Hello, I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor enrolled on an Infant Observation course as part of my training to become a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with the British Psychotherapy Foundation in London. I am on a quest to find a pregnant woman with a view to visiting her at home with her baby once a week for two years. The idea is for me to observe, in an entirely neutral and non-judgemental way, the development of the first relationship in a baby's life. If you feel you may be interested in participating in my study I would be very grateful. I can provide an introductory letter from the BPF and I have a DBS Certificate. You may wonder what you may get out of being observed with your baby? Many mothers who have participated have found they derived much satisfaction from having a regular space to reflect and notice the astonishing changes in their baby over these early months. Many mothers have gained pleasure from knowing that they and their baby are contributing towards understanding more about infant development which in turn will lead to helping people in distress to be more fully understood through psychotherapy. If you would like to learn more I would be very glad to hear from you. We can speak on the phone or by email. Thank you for taking the time to read my request. Best wishes. Kally.
