About me

Dr Amber Keenan enjoys working collaboratively with people who wish to gain a better understanding of their identity, as part of a journey of exploration and personal growth. She provides a safe place to explore how individual differences and experiences affect self-esteem, wellbeing, and relationships.

Amber encourages people to understand these differences, learn to embrace them, and move forward from “stuck” places. Such experiences may include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, complicated grief, somatisation, obsessive-compulsiveness, adjustment problems, relational differences, and trauma.

Amber specialises in adult mental health. She works on an integrative, individualised basis in person and online. She supports people to reach a place of acceptance whether related to mental health, sexuality, gender identity, faith, race, neurodivergence or other intersection. Therapy will help you process your distress and build the skills to manage these difficulties so that you can live a fuller, happier life.

Amber offers a safe space to explore and contain emotions. She has held various senior clinical positions in the NHS, predominantly in secondary care mental health services.

Much of Amber’s work is underpinned by Schema Therapy, and more broadly, by the principals of intersectionality. She regularly incorporates, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Mindfulness, Behavioural Activation, Compassionate Mind, and Phase-based Interventions in her work.

Amber is also an experienced Gender Specialist who is able to provide psychological assessment and therapy for people experiencing distress associated with gender dysphoria / gender incongruence. She is the former Clinical Lead of an NHS Gender Identity Clinic.
