"Therapist factors' is a term often used to refer to the influence on clients' experience of therapy that is attributable to individual therapists. Using grounded theory, the influence of 'therapist factors' on clients ~ experience of therapy was investigated through 25 qualitative interviews, 'with 15 therapists and 10 clients. Participants were drawn from three therapy organisations based in London. A model was developed to help understand the development of 'therapist factors' and the complex processes by which therapists were thought to enhance or hinder clients' experience of therapy. The potential implications of these findings for future research and for the practice and training of counselling psychology are discussed.
