Recruiting Associate Psychologists & Psychotherapists




Hours: 5hrs p/w minimum

Site: Central Oxford

Rates: Starting at £70 per client hour (for Psychologists), increasing gradually dependent on experience and time of work


Who are we?


We are a small group of experienced independent professionals offering a range of psychological therapies for a variety of conditions (anxiety, depression, eating disorders, amongst others). Oxford Mind & Body has been established since 2016 and has built a reputation amongst colleagues for the provision of high quality and effective therapy.


We work holistically with our clients, who are over 16 years of age, to understand and address their emotional struggle. Our clients can self-refer or are referred by their health professionals. Therefore, we aim to liaise accordingly.


Clients who finished therapy with us reported a meaningful reduction in “distress” levels and improved “inner strength” at the end of our joint work.


We appreciate it takes courage to reach out and we are keen to offer assessments and therapy at the point of contact. We know from experience this improves engagement as well as prognosis. We are therefore looking for compassionate and competent Clinical/Counselling Psychologists and Psychotherapists to join the practice.


If you believe you are a suitable candidate please send a cover letter outlining briefly how you would complement the team, together with your CV, to


We look forward to hearing from you soon!
