Art Psychotherapy

Welcome to the Art Psychotherapy section of the Practice-based Learning support website.

MSc Art Psychotherapy (International)

Every student completing the MSc Art Psychotherapy (International) at Queen Margaret University undertakes 110 practice education days during their training period. We link with services in the third sector and independent sectors and in the NHS to provide a range of practice placements for student. 

Placements happen in a variety of settings: schools, hospitals, prisons, counselling services, day care services and more. Students work with people across the lifespan - with preschool children and older adults. In these settings, professionals from a range of backgrounds provide support and supervision for Art Psychotherapy students.

This web resource is here to support all involved in the process of supporting our students on practice placement.

At Queen Margaret University there is a team of qualified Art Psychotherapists who work closely with students, supervising and assessing placements from the Art Psychotherapy perspective. We are always keen to connect with the people who are currently, and potentially, involved in these placements.

The team for Art Psychotherapy practice placements comprises:

Professional Practice Tutor: Adrienne McDermid-Thomas
Placement Administrator: Merryn Forshaw
Pre-Placement Support Officer: Xanthe Duncan

Personal Academic Tutors:

Jane Burns

Sheena McGregor

Sarah Haywood

Programme Leader: Adrienne McDermid-Thomas
