Psychodynamic Therapy - (exploring issues with the help of linking the past to the present in the hope of getting a better understanding of how that shapes a person's way of behaving and overall being).
CBT Mindfulness - (often used in conjunction with other approaches to help one cope and this could be breathing exercises etc)
Person centred - ( using a more gentler approach whicy is non directive and highly recommend for those who maybe very sensitive and needing to take their time).

Having reaching rock bottom and fearing that I would lose my job, I had to confront my traumatic childhood issues and after a few consultations; WellBing turned out to be the right place for me. It was the whole package. Living with OCD from a very young age means I am very particular about cleanliness and the room was spacious and clean which was a positive. During the seven months of twice a week therapy, there was consistency and being an anxious person, I was offered either a hot drink or cold and found that always helped to calm my nerves and led me to open up about things I had repressed. I felt supported throughout and there were challenging times yet having been on that journey, I have no regrets and have so much respect for professionals who give a lot of themselves just to try and make lives of people like myself more manageable. I'm in a much better place and enjoying life more with my new found awareness and ways to manage the dark days which are far in between now.
I first contacted Wellbeing Oxford when I felt as though I couldn't cope with day to day life andfelt that talking therapy might be an option for me. I also didn't want to be stuck on a waiting list
for weeks or months as I felt this would on worsen my situation. The response from Wellbeing
Oxford was prompt and informative. When I mentioned that the fees could be an issue for me,
Memory, my therapist, emailed me promptly reassuring that they didn't like turning people away
if they really needed help. This was a really considerate act, and I immediately felt cared for, so I
decided to arrange a session with Memory.
Memory, is an extremely kind, welcoming and intelligent person, and I immediately liked her.
She outlined clearly what the sessions would entail, and how it worked. I always felt at ease
when talking to Memory and didn't ever feel judged or embarrassed when I was opening up
about personal and delicate topics. She is an excellent listener and has a lot of knowledge and experience that was really beneficial to the therapy, sometimes we would end up laughing which helped too! Over the course of 10 weeks, I talked through and dealt with a lot of the issues that had been troubling me and always came away from the session feeling positive and accomplished. Now having finished the sessions, I feel a great improvement to my self esteem and self worth, and overall am able to deal with problems or issues that occur in my day to day life. I would definitely say that Memory, and The Wellbeing Oxford team had a hugely positive impact on my life and I would recommend them to anyone who was considering talking therapy.
I would like to thank the Well Being team, in particular John for working with me to process my failed marriage and find closure. Not been easy seven months but having someone to listen to me and challenge me in a professional capacity helped me see things in ways I would have never done alone. Now I feel ready to form a new relationship and looking forward to whatever 2018 holds in stock for me. thank you.
Investing in my personal wellbeing was the best thing I did for myself in 2016 and proud that at long last I have had closure with things that have held me back and kept me stuck for nearly forty years of my life. Before, I could not have imagined the professional approach and knowledge that the therapist had at understanding me and my needs. I have no regrets at spending the money I did because its given me a new life and new confidence I never thought I had. Talking therapy definitely helps if one is open to explore the challenges and ready to deal with them with help of a professional. Thanks to Well Being.
After years of denial about my alcoholism I was forced to seek therapy when my mother passed away and my brother threatened to cut me out of his life unless I got help. It was a push that I resented at first yet became a saving line as I was able to talk about the shame I had kept all inside and tried to forget through drinking. I found talking very helpful although at times I would cancel as it was very hard to face up to the truths. A year after starting therapy and combining with support from AA I have not touched alcohol in five months and my life is already much better and for once I feel like I am living. I am fortunate to have a brother and my lovely nieces whom I adore and now free to spend more time with family without threatening anyone with my behaviour after a drink too many. I am grateful to the work of dedicated therapists at Well Being who were very patient with me and never turned me away even when I was being horrible. I miss my mother and wish she would be here to see me now but I am learning to live without her and just forming new meaningful relationships.
