I am a postgraduate student in the School of Psychology at the University of East London, and I am studying for a M.A. in Counselling and Psychotherapy. As part of my studies, I am conducting research on factors that contribute to the non-disclosure of suicidality in psychotherapy.

I wish to carry out semi-structured qualitative interviews with individuals living in the UK who are over the age of 18 who have previously attended therapy and have concealed suicidality within sessions. Interviews will be conducted through the web-based video conferencing platform Microsoft Teams. The interview will last approximately one hour and will be held at a time that is convenient for you.

Your participation would be greatly appreciated. If you meet the criteria and would be willing to participate or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at u1615786@uel.ac.uk.

This research has been approved by the University of East London ethics board.

Thank you

Neville.
