I am carrying out research as part of my dissertation for a BA in Counselling Studies at The New College Durham. The ethics panel at the college have approved my research proposal.

The aim of the research is to gain an understanding of the thoughts, feeling and experiences of qualified counsellors when searching for paid counselling work. The research will also explore if securing paid counselling work was a motivation for participants to have trained as a counsellor and what the participants future plans are with regards to their counselling career.

Participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire which is available on Survey Monkey. A participant information sheet is available for participants to read before they make a decision about partaking in the study. This study is perceived to be of low risk to the participants.

If you would like further information please email me at: annahewison@gmail.com
