Relational Research Methods in Psychotherapy and Counselling

It was decided that as part of this web site an effort should be made towards contributing scientific knowledge for psychotherapists, analysts and counsellors in their practice. Too many times in my view and as I personally came to find out, the therapist's understanding in relation with some specific situations within the therapeutic experience is minimal. This present research will hopefully help practitioners respond more creatively if not ethically to the phenomena it has set itself to explore.
