I’m very pleased to share the great news that our graduate Jeanette Hennigan is the deserving winner of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’s (BACP) New Researcher Award for her pioneering study “’UK secondary school therapists communication with with their pupils and their future intentions”.
You may have read about Jeanette’s work in the Autumn edition of TILT Magazine, where she shared more about the study with our Associate Editor for Research, Dr Stephen Goss as part of our regular Research Review column. Her final study will form the backbone of her being awarded her Doctorate in Psychotherapy by Professional Studies with the Metanoia Institute.
Jeanette invested in her continuing professional development in online work by successfully completing our BACP endorsed Certified Cyber Facilitator training. We take great pride in every one of our students at OTI, and so it is with immense pleasure that we see a graduate getting the recognition deserved in wider accolade of such a ground breaking study!
Jeanette’s award presentation will take place at the BACP Research Conference in May in Nottingham at 10am on the Saturday, and you can also take advantage of Dr Stephen Goss being there to find out more about the Metanoia DPsych programme. Look out for his poster “Developing Counselling as a Practitioner-Researcher: The Experience of Undertaking the “Research Journey” for Mid-Career Practitioners in Counselling and Psychotherapy” and chat with him about how you can take your budding doctoral ideas forward. He will also be talking about his new book “Making Research Matter”, which features a chapter from me about my own journey on my doctoral award with Metanoia Institute!
Congratulations again Jeanette – we all raise a glass to you!
