About Karen Young

As a psychologist, Karen has worked in private practice and organisational settings, lectured and facilitated personal growth groups. She has an Honours degree in Psychology and a Masters in Gestalt Therapy.

Karen is the founder of www.heysigmund.com, the website that brings the science of psychology to the art of being human. Every day there are stunning new insights into the human mind and the way we work, love, play, behave, relate, think and feel. We are learning more and more about what it means to be human, and how to master the art. Through her website, Karen explores what it means and why it matters.

She draws on the latest research to help people navigate through the normal struggles that come with being human including anxiety, stress, depression, parenting, relationships, dealing with difficult people, happiness, confidence and how to be the best version of ourselves that we can be.

Experience has taught her that people can do amazing things with the right information, psychology has something for everyone, jargon doesn’t, everyone has a story to tell, short bios are the longest to write, nobody has it all figured out and the best people to be around are the ones who already know this.
