WANTED: Research Study Participants

I am undertaking an MSc in Therapeutic Practice for Psychological Trauma, and as part of my final year dissertation I am conducting a research study titled “A Thematic Analysis of the use of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) as a self-care tool in trauma therapists”.

I am looking for participants who can answer "yes" to all the following questions:

* Are you a qualified mental health professional (counsellor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse, social worker etc) registered/accredited with a relevant professional organisation (e.g. BACP, UKCP, BABCP, HCPC, GMC etc)?

* Are you trained in EFT to at least Level 2 (AAMET or equivalent)?

* Have you been using EFT with trauma clients and as a self-care tool for at least 2 years?

* Do you work in England or Wales?

If you are able to answer “yes” to all of the above questions and would like to find out more about participation in this study, please contact me at masha@practicalhappiness.co.uk

Many thanks
