My names Jessica Pons and I’m in my final year of a MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Roehampton. I’m looking for participants to interview for qualitative research into therapist’s experiences of client antidepressant withdrawal.

Each interview will last up 60 minutes and will be conducted face-to-face. Interviews can take place at the University of Roehampton, via Skype or in a public place. I can also consider a home visit after an initial phone-call if we can’t find anywhere else to meet.

Participants must:

• Identify as a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist, clinical or counselling psychologist registered with a therapeutic body (e.g. BACP, BPS, UKCP)
• Work outside of the NHS (at least sometimes)
• Have experience of working with clients withdrawing from their anti-depressant medication and ideally some experience of contact with prescribers (GP’s/Psychiatrists)

If this is something that you’d be interested in, or you’d like to know more, please email ponsj@roehampton.ac.uk with your contact details and I’ll get back to you within 5 working days.

Thank you!

Jessica
