Who are we?

Our small group of experienced independent professionals offer a range of psychological therapies for a variety of conditions. These include anxiety, depression and eating disorders, amongst others. Oxford Mind & Body was established in 2016 and subsequently built a reputation amongst colleagues for the provision of high quality and effective therapy.

In addition, we work holistically with our clients, who are over 16 years of age. Consequently, this helps us understand and address their emotional struggle. Our clients can self-refer. In addition some are referred by their health professionals. Therefore, we aim to liaise accordingly.

In conclusion, clients who finish therapy with us report a meaningful reduction in “distress” levels. As a result they notice improved “inner strength” at the end of our joint work.

We appreciate it takes courage to reach out. Therefore we are keen to offer assessments and therapy at the point of contact. Our experience teaches us that it improves engagement as well as prognosis. We therefore look for kind and competent professionals to join the practice.
