She is a 3rd year Doctoral Student at the Metanoia Institute in London, researching:


On Being-in-the-digital world: The Practice of Gestalt Psychotherapy online 


This international research study will inquire into Gestalt therapists' experiences of clinical work in the online environment, and is being explored in three stages involving focus groups, a survey questionnaire including open questions for free text comments and online interviews with Gestalt therapists.  An overview of the research was presented at the UKCP International Research Conference in June 2022.

Phenomenologically exploring how Gestalt psychotherapists are working online may be the first international research study, to look at the process and practice of remote Gestalt therapy, based on the direct experiences of Gestalt psychotherapists globally.

A short survey questionnaire will be distributed across our international communities during October 2022. Your views would be greatly welcomed.
