+ Claire Asherson Bartram
Claire Asherson Bartram

DPsych. Dip. Gestalt Therapy, UKCP reg
020 8361 6146 clairebartram@blueyonder.co.uk

Claire Asherson Bartram is a psychotherapist, supervisor and group leader working in private practice in Highgate. While her original psychotherapy training was in Gestalt she is a firm supporter of an integrated approach and teaches skills and Humanistic theory for the 1st year of the counselling diploma.

Claire’s research interests are in human relationships and research methods that challenge the traditional hierarchy of researcher and subject. Her doctoral project ‘Narratives of Mothers in Stepfamily Situations’ combined a creative approach with the demands of academic rigour. For this project she included personal material alongside that of other participants in an eclectic methodology that drew from narrative, phenomenological and heuristic methodologies. In the process of this she gained knowledge and experience of many qualitative methods, including grounded theory, action research and cooperative enquiry.

Claire sees conducting a research project as both a means of gaining knowledge and a developmental heuristic journey for the researcher. As a supervisor she attends to the interplay between the person of the researcher, the research area and the data arising from the investigation. She will help supervisees to identify a pertinent and manageable research area and their personal connection with it, to be aware of their biases and strengths within the work and to write up in a clear and accessible manner.
