Phoebe Hutchison is a skilled and experienced Consultant Counsellor with a track record of delivering high-quality services for individuals in extreme life crisis. Phoebe’s first book, Honeymooners Forever, Twelve Step Marriage Survival Guide showed her passion for helping client’s with their relationships. After a painful loss of a guitarist/friend, in the 90’s, to suicide, Phoebe spent decades trying to understand depression. Firstly hiring only employees with depression, and helping them move through it, Phoebe then wrote her second book, Are You Listening? Life is Talking to You, as an eclectic and thorough guide for anyone not coping. As a tool for her counselling, Phoebe then utilized this book to help many, many clients move through depression (many with suicidal ideation) to a more fulfilling life. Phoebe later became intrigued by trauma, and then later, addiction, studying the work of many masters in the field, such as Peter Levine, Bessel van der Kolk , Daniel Amen, David Grand, Patrick Carnes, Gabor Mate, Roby Abeles, and gained a thorough understanding of the bigger picture in addiction. The Passionate Life Program (PLP) first works with the client, in thorough assessment, then helps them heal in the areas of: anxiety, depression, grief, relationships, and more, and then the program addresses (in a new 12 step model) the addiction component.
Phoebe is excited in this role in PLP Solutions, as a co-manager of a multi-disciplinary team as her ultimate goal in life is being achieved: To reduce worldwide depression.
