Maxine Cranstoun Dip Hic. MBACP.
I am a fully qualified and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide professional and confidential counselling in a safe and supportive environment.
I am experienced in a broad range of issues (see below) and can offer either short term (up to 6 weeks) or longer term support.
I offer an initial 50 minute consultation session, which is free of charge and without obligation. During this session I will answer any questions or concerns, gain an understanding of your situation, and together we will look at how counselling could help you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Professional Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling, which means I am able to draw from a range of approaches to suit the individual needs of each client.
I have additional specialist training in addiction and addictive behaviour.
As a member of BACP, I adhere to the highest ethical standards.
As well as running my own private practice, I also work within the NHS and voluntary sectors.
