About

Steph Smart

I am passionate about self-discovery, the journey of learning, creativity through play, and the relationship between wellbeing and the creative arts; All the things that make us human.

Fully accredited, qualified, and insured, I hold a Master’s in Arts, Festival and Events Management, a PGCert Teaching Qualification in Further Education, a Professional Development Award for Teaching in Scotland's Colleges, a BA (hons) in Acting and English, and eighteen years' experience in the arts. I have a full PVG license and hold accreditation from the Genral Teaching Council for Scotland. 

My work is grounded in a belief that all we ever need is one cheerleader. One person to see our potential, and believe in us until we can believe in ourselves. I aim to empower others to see what I see in them.
