The above research project has involved discussion between Person Centred Therapy Scotland and the University of Strathclyde.   It was initiated by Lisa McGilvray who is a tutor at Strathclyde University on the MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy course.  She consulted and collaborated with Tonia Higgins, the secretary from Person-Centred Therapy Scotland.  The project will be carried out by 6 MSc students in counselling and psychotherapy; Charlotte Porter, Andrew Hogg, Hiren Shah, Louise Legg, Beth Laing, Monika Nowacka under the supervision of Lisa.  You will be interviewed individually by one of the research students and the results will be written up at part of their MSc dissertation. 

You are being invited to take part in this study to reflect on how your training as a person-centred counsellor influences your work with clients.  The purpose of this research project is to provide evidence to inform the development of training for person-centred counsellors to meet the needs of clients. This evidence will provide essential policy and practice information for future generations of person-centred counsellors working with clients in a range of services.  

Lisa chose to carry out research with the Person-Centred Therapy Scotland because of the excellent network of person-centred counsellors and the commitment to the approach. This research project will involve interviews carried out by MSc students with only person-centred counsellors aged 18-70. The interview will be approximately 1 hour and you will be asked about 3 main areas of your training and practice:  your experience of your training, how it was helpful or unhelpful and examples of client work where your training has been particularly relevant.   All data collected is confidential and will be anonymised.  
 
You are invited to take part and if you choose to Lisa will explain the process to you in more detail and seek your consent before continuing.  Please note you can withdraw your data up to April 2020 by contacting Lisa.
