You are being invited to take part in the above research study.

Why have I been chosen?

You have been asked to be take part in the study because you are counsellor, who has worked with bereaved clients and has experience of continuing bonds and attend regular counselling supervision. You will not be able to take part if you are not an English speaker, or not in current practice, or have had a significant bereavement in the last 2 years.

What will my participation involve?

As part of my studies, I am carrying out a study which involves doing an interview approximately about 1 hour, focusing on therapists’ experiences of continuing bonds when counselling bereaved clients.

Thank you for considering taking part in this study.

If you are interested in taking part in an interview, please either contact me using email address written above.

Many thanks,
Jacquelyn Tran
