My research is aiming to explore how secondary trauma and stress syndrome affect the counsellor/psychotherapist, whilst counselling clients, who experience trauma themselves.

The focus will be on how the counsellor/psychotherapist understands the impact of the relationship with the client regarding their professional capacity of their roles.

I am seeking qualified counsellors/psychotherapists for a face to face semi-structured interview lasting 50-60 minutes located at University of East London. I require 6 participants.
