Project consultancy   


Tailored project planning and support to help you meet your research objectives


We support all stages of research and analysis and tailor our services to your needs. We advise on research design, analytic planning in the context of software use, the efficient set-up of software projects and on-going analytic support.  

We all know that the best research projects are those that have been planned well from the outset. Our services are often included in grant applications - involving us from the outset ensures provision of the input you require at the time you need it - allowing you to focus on your work, knowing there is constant support and open communication throughout.

If you have already collected data, we can advise on ways to handle that data, and investigate analysis strategies with you. We then can train you on a CAQDAS package that best suits your project’s needs, or, if you wish, QDAS is equipped to carry out the analysis in conjunction with you or your team (see data analysis page). Involve us for our subject area expertise, as additional help to speed up your analysis process, and/or to increase analysis reliability. 


Involving QDAS at every stage of your research project allows you to focus on your work, knowing there is constant support and open communication throughout your project process. From the very beginning of your project through the presentation of results, we provide advice, guidance, training, and expertise to ensure your project is successful from start to finish. We are happy to work with you either face-to-face or remotely.

Project consultation often supplements software training, but you do not have to have attended one of our workshops to make use of our consulting services. Support may be ‘one-off’, or continue on a regular or ‘as required’ basis. It is entirely based on what support is helpful to your project or team. 

Project write-up

Once the analysis is complete, we are happy to review your write-up for accuracy and clarity. If you have asked us to be involved in the analysis directly, we can prepare and present a final report for your use, based on the analysis we have conducted. Involve us in your project’s conclusion to ensure a clear and powerful presentation of your results.


We have used Christina and her colleagues to facilitate workshops on the use of NVivo with UWE researchers for over 10 years. We keep coming back because it is abundantly clear that she has extensive experience as a qualitative researcher and as a tutor in the use of software packages which our participants consistently report on as being incredibly useful. I have no qualms in recommending Christina to other researcher developers.
