I am experienced with ten years of teaching English as a Second Language, and Arts and the History of Art with children and teenagers from 3 to 18 years. I like to incorporate art, literature, comics and film in my teaching. The past couple of years I have gained more experience as a mental health counsellor, working on a one-to-one basis, but also in groups with children with attachment and learning difficulties.

I have a Post Graduate diploma in Person-centred care in Health and Art from Queen Margaret University in Scotland and I participated in modules as Safeguarding and Developmental and Relational Perspectives. Alongside the training, I have had hands-on working experience with children in primary schools in Edinburgh through the third sector organisation ‘People Know How’ so I am familiar with the UK’s education policies.

Last but not least, as I completed my Master’s in Art Psychotherapy, I am particularly interested through play with children to activate the imagination, express themselves using art, and observe and learn from visual narratives and storytelling. I believe I possess a high team spirit and have the capacity of maintaining cultural sensitivity and rapport with members of diverse groups; I am a self-starter, particularly skilled in prioritising multiple tasks effectively while retaining perfect composure under pressure. Flexible, communicative and analytically predisposed with a keen eye for detail; creative and adept at processing information to achieve goals.

Working with children can be quite demanding but the creativity and imagination needed, are my tools.  What really inspires me is that there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child’s progress and how they can grow up to be responsible  people.
