Study intending to explore the processes involved in online text-based therapy from the counsellor's perspective. Required: Clinicians (MA, MFT, MSW) who have engaged in online text-based therapy in the past 12 months.

Rowena Jopling is conducting research into understanding clients’ views on therapy as part of her Doctorate at the University of Surrey. In particular, she is interested in experiences of tension or breakdown in the working relationship with a therapist which may have been resolved or unresolved. The difficulties may have occurred in just one session or over several sessions.

As a participant, you will be asked to complete a brief (5-10 minute) demographic questionnaire that we will send to you via email. You will then be requested to participate in an (approximately) 90-minute interview session via text-based chat or Skype. After this, I will contact you to present to you my summary of our interviews for your review and feedback. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary and confidential. No names or personal information will be linked to the outcomes of this study.

If you wish to be entered into a prize draw of five £20 Amazon vouchers you will be asked to send an email to the researcher to request this. Your email address will be treated confidentially. Your questionnaire responses will remain anonymous, as it will not be possible to link them with your email address.

Being involved in this study will help researchers and practitioners better understand the online counseling processes and help establish better guidelines for engaging in online therapy and developing therapeutic relationship.
