Linda Luckhurst

Lecturer in Psychology

Linda joined the Department from Canterbury in 2001 having bachelor degrees in both English Literature and Psychology and an MPhil on semantic category effects in object processing by temporal lobe epileptics and non-epileptics. She teaches courses in Introduction to Psychology, Social Psychology, Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy and Conceptual and Historical Issues in Psychology.

Research interests: Linda’s main research interests are in the fields of counselling psychology and psychotherapy, specifically the relationship between attachment and bereavement outcomes and how attachment might mediate the development of continuing bonds post-bereavement and the intersubjective nature of the therapeutic relationship. She also has an interest in the psychology of language, specifically discourse, authorship and readership. She is currently doing a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy by Professional Studies (DCPsych).
