A spirited identity

Jim McCourt interviews Adrian Coyle.
Adrian Coyle is prolific. A senior lecturer at the University of Surrey with a PhD in social psychology, and joint director there of the practitioner doctorate in psychotherapy and counselling psychology, he is also Honorary Secretary of the Lesbian and Gay Psychology Section of the BPS, and has played a pivotal role in its development. As he says: ‘I am quite happy to have a fragmented and flexible professional profile! I still see myself primarily as a social psychologist, but one who takes ideas and theories from social psychology and applies them in lesbian psychology, counselling psychology and whatever other domain my interests might take me into.’ With a wide range of areas up for discussion, we forged ahead.
