Research Clinic

Our aim is to develop psychotherapy practice...

MI research clinic has been developed in 2010 within the Metanoia Institute Counselling and Psychotherapy Service (MCPS), which was already an established provider of counselling and psychotherapy in the London Borough of Ealing (LBE). In 2015, MCPS became a part of the Ealing Talking Therapies Consortium and currently receives grant funding from LBE .

The aim of the research clinic is to engage in evaluation of practice within a clinical, rather than experimental setting. Practitioners use Routine Outcomes Evaluation (ROU) to monitor their practice in each session and accumulate practice-based research data for our Relational Integrative and Humanistic therapies. Drawing on decades of outcomes research findings in psychotherapy, the aim of the clinic is also to engage clients in monitoring their own progress and giving feedback to their therapists.

Over a hundred students work within the research clinic every year and see between two and 300 hundred clients, making the clinic one of the largest in the UK. Results of their work can be seen in our publications.
