List of English-speaking psychiatrists and psychotherapists in Berlin

When it comes to health, it's important to have a doctor who speaks your language. Mental health is no exception. This is a list of psychiatrists and psychotherapists​ who speak English in Berlin.

Your mental health is important. It's also important to get help in your language. Below is a list of psychiatrists and psychotherapists who speak English in Berlin. This list is compiled from different sources, but it's still incomplete. If a therapist is missing from our list, let us know.

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.

For more information on psychotherapy and psychiatry in Germany, have a look at the US Embassy's 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. It's much easier to find a therapist if you pay yourself.

  • Amy

    Hi there,
    I’m interested in EMDR Therapy and i have TK insurance.
    My English is okay, and I don’t speak German.
    I’m working here in Berlin, and my anxiety is getting worse. I have ignored this fear inside of me more than 10 years and I feel it’s time to have therapy... and I found EMDR.
    I wonder if I can find EMDR therapy with insurance coverage...

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello,
    I am in a very bad condition and I am unable to find Psychiatrist. Please help me .

  • Nicholas Chesterfield

    Good morning, I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get help from. I am an English speaker with a little German. I am insured by Barmer Krankenkasse but it seems impossible to find a psychiatrist. I have been referred for my doctor for an assessment and report due to acute depression.
    Can anyone help?

  • Shae

    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.
