Karen Fisher Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist UKCP Registered

About me. Karen Fisher

My qualifications...


I completed the four-year training at The Bowlby Centre in London, where I am now a Member; and I am a Registered Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

The Bowlby Centre emerged out of a radical development in the psychoanalytic tradition: an attachment-based approach, pioneered by John Bowlby, which emphasises our need for others - and the impact on us when early relationships are insecure, dangerous or abandoning. As a psychoanalytic school, it also draws on the importance of the unconscious and internal world. It is a pioneering organisation, with expertise in areas that include trauma, dissociation, addiction and disability; and it has a passionate commitment to valuing diversity - as well as making psychotherapy accessible to people previously excluded.

'...those who have been silenced about their experiences and survival strategies must have their reality acknowledged and not pathologised.'
THE BOWLBY CENTRE

I subscribe to the UKCP Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct and The Bowlby Centre's Values. My work is grounded in anti-discriminatory practice - respecting and valuing differences in ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, class, educational background and income.

Prior to training as a psychotherapist, I qualified as a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming with the International NLP Trainers Association (INLPTA); and I also have a professional background in theatre.
