I am undertaking a research project that explores the experience of having a long term skin condition and its implication for therapeutic practice. I am particularly interested in exploring how therapists make sense of their skin condition in both their personal process and in the therapeutic process.
I would like to hear from you if you:
- are a qualified therapist (counsellor, psychotherapist, counselling psychologist)
- have an established practice and/or are working as a therapist
- have or have had a skin condition (for instance psoriasis, eczema, allergic dermatitis etc.) that contributes to your skin being sensitive or itchy
- feel that your skin condition plays or has played an important part in your personal process and therapeutic practice
If you fulfil the above criteria and would be interested in taking part, then please contact me. Your participation would involve taking part in a confidential audio recorded interview at a location convenient to you. I expect this interview would last between 60 to 90 minutes.
This research project is part of the Minster Centre MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and has been approved by the Minster Centre’s Ethics Committee. My research – including interviews and data storage - is being supervised and conducted in accordance with the BACP’s ethical guidelines.
If you would like to know more, please contact me for further information.
