SPTI is delighted to offer an opportunity for graduates to share their research projects as part of our event alongside two expert workshops and a keynote speech. The following is just a taster of some of our graduates and the varied and fascinating research topics to be showcased on the day:


  • Claire Maskery, a Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapist working in private practice, will be talking about her ongoing PhD research challenging prejudice, through fostering compassion for misunderstood configurations of self.


  • Helen Swaby, a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and Lecturer in counselling at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln, will be sharing her research into the experiences of five trainee Integrative Psychotherapists in relation to their identified ‘true’ and ‘false’ selves during psychotherapy training.


  • Michelle Oldale, a Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapist, Trainer, Facilitator and Author, will be presenting her findings from two separate studies. The first study explored the experience of clients of size in relational psychotherapy. The second examined attitudes of psychotherapists towards their higher weight clients and the notion of weight stigma.


  • Alan McPherson, an Integrative Psychotherapist working in private practice, will be sharing his experiences of creating a research article from his masters’ dissertation, with the hope of inspiring current students and graduates to attempt this for themselves.


Book your ticket now, there is still time to join us on the 14th March!
