Ben Jackson

Grad Dipl. Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy
Dipl. Integrative Clinical Psychotherapy

I was born in Dublin in 1975 and spent almost all my life there until 2009, when I moved to Germany. Before that I studied philosophy at Trinity College Dublin, graduating in 1997 and then worked in business and the arts.

My interest in counselling and psychotherapy first began during my time at university and I wrote my thesis on an aspect of C.G. Jung’s work.

I continued to follow these interests informally for many years and in 2011 began training in humanistic and integrative counselling and psychotherapy at the Irish Institute of Counselling and Psychotherapy Studies (now the Turning Point Institute) in Dublin, graduating in 2016 with a Diploma in Integrative Clinical Psychotherapy.

I also hold a Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from Dublin City University and am a pre-accredited member of the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP). I have been living and working in Berlin since 2009 and have been seeing clients for counselling since 2013. These days my practice is primarily informed by psychodynamic ways of working.

Starting Counselling

Starting counselling can sometimes feel like a daunting step. If you would like to get a sense of how it might be, we can arrange an initial consultation which is free of charge. This first session is a space for you to explain what it is you would like to get from the process and to see how and if I might be able to help you, without any commitment to continue. If you decide that you would like to go ahead with counselling, we will then find a mutually convenient time to meet going forward.

To arrange an appointment, please call me or send me an email. I do my best to respond to all enquiries within one working day.

N.B. Please note that I don’t offer counselling to people suffering or recovering from an alcohol or drug addiction.


There is a charge of 20 euro for the initial consultation. After that, the fee is 70 euro per session.

Please note that my fees are not covered by German health insurance companies. I only accept private paying clients. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
