Biography

Karen has been working with children who have experience trauma and broken attachments since qualification as a Clinical Psychologist in 1997.

Whilst setting up a targeted NHS looked after and adopted children’s services in Suffolk in she became aware of DDP as an effective therapeutic approach that fit with her own understanding of theories around attachment and trauma. She began training with Dan Hughes in 2001 and has continued to find the approach invaluable. She has promoted the approach within the psychological services she have lead in Suffolk and then Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent.

In addition to therapy she also provides training and consultation for social workers foster carers and adoptive parents and also provides expert witness reports for care proceedings. The DDP approach informs all her work within the NHS, local authorities and private practice.
