This portfolio is divided into three sections; the Academic Dossier, the Therapeutic Practice Dossier and the Research Dossier. Contained herein are papers I have written during my three years of doctoral training, capturing aspects of my personal and professional development during the course. The Academic Dossier comprises of three selected essays. The first paper presents a critique of a chosen text, unpacking the author's account of Roger's condition 'congruence' in therapy. The second essay draws on psychoanalytic theory and practice. This piece of work outlines how one might work psychoanalytically with an individual presenting with Anorexia Nervosa, using hypothetical case examples. The third essay explores the Systemic Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic framework, as applied to working with children and adolescents, drawing on personal clinical experience. The Therapeutic Practice Dossier places focus upon my personal clinical experience spanning the three years of training. Outlined here is an account of my three clinical placements, and my Final Clinical Paper. This paper provides a personal reflection on my experience as a developing Counselling Psychologist, bringing together how theory, research and clinical practice have shaped this learning process. Finally, the Research Dossier contains a literature review and two qualitative research reports investigating the father-daughter relationship and anorexia nervosa. Primarily, the literature review explores various theoretical modalities and existing literature, to provide a coherent . rationale for the importance of research study on this topic. Following this, the first research report is an Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis that explores the nature of the father . daughter relationship and Anorexia Nervosa, from the recovered daughter's perspective. Finally, the second research project places focus on the investigation of the father-daughter relationship and Anorexia Nervosa from the father's perspective, using a Grounded Theory methodology.
