I am currently researching the supervisory needs of secondary school-based counsellors as part of my PhD study at the University of South Wales.

There is very little research in this area of supervision despite the recognised importance of school-based counselling as a mental health provision.

I will be looking to interview:

  • Qualified counsellors who have had experience of counselling in secondary schools (for at least 2 years post qualifying) and who have received supervision specifically for this.
  • Supervisors who have experience of supervising the client work of counsellors who have worked in secondary schools. The counsellors should have had at least 2 years post qualifying experience.

The confidential interviews will last 45 – 90 minutes and will be audio-recorded at a location convenient to you.

If you are interested in participating or would like to have further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me at imogen.harries@southwales.ac.uk

All data will be processed, stored confidentially, and managed in accordance with GDPR. The Ethics Committee of the University of South Wales has approved this research project.

Please be free to circulate this widely if you wish.

Very best wishes,
Imogen Harries.
