Teapot Trust Art Therapy Projects Manager Cat Thomson

Cat joined the Teapot Trust team in December 2022 as Art Therapy Projects Manager. Cat was drawn to the role having seen friends and family benefit from art therapy.

Cat has 18 years’ experience working in the voluntary sector to support the wellbeing and education of children with additional support needs. Cat previously worked in Children in Scotland where she held a variety of roles, including Communications and Engagement Manager of Enquire (the Scottish advice service for additional support for learning). Cat brings with her a wealth of people and project management experience. One of Cat’s strengths is her ability to nurture relationships with key partners, having led a national stakeholder engagement programme with education staff and family support services.

Cat previously worked as a Performance Review Manager at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and as an Information Analyst with the NHS information service ISD Scotland.

Outside of work, Cat is a keen cyclist and swimmer and, following a 20-year hiatus, started life drawing again. You'll find her at her happiest on a blustery beach with her family, friends and borrowed dog Lily.
