The role of the relationship in client’s satisfaction within psychotherapy

n/a - July 17th, 08:54

Hello there,

I am Özlem Nur Tulum and I am researching client's satisfaction in psychotherapy. This is a master's project which is namely "The role of the therapeutic alliance in relation to the client's satisfaction in psychotherapy."
Do you want to be a participant in this research and add to our understanding of it? Or if needed Do you want to gain 1 SONA credit?

Description: The aim of this project is to explore the client’s experiences of change in relation to their psychotherapeutic process. We want to investigate how former clients experienced being in psychotherapy and whether they have experienced changes (positive and/or negative) related to the therapy. We will address former clients’ perspectives about their psychotherapeutic process and how they describe the relationship they have with their therapist (therapeutic alliance). You will not be asked what brought you into therapy related to your thoughts and feelings about your therapy journey. You will be asked 12 open-ended questions about your former psychotherapy process and relationship with your therapist. Your participation will take approximately 1 hour.

Eligibility: over 18 years old who have done any type of psychotherapy in the past. Participants must have completed at least 5 therapeutic sessions to be eligible to participate in this study.

If you would like to be a participant of this study please contact me via e-mail:

The study has received ethics approval by the Psychology Departmental Research Ethics Panel (DREP) and ratified by the Faculty Research Ethics Panel under the terms of Anglia Ruskin University’s Research Ethics Policy and the Code of Practice for Applying for Ethical Approval at Anglia Ruskin University.
