The University of Edinburgh is a leading research university and an international centre of academic excellence, and therefore provides an excellent environment and outstanding resources for undertaking research.
It is Scotland's premier research University, and was graded within the top five British Universities in the 2008 National Research Assessment Exercise.
Counselling and Psychotherapy has a longstanding commitment to original empirical and theoretical research that engages critically with the practices of counselling and psychotherapy, and we are especially keen to encourage research concerned with the interface between counselling, psychotherapy and social, cultural and political life, and research that draws directly on practitioners’ own therapeutic work.
We specialise in qualitative, reflexive and critical research approaches and our research portfolio is highly interdisciplinary, integrating concepts, practices and scholarship from counselling and psychotherapy, psychology, sociology, philosophy, education, cultural studies, health and social care, and other social sciences.
