Research participants wanted.

What is the purpose of this investigation?

This MSc study centres on a client’s perspective of relational depth (Mearns & Cooper 2005), identifying and exploring a deep relational moment in therapy, and in particular what it was that led to the client opening up to a relational moment and what occurrences in a client’s life may have been a precursor to enabling a moment of depth to be reached with a therapist. Relational Depth concept in psychotherapy research is still in its infancy although there has been a growing body of research carried out in the last few years, this research could expand this growing interest.

Would you like to take part in our research interview?

As part of an MSc Study, we are conducting 60-90 minute audio recorded Interviews asking participants (*Fully Qualified Person Centred Therapists) who have experienced a moment of Relational Depth in their own personal therapy to explore this experience with a view to pinpointing the source of these experiences.

How to take part?

Times and venue are flexible and can be arranged around the participant’s location and availability. Rooms can also be used within Strathclyde University, Glasgow.
