I studied medicine at Cambridge University and Guy’s Hospital, London. I trained in psychiatry at Guy’s Hospital, where I conducted award-winning research, publishing in the British Medical Journal and the British Journal of Psychiatry. In addition, I hold the Institute of Psychiatry's qualification in cognitive behavioural therapy, a field in which I am recognised by the Royal College of Psychiatrists as having special expertise. This combined knowledge of psychiatry and psychotherapy allows me to make comprehensive assessments of my patients’ life difficulties. I have worked as a consultant psychiatrist in London and Brussels, with over 20 years experience as a consultant in general adult psychiatry. I practice in the NHS in Westminster and in Kensington and Chelsea, am an honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College and have an independent practice. I aim always to collaborate closely with my patients to properly understand their particular situation and to actively work with them to develop the most appropriate and effective long-term therapeutic plan. Areas of interest Anxiety disorders (panic disorder, phobias, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, PTSD); Mood disorders (depression, dysthymia and bipolar disorder); Psychosis (including schizophrenia); ADHD.
I found that in the short amount of time I've had with Dr Klemperer she was able to understand my situation extremely well and has already helped me progress toward improving my situation after one session.
I have seen Dr Klemperer twice now and in both instances she has been very empathetic and listened to all of my concerns with compassion. She is very practical in her approach and offers very sound advice and treatment plans that take your own views onboard.
Dr. Frances was great! She was so easy to speak to and made you feel really comfortable in opening up with her. This was my first ever therapy session and thanks to Dr. Frances I had a great experience. Definitely would recommend!
Dr Frances Klemperer made me feel at ease, not judged, she is extremely approachable, intelligent and understanding. She was able to diagnose me when we first met, I am glad I returned to see her the 2nd time. I left her feeling relieved and understood both times. She has given me great advice, diagnosed me correctly and assisted me in finding the correct therapy. I would highly recommend her.
In my initial consultation Dr Klemperer made me feel at ease and listened with great compassion and understanding. I left feeling much releived and with a clear path forward. I would definitely recommend her to a friend, family member or colleague should ther require similar assistance.
