Maryann Cross MBACP (Reg)
I offer flexible hours, daytime and evening, in the Fleet Hampshire area.
I am a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist with many years' experience of working to support people with a wide range of difficulties. This has enabled me to be empathic and supportive, working with you to help you to explore your issues.
Choosing a counsellor can be difficult and you may feel unsure about what is involved in the counselling process. It can often be difficult to talk to family and friends and I can support you in exploring your difficulties and work with you to help to resolve them. I offer you a comfortable location that provides a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
My training is integrative, which means I can draw on various approaches which include Person-Centred, existential and cognitive behaviour therapy to meet your specific needs.
I am a registered member of BACP ( British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists ) and I adhere to their code of ethics.
I offer short term counselling, long term psychotherapy and time limited therapy to provide an approach that is right for you, regularly reviewing our work together.
I am experienced in helping you deal with issues including depression, anxiety, loss and bereavement, anger, relationship problems, stress , low self-esteem.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
First session £20.00.
My fee after the first session is £40.00
I feel it is important to find the right counsellor for you. The first session will be an initial assessment to establish your requirements and to explore what you would like to gain from counselling, as well as how we can work together to achieve this.
Please contact me if you have any questions or to make an appointment.
My consulting room is on Ancells Farm in Fleet Hampshire. This is walking distance from Fleet station and easy access from the M3 junction 4a.
