About

Hello! I'm Karen. I'm a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Oxford. I have many years of experience in both the NHS and private practice. I work with people who are struggling with a variety of complex psychological difficulties such as depression (from mild to severe), eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and others), anxiety (including panic, phobias, social anxiety, health anxiety etc), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), trauma/PTSD, body dysmorphic disorder, low self-esteem and many others.
As a Clinical Psychologist I have been trained in many different approaches (eg CBT, ACT, EMDR, schema therapy etc). The approach I use with an individual client depends on their difficulties and preferences. Our first session would involve me asking lots of questions to understand you and your difficulties and what you would like to get out of sessions.
I would be very happy if you would like to send me an email with some brief information about yourself and what you would like help with or to speak with you on the phone to ensure I am the best person for you to see. If I think I am not the best person, I will try to offer you the details of someone else who may be better suited to you.
