Hello and Welcome!

Let me help you. A professional therapy improves your quality of life, makes you feel better and gets you back on your path. I have successfully worked with over a thousand individuals with various mental health issues and problems over the years.

I am looking forward to meeting you, to listen to your needs and expectations and to discuss which kind of therapy you want. To make an appointment please click here.

Since 2002 I have worked as a psychotherapist, counsellor and medical doctor with eight years of specialist training in psychiatry and psychotherapy. At the same time I have written a number of books and articles in the areas of psychotherapy, communication and psychiatric medication.

Experience in working with many different individuals allows me to cover a broad range of mental health conditions, including

anxiety depression panic attacks OCD burnout social anxiety / shyness relationship problems work related problems sleep difficulties low self-esteem/self-confidence bullying/mobbing situations eating disorders adhd/adhs/add borderline disorder psychosis and more.

With the state-of-the-art approaches available today, most mental health problems can be treated successfully. I enjoy working with you, understanding your condition and explaining to you the kinds of therapies that are available. If you want to proceed, we can then begin your therapy.

Understanding your needs, listening with empathy and providing effective help and support are basic building blocks of any successful therapy.

My uniquely broad and in depth training and exceptionally large experience helps me provide you with a better, more individualised and effective therapy. I have trained in the two major schools of psychotherapy practiced today, psychodynamic therapy and CBT. To this I can add approaches from various other recognised schools of therapy to adapt to your problems, preferences, needs, values, interests and aspirations.

In addition, if that is your wish, I am able to explain to you, evaluate with you and prescribe effective and safe medication. This is an area where I have built considerable expertise over the years and where I keep constantly up to date.

Psychotherapy & Counselling
Psychiatric Medication


Psychotherapy looks at how one communicates with oneself and others. It looks at the dynamics and issues that can cause a number of symptoms and conditions. The ultimate goal is to enable you to lead a happier and more fulfilled life. Communication plays a key role in one's professional and private life. It is so pervasive that we do not realize that we always live and work within communication networks. Our happiness, the quality of our personal and professional relationships and thus our personal and professional success depend on our abilities and our skills to communicate with ourselves and with others in a meaningful away. Mental health problems and interpersonal difficulties often mean that communication with oneself and others has broken down in some way.

Psychiatric Medication may be helpful - if desired - for additional support, better sleep, less anxiety, less negative ruminations, more focus on the things that are helpful and enjoyable, better mood, better concentration, and much more. This can be quite a complicated field, but I have written a number of articles and a book that give both an overview as well as detailed insight into psychiatric medication.


I am looking forward to talk to you in person,


Jonathan Haverkampf, M.D.
