About the Presenter

Counsellor BA (Hons), Dip. Clinical Supervision and Consultancy, Prim. Cert CBT, National Advocacy Qualification, Independent Mental Health Advocate, Independent Capacity Advocate, MBACP.

Megan Karnes, Director of HoardingUK, first launched a one-page website which has now grown into a large network of support for people who compulsively hoard. Integrating Megan Karnes’ fourteen years’ experience of supporting people who compulsively hoard, family, friends, neighbours and professionals, HoardingUK is an organisation committed to increasing choice and control for people who compulsively hoard while ensuring that professionals are empowered to provide appropriate and effective interventions. Our focus is bringing a mix of professionals and people directly impacted by this complex issue.

Megan understands that the issues involved seem to transcend borders, and such whilst on a visit to Australia she is keen to host an interactive and engaged day to try to open doors and clear pathways to improved support for those impacted by hoarding behaviour, and those who want to help them.

Target Audience

For psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and allied health practitioners.
