About Tracy Hitchcock
I am a Senior Lecturer In the Psychological Therapies and Mental Health Team and course leader for the BSc Therapeutic Studies Honours Top Up Degree. I have been at the university since 2008 teaching on our portfolio of courses within the team.
My background and training is in integrative and psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy. I studied at The Minster Centre and The Institute of Psychotherapy and Social Studies in London. My areas of interest are Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder and Schizoid Disorders. In contrast I am also interested in meditation and the use of labyrinths in mindfulness training and well being.

I teach on the modules: Theories of Therapy; Group Therapies and Group Work; Issues and Debates and The Theory and Practice of Research. I also teach theory and skills practice on the Diploma and Certificate courses in Therapeutic Counselling. I facilitate supervision groups on the Diploma. My teaching on the Undergraduate Degree in Counselling and Mental Health has been on the modules in Counselling Skills and Human Growth and Development.
The use of labyrinths in mindfulness and as a tool for well-being.
