A qualitative exploration of the impact of person-centred counselling training on friendship
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThis qualitative research is an exploration of the impact of person centred training on our important friendships. The data was gathered from four practicing person-centred counsellors using semi-structured interviews and subsequently analysed using Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis. Findings from the data showed that our friendships are impacted both negatively but largely positively by our training. Emerging themes include notions such as outgrowth and the collision of worlds as we try to integrate our changes into our lives. A major theme was that we become enriched by our new ways of relating and seek this out from all our friendships and that our friendship landscape necessarily changes as we consciously engage with the core conditions. These findings support other work in this area.
