Help us improve our website

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) are currently working to improve our website, especially our Find A Therapist tool.

In order to do this we’re conducting research interviews with members of the public to understand how people might use our website if they were looking for a therapist.

What we are looking for

No experience or knowledge of mental health or psychotherapy is needed. We want to speak to people who may never have had therapy before or know anything about it. This will help us build a better tool that works for everybody if they need it.

What we need from you

Interviews will last between 45 minutes and 1 hour and will ideally take place at UKCP’s office in London during the day on Monday 16 March 2020.

If this is not possible for you we can also arrange to speak with you over the phone on this date or on another date during office hours.

The interview will be carried out by a professional user researcher and observed by a member of UKCP’s communications team.

What we can offer

To say thank you for your help we would like to offer all participants a £50 book token gift card which can be used online or in store at Waterstones, Foyles, WH Smiths and more.

The insights you share with us will make a big difference to our project and help us connect more people to the support they need, when they need it.

Get in touch

To take part please contact Sarah Jackson by emailing before 5pm on Wednesday 11 March 2020.

Please include the following information:

  • Your full name
  • A phone number
  • Your age
  • Whether you are able to come into our London office on Monday 16 March or would like to arrange a telephone interview
  • Whether you have personal experience of therapy (no details required, just Y/N)

How we will look after your information

A full information sheet and consent form will be provided for you to read and sign in advance of the interview and any personal data you provide will be handled in line with our privacy policy.

Your comments will be shared with key user research agency staff and UKCP office staff in anonymised form and will not be shared publicly.
