Abstract:

Rationale: To date, relatively little research has explored alternative practices to those of the mainstream professional bodies within the field of counselling and psychotherapy. Aim: To explore the rewards and challenges of being an Independent Practitioners Network (IPN) participant. Method: Seven semi-structured interviews and five questionnaires from a self-selecting sample were subject to thematic analysis, alongside the researcher's participatory observations. Findings: IPN is a vehicle for multiple areas of support for a diverse group of practitioners, who encounter challenges from its structure, a high turnover rate and external forces. Discussion: Despite the limitations of selection bias, the findings provide a rich insight into an alternative model of practice. Conclusion: The IPN and the issues raised in this study have implications for all practitioners. Areas for further research are discussed.
