What are the challenges that counsellors face with self care?

Participants needed for a research study exploring the challenges that qualified and student counsellors face with self care. I’m particularly interested in the role and importance self care plays in the profession, how we find self care practises that work for us, what gets in the way of our self care, and changes in self care over time.

This research has been approved by Heartwood College for Counselling and Psychotherapy, where I’m a second year student working on a research project to learn about the importance of research in counselling.

To participate in this study, you must be a qualified practicing counsellor or a trainee counsellor.

You are invited to complete an online survey of multiple choice and open-ended questions. The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
