Following guidance for social distancing we are now only offering therapy sessions via the telephone or web conferencing e.g. Zoom or VSee. You will still receive therapy from a trained therapist and have the time and space to discuss anything you would have done in a face-to-face session. All you will need is a computer and internet connection, or a telephone. We will continue to offer this service for as long as we need to and then move the sessions to our therapy rooms when we can. Please make an enquiry in the usual way via our ‘Contact Us’ page and we will be in contact.

Speaking to a trained counsellor can help us become clearer about particular issues, emotions or behaviour. Through talking, you will be able to find answers and awareness and discover ways to manage feelings and behaviour.

Seeing a counsellor does not mean you have not coped so far, it simply signifies that your difficulties are complicated. It can be a great relief to be able to talk freely in a confidential environment and take control of the situation.

Typically, people have counselling on a weekly basis, though this is negotiated with the counsellor. Counsellors may use different tools and techniques to suit your personal circumstances, in order to help you explore whatever is worrying you. Counsellors can be trained in a variety of modalities. The therapy is always about what is best for you.

The Counsellors at Oxford Counselling Centre receive regular supervision and continuing professional development to ensure the highest standards of practice. We can offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Integrative Counselling, Analytical and Person Centred Counselling. The counsellor will talk to you about what suits your needs best.

Each counselling session costs £40 and lasts 50 minutes.
