Are you a qualified practising Psychotherapist or a Counsellor who went through a significant personal relationship breakup while practising psychotherapy? Would you be willing to share your experiences in a confidential interview which will form a part of  my study? 

I am an integrative psychotherapist and I am conducting this research as part of my MA in Advanced Clinical practice in Psychotherapy and Counselling. The Research Ethics Committee of my training institution, The Minster Centre in London, has approved my research proposal and my research will be supervised until its completion.

I am interested in interviewing a small number of participants practising in the UK. Whether you were in a committed romantic relationship, cohabiting, engaged or married, this significant personal relationship must have lasted for at least one year and it ended one to five years ago. I would like to find out more about  your experience and how you made sense of it. By taking part in this study you would be contributing to a greater understanding of the experience of a personal relationship loss for a therapist and how such life experience and a potential personal crisis relates to other aspects of their life and their work as a psychotherapist.

The confidential, one to one, semi-structured interview will be conducted via online video platform Zoom at a mutually agreed time and it will take approximately one hour to complete. Your confidentiality and privacy will be protected at all times.

If you are interested in participating or would just like to find out more, please contact me by email:

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you
