to your living room!

If you do happen to find yourself in Belgium at some point, be sure to contact me for a beer, fries and a waffle with chocolate for dessert!

Promoting psychotherapy as a defining characteristic of the psychiatrist is the EFPT mission I identify the most with.
Former chair of the Psychotherapy working group and now part of the LOC for our 2021 Brussels forum, I’m tremendously proud to be part of this beautiful and hard-working community of European trainees.

Being involved in EFPT since 2016, as an LOC member of the 24th forum in Antwerp, and later as secretary general and treasurer in the EFPT Board, you could say I’m a real EFPT dinosaur 🙂.
I’m very thankful for all the wonderful opportunities and friendships EFPT has given me in these past years and very proud to end my EFPT time by hosting the 29th EFPT (online) forum from the beautiful city of Brussels!

3th year trainee in adult psychiatry and becoming a client centered psychotherapist.
My first encounter with EFPT was in 2019, at a board meeting taking place in Brussels. Later that year I participated in the EFPT Forum in Prague and was blown away by the professionality and the warm spirit the EFPT community has to offer.
I am honoured to now be part of the LOC for the coming forum in Brussels!
