In 1956 Gyömroi and her husband moved to London, where she became a member of the British Psychoanalytical Society and practised as an analyst until she was 80. She joined the staff of Anna Freud's Hampstead Clinic, working there as a training- and control analyst. One of her training analysands was Anne-Marie Sandler. Probably best known among her published studies was The analysis of a young concentration camp victim (1963), a case study about a Jewish woman, who had survived Auschwitz in a group of children and suffered from identity disorders in her adolescence. Edith Gyömröi also wrote poems, short stories and novels.

In her opinion, schizophrenia could be treated with the methods of psychoanalysis by taking account of Sándor Ferenczi's theoretical concepts. In one of her studies (1933) she summarised the dominant features in the psychoanalytic treatment of schizophrenia, based on Anna Freud's concept of an analogy between psychotic acting and children's play, and Ferenczi's ideas about the period of omnipotence by magic gestures.
