Welcome to my website. I am Liz Karter MBE, considered a leading UK therapist in gambling addiction in women. I am also a published author of three books on this topic. You might have come across me on TV or radio where I frequently appear as consultant therapist. Perhaps you have read my articles and newspaper interviews on the psychology of addiction.


In the Queen's Birthday Honours 2021, I was humbled and delighted to receive an MBE for services to gambling addiction in women.


My area of specialisation is gambling addiction. This includes all of its causes and consequences which I have found to be stress, depression, anxiety, relationship problems and sometimes trauma.


I have built an excellent reputation for my work, helping women successfully overcome gambling addiction. I do work very successfully with men, too. I also help people overcome addictions to alcohol, drugs, digital devices and love relationships, including the complexities of online dating.


I have been a practicing therapist since 2001. I have worked within leading UK gambling addiction treatment agencies before choosing to become an independent practioner. I made this decision because I wanted to provide my clients with the time and attention it takes to overcome addiction.  My private practice, Level Ground, was established in 2010. 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 has now moved from 1-7 Harley Street, London UK  to be exclusively online. This transition was made to meet the need of  clients requesting my services across the UK and worldwide. My practice is now both national and international,  including the US, Australia and New Zealand.


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.
