Meet our team of staff who deliver our counselling, training and mindfulness services throughout Scotland.

Angie Cameron – Managing Director, Workplace Trainer, Psychotherapist and Mindful Teacher

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.

Alexia Gaitanou – Counsellor Edinburgh

I am a qualified counsellor and dance movement psychotherapist with over 14 years of experience working with children, young people and adults, in a variety of settings.

I believe that therapy is a space for sharing our stories and gaining a different perspective. This way we can alter old patterns and let go our ‘skeletons in the cupboard’.
I also believe in the power of creativity be it movement, story telling, images.  I invite my clients in a talking and creative way to explore of their worries.
I believe that only when we get to fully know our difficulties, they will become smaller.

Alongside my work as a psychotherapist, I work as a Clinical Supervisor and a Tutor for the Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling at the University of Edinburgh.

Linsay Gow – Counsellor Edinburgh

I am a person centred counsellor with a background in health and social care. Unlike a maze with only one path through, life has many possibilities and offers numerous paths. Sometimes we can feel stuck and I strongly believe that counselling can be enormously beneficial, restorative and empowering; aiding both awareness and understanding of our experiences.  I have worked alongside individuals experiencing a range of issues; including perinatal mental health, loss and bereavement, stress, anxiety, depression, relationships and trauma.  It is my belief that every individual has value; the potential and the internal resources they need to heal or foster growth. I offer a skilled, caring and facilitative presence within a therapeutic space to support you on this journey.

Hilary Rogers – Counsellor Edinburgh

I have been an accredited counsellor and psychotherapist for over twenty years.

I work in an integrative way with individuals and couples with a focus on Relationship and Sexual issues. I also have extensive experience helping clients with many other concerns including trauma, PTSD, bereavement, depression and identity issues.

I live by the sea and enjoy regular coastal walks and have a strong passion for Italian cinema.

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.

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.
