My name is Reda Hamam; I am a psychotherapist at Improving Access to Psychological Services (IAPT). I am doing a qualitative research on the transition and transformation process to moving into IAPT service for (non IAPT trained) High Intensity Psychotherapists.

The research is being conducted as part of a doctorate in Health and Social Care Practice and will eventually be published as a thesis as part of the doctorate study.

I am currently looking for participants for my research project that will commence in January 2018.

Inclusion criteria: Experienced psychotherapists and counsellors (non IAPT trained) who provide High Intensity Therapy in IAPT services ( Step 3). ‘Experienced’ psychotherapists comprises: qualified and registered with British Association of Behaviour and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP), British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or British Psychological Society (BPS); accredited or eligible for accreditation with these bodies.

Please email me for a participant Information Sheet.

To say thank you for participating in the research an M & S voucher of £50 will be handed in after the interview.

Please feel free to contact me if you require any further information by email reda.hamam@rdash.nhs.uk

Thank you
Reda
