This evocative and thought-provoking book calls for an overhaul of how counselling and psychotherapy research is framed and conducted. Packed full of first-hand examples from a wealth of different perspectives, it puts forward an approach to research centred on practical wisdom developed through intense exploration of the lived experience.

About the Author(s)

Liz Bondi is Professor of Social Geography at the University of Edinburgh, where she contributes to professional education in Counselling and Psychotherapy, primarily at doctoral level. She began her academic career in human geography, which she continued while training part-time in counselling. After completing her training she joined SIHR. Combining her academic background in human geography (and the social sciences more generally) with her interest in counselling and psychotherapy, she has lead or contributed to a series of research projects about the cultural shaping of counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland. She also applies ideas from counselling and psychotherapy to the developing field of “emotional geographies”. She is founding editor of the journal Emotion, Space and Society and author of numerous academic papers as well as co-editor or co-author of several books. She is a COSCA-accredited counsellor who maintains a small practise in the voluntary sector.

Judith Fewell is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice in Edinburgh and Honorary Fellow at the University of Edinburgh. For many years she worked as a freelance trainer within the statutory and voluntary sectors in Scotland delivering workshops and courses based on psychodynamic thinking for professionals and volunteers whilst training as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist at the SIHR. She took up a post at the University of Edinburgh in Counselling and Psychotherapy during the course of which she contributed to the development and delivery of the postgraduate Diploma in Counselling, supervised masters and doctoral students and participated in the research programme. She has held a long term interest in, and commitment to, the single case study as a legitimate form of research into psychotherapeutic practices and understandings. This has led her to explore and write about how personal and professional narratives of the psychotherapist can help illustrate and illuminate psychoanalytic theory and practice.
