Metanoia Research Centre


Dr Biljana van Rijn

Faculty Head of Research and Doctoral Programmes


At Metanoia Institute Research Centre we aim to

·         develop the practitioner-researcher  voice in psychotherapy and counselling,

·         engage in the exploration of our treatment theories

·         develop evaluation of routine psychotherapy practice

·         embrace, develop and explore the contemporary approaches to psychotherapy, and

·         develop psychotherapy and counselling training

Our research groups, led by the academic staff demonstrate our engagement with these different areas of practice, and are open to students and external partners who wish to join us. They are engaged in publications and involved in a range of national and international research events. ​All of our staff's and doctoral student's research and publications can be found on Mirep, the institutes Research Repository.

To that end, our Centre is a hub for different research groups and initiatives, contributing to a lively research culture and exchange. Our  Metanoia Institute ethos of high quality training and practice leads us to engage in developing research partnerships both locally and internationally, with  different professional, academic and community groups.
