Angie Cameron – Managing Director

I am an accredited psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience. I set up direction in 2001 to provide counselling and training for people looking to develop in their personal and professional life and our company ethos of maintaining warmth and professionalism at all times is key.

I’ve always had a strong interest in meditation and formally trained in 2011 as a mindfulness and compassion practitioner with the Mindfulness Association. I love to share my experience of mindfulness and the benefits it can bring with others.

When I’m not working you’ll usually find me on the tennis court or in my second home, the sea! I love open water swimming, I find it incredibly calming and it brings me so much joy, I think I may have been a mermaid in a former life.

Hazel Bell – Operations Administrator

My role is to support Angie and everyone at direction, acting as a central point of communication for clients, organisations and staff.  Although I’m not from a psychotherapy background, knowing that I can play a part in someone’s personal growth and development journey gives me a great deal of satisfaction.

I’ve recently discovered the benefits of mindful practice and love to share my new found knowledge, encouraging others to give it a try.

Debbie Tinkler – Counsellor Fife

I have been involved in counselling for over twenty years, having set up and run a third sector counselling service in Perthshire for a number of years before moving to the coast. I’m passionate about helping people reach their potential and embracing who they want to be.

I love walking so spend as much time outdoors as possible and really enjoy doing all things creative.

Sarah Carlile – Counsellor Edinburgh

I am a qualified counsellor who draws on Person-Centred and Psychodynamic approaches in my practice. I have provided counselling in a wide variety of settings including community based projects, educational settings and employee assistance programmes. I have extensive experience working as a person-centred, recovery-focused mental health and crisis practitioner and find that it provides me with a rich resource to draw on as a counsellor.

I also practice mindfulness regularly and have an interest in how self-compassion can help to open ourselves up to a new richness in life.

 

Elaine Hervey – Counsellor Glasgow

I am a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist and having been working with people in a therapeutic capacity for fifteen years. I use my post-graduate training in psychodynamic and solution focused brief therapy to assist me in identifying what work works in relation to specific client needs.

I have worked with young people and adults in a variety of voluntary, private sector and organisational settings. My experience of working both here in Scotland and in Asia help me to work with people – understanding their values and culture, and building a strong therapeutic relationship.

I hold a strong appreciation for the uniqueness of the individual, of respect, acceptance and non-judgement.
