How has being close to someone who has trained and practises psychotherapy affected you?

Very little research has been conducted into the experiences of people close to psychotherapists and I believe this is an important area of inquiry.

I would like to meet and interview people about their experiences with the intention of understanding how being close to a person who has trained and practises psychotherapy impacts the lives of significant others.

I am looking for people who meet the following criteria:
• Partners, children, parents, or siblings of someone practising psychotherapy
• Have lived with the person practising psychotherapy for a period of more than five years during and/or after their training.
• Are over the age of 18 years

Confidentiality all information shared will be treated with absolute confidentiality. All efforts will be made to ensure participants remain unidentifiable in the final report and your privacy respected at all times.

If you agree to participate, then I would interview you for approximately one hour and no more than ninety minutes.

A small koha will be offered in appreciation of participation.

If you think you would like to participate or have any further questions, please contact Jane Tuson tusonj@icloud.com or 021 716622. I can send a full participation information sheet to you.
