Fiona Hutchison BA (Hons) Psych & Phil.
Master Practitioner in NLP.
I started my career as a language and business communication trainer; living in Europe for ten years where I worked with organisations such as IBM in Spain and the Dresdner Bank in Germany. I loved helping clients achieve their goals while I was also living out my own youthful dreams.
When I returned to Scotland in 1994 I married and became a partner in our family farming business. My first passion, however, still lay in helping others overcome their difficulties and find their way forward so I trained and worked as a relationship counsellor for five years.
For the next 15 years I worked firstly as a counsellor and then as a senior counsellor at the Employee Counselling Service; who started in the shipyards of Glasgow in 1976 and went on to become one of the largest EAP providers in Scotland. I achieved BACP accreditation and also trained as a coach and as a supervisor in this time. Sadly the Employee Counselling Service ceased trading in 2015 and my colleague June Rattray and I decided to form our own business; to continue with the work that we are passionate about doing. That was the beginning of Counselling and Coaching Solutions.
