This chapter presents an account of practice-generated research that produced a potential new model of clinical practice with mental imagery and also, as an unexpected by-product, an innovative method for enhancing researcher reflexivity. It also considers the thinking that informed the research design and discusses the challenges thrown up in its application. One of the distinct advantages bestowed by the Metanoia Doctoral programme is its emphasis on drawing on the knowledge, approaches and principles at the core of the discipline of psychotherapy and harnessing these for the purposes of developing professional knowledge. In order to convey a sense of the experience of this type of practitioner research, begin by explaining how the research question arose out of my clinical practice. The chapter examines both the rational analytic thinking that informed decisions made throughout the research and also the more subjective imaginable processes that were shaping the research and its findings.
