Karen Doherty Couple and Psychosexual Therapist
Mayfair • Brighton • Canary Wharf

Who am I?

I am an experienced Individual, Couple and Psychosexual therapist trained at the TCCR in London.

At the heart of my work is a profound interest in the dynamics and complexities of relationships - those in the arena of work and career as well as the more personal family ties and sexual partnerships. We are social beings, thus the part that relationships play in our lives underpins the foundation of our individual wellbeing.

What do I do?

In private practice between London and Brighton, I work within a psychodynamic framework and integrate CBT techniques where required. I use my psychodynamic understanding to examine your conflicts and fears, working with you towards a sensitive and effective outcome.

The help that I offer ranges from short term, goal orientated work, to a more classical, long term approach focused on a deeper and more personal exploration of either oneself or the couple.

I work with individuals, heterosexual couples and same-sex couples.
