I am a third year MA Counselling and Psychotherapy student at Liverpool John Moores University. This research is being completed to fulfil the academic requirement of the course. I am hoping to recruit counsellors and psychotherapists from person-centred or other theoretical backgrounds with experience of working with children and young people who have suffered developmental trauma.

If interested, you would need to have developed an understanding of this cohort over a period of at least a year - and with more than one client within the last 5 years. You would also need to be registered with a counselling and psychotherapy professional body. (e.g. BACP, UKCP etc)

The project will be conducted by semi structured interview conducted online at a time convenient to the participant which would take approximately 60-90 minutes. The interview would be conducted using an appropriate online platform and the interview will be audio/video recorded.

This project has been approved by the Research Ethics Panel of the Faculty of Health at the University.

If this sounds like something that interests you, please contact me HBlair@2018.ljmu.ac.uk

I will answer any questions and forward a participant information sheet to help you decide if you want to take part.

Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you.

Helen.
