In seeking to gain a greater understanding around group therapy for Anorexia Nervosa (anorexia), this study explored what psychologists perceive to be useful and not so useful about working in this complex setting. Qualitative research studies, with a focus on process, are limited in this field. Existing literature predominates its exploration of clients’ experiences, and neglects to consider the perspective of the therapist. This research study aimed to address this gap in the literature. Interviews with eight participants were conducted and transcribed verbatim. They were then subject to analysis, using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) approaches. Researcher reflexivity was carried out throughout the various phases of the research, and are highlighted in the text.
