Have you experienced ‘burnout’ whilst working as a counsellor/psychotherapist?

If yes, your participation will be greatly appreciated to explore therapists’ experience of identifying signs of burnout in themselves. This is a qualitative study, and your participation will consist of one interview, via zoom, and will take a maximum of 60 minutes.

To participate in this research project you will:

• Have experienced burnout whilst working as a counsellor or psychotherapist.
• Be a member of a professional body such as the BACP, UKCP or other.
• Have a minimum of two years of experience, post qualification.
• Have access to Zoom.

My name is Iris, and I am a third-year student on a BSc in integrative counselling and a registered member of the BACP. The study will be conducted according to the BACP’s ethical guidelines for research. Your participation will be confidential and anonymized. The interview will be ‘audio recorded and transcribed’ and if you choose you will be able to withdraw from the study by the 1st of May 2024. Any data retrieved will be stored according to GDPR and the Data Protection Act.

To participate please contact me via email to arrange a suitable time for the interview and I will be sending you a ‘participant consent form’ and a ‘participant information form’ for you to complete.
