Metanoia Institute Research Centre
The Metanoia Institute Research Centre, leads a number of practice based research projects in counselling and psychotherapy research, evidence-based clinical practice and counselling and psychotherapy training. The centre’s mission is to coordinate evaluative research, that addresses both the philosophical issues and the pragmatic needs that emerge in counselling and psychotherapy practice and training, but also to contribute to counselling and psychotherapy research, across a wide range of therapy orientations. Research findings from successfully completed projects at the Research Centre, have already contributed to evidence-based practice in mental health care, as well as the wider field of counselling and psychotherapy research.
Research projects take place within the in-house Research Clinic and in collaboration with external practice settings, such as the NHS, reputable University research centres, and other academic and professional research initiatives.
