Dr Funke is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and the Director of Ace Psychology Ltd. Dr Funke also holds the position as one of the Board of Directors for BUBIC, a substance misuse service for people in the community. Dr Funke graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from Middlesex University. Soon after graduating she was employed as a visiting Lecturer at Metropolitan University, (formerly known as the University of North London), and began reading for her PhD. Her keen research interests, at the time, were eating disorders and substance misuse. However, after some time Dr Funke felt that her career needed to take a different path; as her research PhD did not give her the type of clinical contact that she desired.

Dr Funke’s change of heart led to a career in Clinical Psychology. This enabled her to work with clients therapeutically; as well as keeping her research interests alive. She graduated from the University of East London with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Dr Funke is a member of the BPS (British Psychological Society). She is also an Associate Fellow at the British Psychological Society and a registered practitioner psychologist with the Health Professional Council.  Dr Funke has her private practice in London where she runs her Dr Funke – Take Control programmes.
