Welcome to my website. I am Liz Karter MBE, considered a leading UK therapist in gambling addiction. I am also a published author of three books about gambling addiction in women. In the Queen's Birthday Honours 2021, I was humbled and delighted to receive an MBE for services to gambling addiction in women.
You might have come across me on TV or radio where I frequently appear as consultant therapist, or perhaps read my articles and newspaper interviews on the psychology of addiction. Maybe you have heard my podcast, 'Level Ground Therapy with Liz Karter'. You can listen and get an introduction to the way I work by clicking the button at the top of this text.
My area of specialisation is all gambling addiction related problems including stress, depression, anxiety and relationship difficulties. I have built an excellent reputation for my work helping women successfully overcome gambling addiction, however, I do provide very successful treatment for men, too. I also help people overcome addictions to alcohol, drugs, digital devices and love.
I have been a practicing therapist since 2001, both within leading UK gambling addiction treatment agencies and my private practice, Level Ground, established in 2010. Adding online therapy has helped my practice to expand nationally and internationally. I have many clients who are based overseas and we are able to work very well together. Over the years I have helped literally hundreds of people to live happier, healthier lives. Clients tell me that they find me professional, approachable, clear, supportive and empathic.
My practice is based at 1-7 Harley Street, London and at 123 Cannon Street City of London, where I am able usually able to see you in person. However, at the moment, as we come through the pandemic, my work with you would be via telephone or video link. Even before the pandemic, video call and telephone appointments were proving increasingly popular. They work very well for my clients who cannot get into London and enable me to see clients across the UK and worldwide.
If you have any questions which my website does not answer then do please get in touch by telephone or email and I will be happy to help.
