This chapter discusses on innovative postgraduate study and ways to disseminate the results of a doctorate in psychotherapy, including working jointly with one or more candidates, and creative methods of cascading research results to stakeholders, including other professionals in the field. For many practitioners, the traditional type of academic PhD thesis seems to miss something crucial of the lived experience of working in the counselling profession. The Metanoia/Middlesex University Doctorate in Psychotherapy grew out of the awareness that practitioner research required the ability to join with colleagues to think creatively and develop new ways of researching and presenting findings. By establishing a culture of dynamism, collaboration and creativity, practitioner-research based programmes have become attractive to well-qualified mature practitioners, including many from widening participation groups and both home and international students who may experience the traditional 'ivory tower' as locking them out or creating a prison within doctoral-level study.
