Women’s issues have always been at the heart of Karen’s interests and her wide-ranging research includes non-verbal communication, money management and body image. She has featured regularly in the media, on television programmes such as Channel 4 News and Richard and Judy and in news media from the Independent in the UK to the Sydney Morning Herald in Australia.

With Professor Ben (C) Fletcher she developed the Do Something Different method for behavioural change.

She is now applying this approach to other areas where women lose control of their lives –such as their dealings with money.
