Hilary Norman

Institution: Psychology Department, Middlesex University, England.

Supervisory team: Dr Lisa Marzano, Dr Andrea Oskis, Dr Mark Coulson.

Position: PhD Student

Current research: I am looking into the relationship between self-harm and alexithymia (difficulties in identifying and describing feelings) in young adults.

Research interests:

  • Self-harm and emotional experience.
  • The relationship between emotional awareness and interoceptive awareness (i.e. awareness of bodily sensations)
  • Mindfulness as a protective factor.
  • Learning new methods – including meta-analysis, structural equation modelling and IPA

Recent Publications:

  • Norman, H., Marzano, L., Coulson, M., & Oskis, A. (2019). Effects of mindfulness-based interventions on alexithymia: a systematic review.  Evidence-Based Mental Health 22, 36-43.
  • Norman, H.,& Borrill, J. (2015). The relationship between self-harm and alexithymia. Scandinavian Journal of Psychology, 56(4), 405–419.

Can help with: I’m no expert but I would be very happy to share experience of meta-analysis and also of SEM in MPlus.  In a previous life I was a civil servant so I might have some government knowledge that would be useful.

What’s essential to your well-being? Coffee, singing, fellow students with whom to share the highs and lows.
