    I'm sorry no-one got back to you about this on time. Did you manage to choose to a topic to do your dissertation on in the end?

    So the first place to start will be asking yourself questions such as the area of psychology you're most interested in? Have you done essays/reports on anything and thought 'actually I'd like to find out more about that?' Do you prefer working with quantitative or qualititative data?

    Quantitative is the area I prefer and mental health and counselling is what I like

    That's what I'd approach your dissertation tutor with Do some independent research into qualititative based mental health studies...maybe involving students as it'll be much easier to get your ethics approved if you use a student population.

    I looked at articles, I have body image in males as a back up but I’m just not that interested In it. I have a meeting with them next week, so I need to have a research study together
