Abstract: Formal training in counselling and psychotherapy provides a gateway to practice. Undertaking work with clients without it would be regarded by most therapists as unthinkable. Yet, little research evidence exists to support the view that training has any impact on therapeutic skill. With the help of a BACP Seed Corn grant, I have spent the past five years engaged in research which has attempted to begin to bridge this gap between practice and evidence. In this article I will provide an overview of what I have found out about trainees’ experiences of training and the impact it may have on the development of therapeutic skill.
