This doctoral portfolio consists of three pieces of work written at different stages of my training to become a counselling psychologist. There are two distinct but overlapping themes within the portfolio; the experiences of psychologists during therapy and therapeutic work with people who have a forensic history. These pieces of work reflect my evolving identity as a counselling psychologist practitioner and researcher and my longer-standing interest in working with people who commit crime. Part B of this portfolio is an original piece of qualitative research investigating the experiences of therapists working with prisoners, Part C is a critical review of the literature pertaining to counselling psychologists’ experiences of burnout and the portfolio concludes with Part D, a combined client study and process report detailing my therapeutic work with a client who had a criminal history.
