Both research and psychotherapy involve profound and sustained inquiry and offer the possibility of increased personal knowledge and development. The chapter discusses on the motivation for the inquiry and its methodology, and describes difficulties encountered and how these affects personally and professionally. It also discusses the inquiry's outcomes and products. The training includes humanistic, mindfulness-based, psychodynamic and somatic trauma therapies, and is influenced by Gestalt and Jungian ideas. Indeed, reflection, both during and after sessions, was the main methodological tool, both for practice and for this research. By focussing on phenomenological experience as a therapist, it hoped to gain practical knowledge and help reduce the 'research-practice gap'. The concept of 'tacit knowing' the idea that one often knows more than consciously aware of, underlies heuristic research. The principle of fidelity requires that practitioners honour the trust placed in them; individual clients are, therefore, not identified.
