My CPD Centre - Aroma Here & There provides continuing professional development workshops for qualified therapists. I aim to offer informative and thought provoking material, with the latest research, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I was a registered IFPA (International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists) Aromatherapy Tutor, Principal Tutor and External Examiner between 2006 and 2019, and I also worked with the Edinburgh School of Holistic Aromatherapy (IFPA accredited training school), between 2006 to 2009, and have the City & Guilds Teaching Certificate.

I have experience of working in a hospital /nursing home with patients and providing on site services for nurses and other members of the support team, and have enhanced disclosure through "Disclosure Scotland". Also hold a Scotland's Mental Health First Aid Certificate and ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) First Aid Certificate.
