Do you bring discussions about your therapeutic relationship with your clients that occur in the here-and-now into your therapy sessions?

This study aims to investigate the experiences and feelings of counsellors using immediacy in their work. I am interested in exploring how immediacy is perceived and used in practice by qualified counsellors.

I am seeking qualified counsellors to take part in this study. All theoretical modalities are welcome.

The research will involve taking part in a face-to-face interview with me. The interview will take approximately one hour. Interviews can be conducted at the University of Greenwich or via Skype at a time that suits you. All transcribed interview data will use pseudonyms with identifying information removed or altered to ensure anonymity for participants.

This is part of a counselling masters dissertation project. This research project has been approved by the University of Greenwich’s Ethics Panel.

Please email ks4825d@greenwich.ac.uk if you would like to take part in this research or if you would like more information.

Thank you!

Katie Smith-Allen
