A pain in the neck! A phenomenological inquiry into counsellors' and psychotherapists’ lived experience of chronic pain. I am conducting this research project to complete my MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Regents University London.

I am conducting this research project to complete my MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Regents University London. My project has received ethical approval from the university and will adhere to both the university’s and BACP’s Ethical Frameworks.

As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with lived experience of chronic pain myself, I am interested in your unique insight and perspective of having chronic pain, what this can tell us about the value of psychotherapy/counselling for clients in chronic pain and what you may have found helpful, as well as what you may have found unhelpful.

If you would like more information and are considering taking part in my project, which would involve approximately an hour of your time in a interview preferably conducted on Zoom, please email me at

Thank you.

Kind regards
