Georgia has 9 years of experience working with children young people and adults in a variety of mental health and educational settings. Her degree in psychology and masters in child development have enhanced my naturally empathetic and reflective working style and informed her evidence-based approach.
Georgia has delivered workshops for organisations such as Eko Magazine, Community Focus Inclusive Arts, the Red Cross, The National Galleries of Scotland and Edinburgh Printmakers, as well as in independent primary schools.
Georgia's technical skills mean she is able to work with students' artwork to create complex and sophisticated images, which reflect their ideas and creativity.
She has worked on community projects and carried out research surrounding the use of picture-book making as a well-being tool. She believes that stories can be powerful way of processing complex emotions and so that young people understands themselves and circumstances more fully, which in turn has an impact on self esteem.
