Who am I?

I am a final year MSc Counselling student at the University of Northampton. As part of my degree I am required to conduct research within the field of counselling for my final year dissertation project. My interest in emotional abuse has been ignited by my own personal experience as a victim of emotional abuse and as a trainee counsellor having encountered and worked with emotional abuse.

Ethical approval for this research has been granted by the Ethics Committee of the University of Northampton.
