Biography

Linda Corlett was an Educational Psychologist in Scotland for nearly forty years in West Lothian then Edinburgh working for the local authority with schools, young people and their families. In 2006 she became a part-time Lecturer for the professional training programme for educational psychologists at the University of Dundee. She retired from professional practice as an educational psychologist in Edinburgh in December 2015 to become a permanent member of staff at Dundee University contributing to the MSc in Educational Psychology and to supervision of doctoral students within the School of Education and Social Work.  Working in a special school in Sunderland and taking young people away at weekends to climb rocks and hills in Northumberland brought early career first-hand experience of selective mutism, victims of family strife and youngsters who are marginalised. Training in video interactive guidance brought direct opportunities to work with young people and families in Scotland and she has worked with pupils with additional support needs in ASD and ADHD. Her interests are in peer support, supervision, reflective practice and consulting with young people. She continues to be a keen mountaineer, climber, skier and sea kayaker and has two children who work in creative arts and music.
