Psychiatrist or psychotherapist?

In Germany, psychiatrists are doctors, and they can prescribe medication. Psychotherapists can only perform therapy with their patients. There are much stricter requirements to become a psychiatrist, so there are fewer of them. If you need therapy, see a psychotherapist. If you need medication, see a psychiatrist.

    I called Dr. Ole Georg Munkvold's office (number 12 on the list) and the person who answered the call said explicitly that the office doesn't communicate in English. It's quite disheartening.

      Hey Shae,

      Do not give up. Number 12 does not mention they do english therapy. And the list has both english speaking and non-english speaking therapists. Try below in the comments - they seem to be speaking english?
      Also, nr:

      1, 2, 5, 8, 10, 11, 14, 16, 19, 21, 26, 27, 30-32, 35-42, 45, 46, 47, and so on... just look in the right hand column for *speaks english* =).

      Good luck!!

      To our knowledge, ALL of the people listed below should speak English. However, there is no guarantee that the front desk also speaks English. You can always find a German friend who can help you book the appointment.

    I am a systemic therapist and have a private practice in Berlin-Karlshorst. Most of my clients (individuals and couples) have relationship problems (conflicts, power struggles, ambivalences, separations, ...). I also do family constellations for those who want get a new perspective on their family history.
    I‘d be glad to be on your list.
