Hello and welcome. I am a highly qualified, experienced  and  accredited relationship therapist, psychosexual therapist –  (i.e.  a sex therapist), and  a qualified sex addiction professional. I am considered to be one of the UK’s leading partner and couples specialists in sex addiction, having trained under the tutelage of experts  in the field both here and in the USA such as Dr. Stephanie Carnes, Dr Rob Weiss, Dr Kevin Skinner and Dr Barbara Steffens. I offer tailored counselling solutions for couples and individuals struggling with any kind of relationship issue, and I specialise in helping to overcome sexual problems including compulsive sexual behaviour or porn addiction.

I work in a variety of ways to meet  my clients’ needs. I can see clients face to face at my practice in either central London or at two locations on the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire/Glos border; and I support clients all over the world via a secure video webcam service. I can also offer telephone counselling sessions.

I offer some group support in the form of workshops and weekend intensives for couples and partners of those struggling with sexually compulsive behaviours.

You may decide to come for counselling on your own or with your partner. I am able to work in partnership with other therapists where it is beneficial to do so and I have a number of trusted associates with whom I am able to collaborate.

I am happy to have a no obligation telephone chat with you to see how I may be able to help. Please let me have your telephone contact details and I will call you at a mutually convenient time to talk.

From our clients

"I found Karen to be an understanding and patient therapist. She supported me in my own journey into recovery and helped me to realise that my healing was as important as that of my partner. She helped me navigate through a very difficult time and provided links to other resources which were also useful. She helped me to see that there was hope and that my relationship could survive and even thrive. I would not hesitate to recommend her services."

Partner of a Sexual Addict in Recovery

"I first started working with Karen in November 2016. I was made to feel comfortable from the very beginning sharing deeply personal and emotional problems that were shaping my life at the time. Thanks to her help, care, understanding, patience and commitment to me I learnt to value myself, build self-confidence, improve my relationship with my family and work towards achieving my dream of a different career which seemed like an absolute impossibility at the time. I have broken free of the cycle of addiction which I was in and now feel like a completely different person."

Recovered Sex Addict

All through my adult life I indulged in pornography, but with the advent of the internet it became an overwhelming compulsion. I kidded myself I could control it; in reality it consumed my life, changing my behaviour, taking up huge amounts of time and altering my relationships with those near to me. Going to Karen for help quite literally has saved my life – a real expert in this field of behaviour and its treatment. Her approach is understanding but firm. Firstly she enabled me to fully accept porn as an addiction and the profound damage it does not only to the addict but those close to them; secondly she provides a really effective structure with which to control the behaviour, and thirdly she helped me to understand exactly why this behaviour had had such a powerful hold over me. If you are in the grip of pornography you could do no better than getting in touch with Karen.

Recovered Porn Addict

When we first came to see Karen she acted as a bridge across a yawning chasm between us. With her help the gulf has been closed, but the bridge is still there should we feel the need to use it. We have rediscovered the love we have for each other and we now laugh a lot together.
