Managing difficult thoughts and feelings



I am Nicola Motton, an Honorary Psychology Assistant working with Dr Katherine Newman Taylor, Consultant Clinical Psychologist at The Royal South Hants Hospital, and Dr Lusia Stopa, Programme Director at the University of Southampton.


I am requesting your participation in a study regarding the way in which people manage difficult thoughts and feelings.  This will involve completing nine questionnaires which will take approximately an hour. Personal information will not be released to or viewed by anyone other than researchers involved in this project. Results of this study will not include your name or any other identifying characteristics.    



Your participation is voluntary and you may withdraw your participation at any time.  For students: if you choose not to participate there will be no consequences to your grade or to your treatment as a student in the psychology department. If you have any questions please contact me, Nicola Motton on
