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.
Frances is brilliant! It was my first experience going to a psychiatrist and had many elements I wanted to share to give a wholistic picture of how I got to where I was and she was very calm and welcoming.Made me feed very comfortable and in a non judgmental and safe space. She took the time to truly understand my situation and was compassionate. I would absolutely recommend Frances to any one for any variety of issues.
I had a private consultation with Dr Klemperer on 15th October 2018 and she was absolutely brilliant. She really took the time to truly understand in great detail everything I had been experiencing over the years - she was highly attentive, a great listener and very thorough. I felt very reassured by her attention to detail, her obvious extensive knowledge and her friendly and caring approach. She was warm, encouraging and insightful. I would highly recommend Dr Klemperer to anyone seeking a psychiatrist.
Dr Klemperer was absolutely brilliant. Very intelligent as well as warm, highly practical, and bang on with her diagnoses and treatment. She was also so kind in her emails to me when I asked for advice, even out of hours - providing detailed responses that went way above and beyond the standard level of care. Highly, highly recommend
Dr Klemperer was thorough, thoughtful, kind and compassionate -she made me feel comfortable and made me feel I was in very capable hands.
