I am in my final year of a BA (Hons) Integrative-Relational Counselling degree at Kingston College, and validated by Middlesex University.

I am required to complete a research project as part of my dissertation and am interested in counsellors’ professional and personal experiences of working with clients suffering bonding difficulties with their babies during the first three months of motherhood.

The clients must not have been diagnosed with postpartum or postnatal depression.

There will be one face-to-face semi-structured interview that will be recorded. All participants’ data will be combined, and a qualitative method will be used to extract the main themes.

If you have experience of counselling mothers during their fourth trimester, would like more information or would like to participate in this study, please contact me at 62138@student.stcg.ac.ukI can confirm that I have received full ethical approval from Kingston College, validated by Middlesex University.

Many thanks
Lisa Stalley
