Art Therapist:

I am a qualified Art Therapist (MSc) with current membership of the British Association of Art Therapists and the Health Professions Council and with a great deal of experience in working with a range of client groups. My training was at Queens Margaret University . I have worked for the Place2Be with children as a counsellor, 2 days per week, in both St Francis and Canal View Primary Schools in Edinburgh, for one year; for a previous year I worked as an Art Therapist at the Cowgate Centre for the homeless.



I have a large experience (over 5 years) in teaching most subjects in Computing, Digital Art, General IT, Microsoft Windows and Office, Web Design, Computer Graphics and Art in several community colleges and family learning organisations. For two years I have worked alongside literacy tutors bringing ICT in adult literacy learning.


Workshop Facilitator

I run workshops all over the Edinburgh area.  My aim in my workshops is to inspire people to explore their creativity and create artwork of their own. I run workshops for both adults and children, in libraries, schools and community centres. I also run scheduled classes in the local area.



In a previous position at Winona E-Solutions I supervised a production team. I found it natural to motivate my team to deliver professionally and on time. Clearly management skills are also necessary in the different context of class teaching, and my extensive experience of this has given me a great deal of experience at motivating and managing people.
