Judith dot Moore at uea dot ac dot uk
Dr Moore trained as a counsellor in the mid-1980s and has worked at the UEA Counselling Service since 1985, becoming Director in 1998. During the 1990s she taught on the UEA Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and in more recent years on the Diploma in Focusing and Experiential Psychotherapy (currently replaced by the Certificate in Focusing). At present she supervises PhD students in counselling and inputs on the research methods module of the MA in Counselling and the Certificate in Focusing.
She is a BACP Senior Accredited Practitioner and a Certifying Coordinator of the Focusing Institute, New York.
Dr Moore was Chair of the Organising Committee for PCE2008, the 8th World Conference of the World Association for Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy and Counselling which took place at UEA from July 6-10 2008. She was also a co-organiser of a conference on the Philosophy of Therapy, which will took place at UEA from July 8-11 2011.
I have trained and worked in the person-centred approach for twenty-five years and am deeply committed to its development at UEA. As a practitioner, I know at first hand that person-centred and experiential psychotherapies work and, as an academic and a teacher, I am always striving to deepen my understanding of therapeutic processes. In recent years focusing training- and particularly training in wholebody focusing- has enabled me to develop my appreciation of mindfulness and presence in the therapeutic relationship. At UEA, with the close relationship that exists between the University Counselling Service and the Centre for Counselling Studies, we have an ideal opportunity to develop practice-based research to further understanding of how and why counselling works for some clients and not for others and to feed this understanding back into our teaching programmes as well as into our work with clients.
2009-12: Ongoing research at the University Counselling Service based on CORE (Clinical Outcome Routine Evaluation), other qualitative and quantitative measures and the recording of client sessions. The current phase of this research is being funded by a UEA Teaching Fellowship, held with Kathleen Lane. Findings have so far been disseminated internally through the Counselling Service Student Annual Report and externally at the BACP Research Conference (Edinburgh, May 2012) and at the Conference for the World Association of Person-Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy and Counselling (Antwerp, July 2012).
Judy Moore’s own research project aims to examine issues around client motivation and ‘readiness’ for counselling and the resonance of client / counsellor experiential response.
Dr. Judy Moore currently supervises a number of doctoral students, whose topics include: the impact of Person-Centred Counselling in Syria; a qualitative exploration of a sense of the sense of ‘belonging’; Person-Centred Expressive Therapy in Japan; an investigation through their own narrative of the experience of trainees as they progress through counsellor training; self and ‘no-self’ in the counselling relationship.
