"She's Not Going to Leave Me"--Counsellors' Feelings on Ending Therapy with Children
Bamford, Judi; Akhurst, Jacqueline
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v42 n5 p459-471 2014
This study sought to explore the impact of ending therapy on counsellors working with children in schools. Five counsellors were interviewed and their responses were analysed using interpretative phenomenological analysis. Four master themes emerged, one of which, empathic identification, is the focus of this paper. The findings of this study suggest that the counsellor's experience of ending therapy can evoke long-term powerful emotions.
