Welcome to PSYLUX!

The directory of psychologists in Luxembourg powered by SLP.LU

As the exercise of psychology in Luxembourg is not regulated by law, except in the public service domain, the primary aims of the Luxembourg Directory of Certified Psychologists (PSYLUX) are 
  • to set national quality standards for professional basic and continuing training,
  • to protect clients seeking psychological services and consulting a psychologist, and
  • to inform potential employers on the proficiency level of psychologists.
The PSYLUX directory provides the guarantee to find a psychologist who is adequately trained, highly qualified and answerable to an ethical committee for his/her professional actions.

The online version of the PSYLUX directory has been launched in 2006 and will henceforward be updated on a regular basis. This online information service is made available for personal and scientific (i.e. non-commercial) use only. At the beginning of 2013, PSYLUX migrated to another platform to allow improved functionalities and more efficient membership administration.

Quality Criteria
Registered PSYLUX psychologists
  1. are holding (a) an academic master's, executive master's or doctoral degree in psychology from the University of Luxembourg or (b) an equivalent foreign academic degree, provided the degree has been obtained after a full-cycle university study of at least 4 years in psychology,
  2. are entitled to bear their academic title in accordance with the Luxembourg law on the protection of higher education titles, and
  3. have agreed to abide by the SLP ethical code.
Information on work experience, extra-curricular skills (e.g. language skills) and the like, are not or only partially verified and are merely indicative. Concerning professional qualifications (education, training and continuing education), the SLP reserves the right to make entries inaccessible to the general public until receipt of the corresponding qualification certificates.

Not all psychologists are listed
Since membership to the SLP is not mandatory for legal practise as a psychologist in Luxembourg, not all national psychologists with the corresponding qualifications are listed in the PSYLUX directory. Besides, the online version of the PSYLUX directory comprises no SLP members who do not wish their data to be published. Confirmation of registration status can be given by contacting the SLP executive board (contact SLP).

Important note for prospective PSYLUX registrants
Registration implies (a) active SLP membership and (b) written consent (in conformity with national legislation on data protection) from the registrant for publication of his name, contact information and professional/academic profile on the Internet (private contact information will not be publicly accessible, as mentioned above). Registrants are responsible for continuously updating their personal information (in case of address change etc.). Information on academic and professional qualifications provided by the registrant will only be made publicly available after certified copies of the corresponding qualification certificates have been sent to the executive board and acceptance has been granted. False use of academic titles (including postgradual degrees) is prohibited by law.
