Is Googling your therapist useful?

Have you used the internet to find information about your therapist? Have you thought about this but not done so? Or has 'Googling' your therapist never crossed your mind?

This team of researchers would like to understand more about 'Therapist Googling', which involves intentionally or accidentally using any internet site (such as social media), to find information about your therapist.

If you are an adult who has had therapy with a Psychological Professional, they would like to hear about your experiences, regardless of whether or not you have ever 'Googled' your therapist. 


We are looking for:

Participants, who:

  • are aged 18+
  • are able to read and write English
  • have access to a device connected to the internet
  • have attended at least one session (an individual/family/group session) with a psychological professional (e.g counsellor, psychologist, psychiatrist, psychotherapist, psychological wellbeing practitioner (PWP), high intensity cognitive behavioural therapist (HIT), including trainees in any of these professions)


  • Online/home-based


No expenses are incurred as a result of participation. No incentives are offered so that participants can maintain complete anonymity.
