Publishing with Confer and Karnac Books

Those of you familiar with Karnac Books as a publishing house will know that Karnac has been a specialist publisher of books about psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for over 70 years. The trade name Karnac, along with the bookshop, was acquired by Confer Ltd in 2020. Confer is now housing two publishing imprints: Confer Books and Karnac Books.

Published for all those interested in psychotherapeutic ideas, our books are designed to deepen our understanding of psychological, relational and emotional processes. In both imprints we embrace the values of inclusivity and creativity within the field and are dedicated to publishing contributions from the full range of schools of thought, from established authors to new writers.

You can see our full range of titles, and instructions for submitting proposals and manuscripts on the Confer and Karnac Books website.
