Peer Support Research Project

In 2018 Think Thrive! have teamed up with the Imagine Community, Dumfries to develop a research project. Throughout the Summer we conducted interviews of Peer Workers and the people they support and developed a qualitative analysis of the data.

In October 2018 we presented the findings to the General Adult Faculty of the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Annual Conference. We goal was to make the case for the legitimacy of the Peer Support approach to the College. 

Well it seems the Consultants liked the project and have invited us back for their 2019 Conference. We mean to conduct further research on Peer Working, again as a qualitative analysis and focused on authenticity and vulnerability as the foundation of cognitive growth and change in the relationship.


Any donation will receive a copy of the Research Paper to read and feedback on.

I have completed the research, written the Paper and on Fiday 12th October presented my findings to senior Consultants at the Royal College of Psychiatrists. The Paper was well received and we have inquiries about the research.
If you are interested in reading the Paper: the Healing Power of Mutuality - Neural Synchrony in Peer Support, email me from our Contacts page at
I need your help to recoup some of the costs of the research, we are still below the target budget for the work. PLEASE HELP WITH A DONATION! THANK YOU!
