A Thorough Examination with Drs Chris and Xand

Welcome to Alasdair Cant & Associates. We are delighted that Alasdair was part of Episode 3 of the highly sucessful BBC Sounds series A Thorough Examination with Drs Chris and Xand – addicted to food. You can listen to the series so far here

Alasdair does not currently offer one-to-one Motivational Interviewing conversations, nor can respond to individual situations, but we highly recommend our valued colleague and Associate, Glenn Hinds who can be contacted via email
