When it comes to health, it's important to have a doctor who speaks your language. Mental health is no exception. Below is a list of psychiatrists and psychotherapists who speak English in Berlin. This list is gathered from different sources, but it is still incomplete. If you know an English-speaking psychiatrist or psychotherapist, let us know, and we will add him or her to the list.

Psychiatrist or psychotherapist?

In Germany, psychiatrists are doctors and are allowed to prescribe medicine, whereas psychotherapists may only be allowed to perform therapy with their patients. There are much stricter requirements to become a psychiatrist, and as such, there are much fewer of them available. If you need therapy, see a psychotherapist. If you need medication, see a psychiatrist.

In any case, it's a good idea to see a general practitioner and get a prescription for psychiatry or therapy sessions, as it might not be covered by your health insurance company otherwise.

For more information on psychotherapy and psychiatry in Germany, have a look at the US Embassy's excellent guide on the topic.

How hard is it to find a psychotherapist?

Finding a psychotherapist in Germany is difficult, especially if you are looking for an English-speaking therapist. According to Tagesschau, getting a first appointment with a therapist that supports public health insurance takes 3 months in Berlin.
