Hi, I'm writing a paper on top UK psychologists and their effect on
social culture.  One of my favourites is Dr. Linda Papadopoulos.  I'd
like to know what type of doctorate she has (Ph.D, D.Clin.Psy, etc) and

Hi ananic1,

The following is the result of my research on Dr. Linda Papadopoulos.

From Dr. Linda's website: 
"In addition to her roles as media psychologist, author, magazine
columnist and corporate consultant, Dr. Linda is also considered
amongst her peers to be one of the foremost counseling psychologists
in the UK.  She earned her B.A. (with honors) in psychology from York
University in Toronto, Canada, an MSc in health psychology from the
University of Surrey and a Ph.D. in psychology from City University in
London.  She is a chartered counseling and health psychologist who has
worked in various treatment settings both privately with her own
practice and publicly with England?s healthcare system, the National
Health Service.  During nine years as a chartered psychologist, Dr.
Linda has gained extensive experience in the counseling of
individuals, couples and families. In fact, many celebrities in the US
and the UK also turn to Dr. Linda when they are in need of counseling.

An accomplished academic psychologist, Dr. Linda is published widely
in peer-reviewed academic journals on counseling and medical
psychology, and she is often invited to give specialist lectures at
universities and medical schools in England and throughout the world. 
Founder and director of the successful Programme in Counselling
Psychology at the London Metropolitan University, Dr. Linda was
appointed Reader in psychology in 2001 - a great distinction for such
a young age.  She has also been honored with a nomination for the
Annual Counseling Psychology Award by the British Psychological

"This week the Chatshow sofa was swapped for a therapy couch as we
were joined by Celebrity Psychologist Linda Papadopoulos. Now many
people think TV Psychologists aren?t really qualified and simply make
up fluff, but not our Linda! She is a genuine Chartered Counseling and
Health Psychologist (with a PHD don?t you know!) and also holds one of
the most prolific publication records in her field!

First made famous for commenting on the Big Brother contestants, we
turned the tables to delve into her mind and find out exactly what she
thinks about today?s BB hopefuls, which celebrities really need to be
on the therapy couch and where she would choose to have plastic
surgery and why!"
