We are Fellows of the Grounded Theory Institute: we have studied the grounded theory method with Barney Glaser, and we are all expert in its use.

Thanks to Helen Scott for helping me to demystify the GT process and for introducing me to the work of Ernst von Glasersfeld.
A big thank you for such a great two days, it exceeded my expectations in terms of learning both practicalities and re focusing my research, I found it immensely reassuring to realise that I have chosen the best methodology for my study. You advise was so valuable …
I also extend my gratitude to Dr. Helen Scott of the Grounded Theory Online for her invaluable and relentless methodology mentorship at the data collection and initial data analysis stages of the project.
I want to thank Helen Scott and Tom Andrew for inspiring me and making my journey joyful.
As a result of my work with Helen I now feel I have a good understanding of grounded theory, have delivered a high-quality project and established a working relationship that is both enjoyable and highly productive.
Helen offered a great deal of technical support through the process of my research, but she also encouraged me during those times when I felt simply confused. So for the other students out there…go for CGT, and consider a mentor!
I am also indebted to Dr. Helen Scott. Her expertise in classic GT supported my belief that I could have a “jolly good [go]” at employing this methodology. She assisted me in learning fundamental components of classic GT and supported my efforts at conceptualization.
I have to say that the grounded theory conference in Manchester really, really was hugely useful to me…. It was a great source of support and the course colleagues I met and am still in touch with have formed a great bond of ‘Glaserites’ which has also been really supportive.
