Luke studied his undergraduate degree in psychology and philosophy.
With an interest in mental health and developmental psychology he then continued to develop this by undertaking a Masters in counselling children and young people, learning an integrative approach for working therapeutically with young people, covering CBT, systemic, Gestalt and creative approaches.
His research has focused on genders and sexualities in young people and youth.
Luke has been volunteering at a local charity offering counselling support for a range of needs for the 3 years and has attended specialised training in areas of trans awareness, eating disorders, self-harm and autism.
Since completing his Masters, Luke is now lecturing at the University of Northampton (in psychology) and researching non-binary gender identities in young people, for his PhD.
Luke has been volunteering as a youth leader with an LGBTQ+ youth group, for under 18s, in Northampton for the last year, providing a safe and supportive space for young people with various genders and sexualities.
