Dr Linda Dubrow-Marshall

Lecturer in Applied Psychology (Therapies)


I am a clinical and counseling psychologist (HCPC Registered) and a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I am a lecturer in Applied Psychology (Therapies), and I teach at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Previously, I designed and managed the new Counselling and Wellbeing Service at the University of Salford, and I taught for the MSc in Counselling (Professional Training). I am an integrative psychotherapist, and I incorporate hypnotherapy and EMDR into my practice. I have extensive clinical and counseling experience in a variety of settings, including universities, prisons, addiction agencies, psychiatric hospitals, veteran agencies, and private practice. I obtained my PhD in Counselling Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, USA, and did my PhD dissertation on “Marital relationships of children of Holocaust survivors”. I am currently studying for the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice.


I teach in the MSc Applied Psychology (Therapies) programme, including Introduction to Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy and Physical Health, Addictions, and Psychological Therapies for Common Mental Health Disorders. I also teach undergraduate psychology modules, including The Psychology of Mental Health, Developmental Psychology, Introduction to Research Methods, and Further Research Methods. I supervise both undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations.

Research Interests

My current research interests include: Psychology of undue influence and coercive persuasion (e.g. cults and extremist groups), group dynamics and family systems, ethical psychotherapy, psychotherapy outcome, practitioner self-care, CBT and physical health, and single session psychotherapy. I gave a presentation on single session psychotherapy for the psychology seminar series. I am a peer reviewer for the Counselling and Psychotherapy Research Journal, published by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and Routledge, and a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Cultic Studies.
