Clinical psychologist and psychosexologist (she/her)
Dr Karen Gurney is a clinical psychologist and psychosexologist on a mission to improve the sex lives of the nation. She is a recognised national expert in sex and relationships, leading both NHS and independent sexual problems services. As part of her mission to educate, inform and challenge widely held ideas that harm people’s sex lives, she did her first TEDx talk and wrote her first book, ‘Mind The Gap: the truth about desire and how to futureproof your sex life’ in 2020. She uses her Instagram account @thesexdoctor and online workshops to make sex therapy accessible to everyone, and to bring ideas out of the sex therapy room for social change.
When not working, you’ll find her in London with her partner and two boys, enjoying a cup of coffee, kickboxing or looking after her many houseplants.
