Bio: Karen is trained as a clinical psychologist. She holds a doctorate in clinical psychology (her thesis was on attachment and sexual behaviour) and is specialised in addiction. She has worked in both a DHB setting as well as private practice. After observing links between anxiety, low mood, chronic stress, physical health symptoms, addiction, and diet and lifestyle, she became curious about studying the gut-brain-axis, as this has not traditionally been a focus of mental health treatment. She is passionate about finding practical and empowered solutions for the current mental health crisis at both an individual and societal level.
