This research is an opportunity to talk about and reflect on your experience of working with refugees.

I am a finalist student completing an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling at the Minster Centre. My dissertation is exploring the experience of white English therapists working with refugees and I am looking for people who may be willing to be interviewed as part of my research.

  • Are you white English?
  • Are you a qualified UKCP/BACP registered counsellor/ therapist?
  • Have you got experience of long term work (more than six months) with refugees?

If you can answer yes to all of the above, I would be very interested in hearing from you. Participation in the research would involve one confidential, audio recorded interview with me of approximately 60 minutes. It would be conducted via zoom and arranged at your convenience.

If this is something you are interested in or have further questions about please do not hesitate to contact me via email at

Many thanks,
Philippa Lewis
