Oxford Counselling Centre was established in 2013. We set up the organisation because we could see the need for high quality, affordable and easily accessible counselling in Oxford.
Since then we have grown both in terms of number of counsellors we have, as well as the range of therapies we provide. We are proud to have provided thousand of hours of counselling and therapeutic services and have supported hundreds of clients.
We are pleased that many of our ongoing referrals come via recommendations, a reflection of the high quality service we provide.
All of our therapists are passionate about supporting clients and providing a non-judgment, supportive environment where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Through a relationship built on trust, empathy and respect our counsellors establish unique relationships that enables the client to feel understood and listened to and can result in a greater understanding of self.
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, Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Person Centred Counselling and Therapy in Arts. The counsellor will talk to you about what suits your needs best.
Training, qualifications & experience
Our counsellors are all fully trained (Diploma level or above) and are members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) or equivalent professional body, and therefore adhere to relevant ethical frameworks and guidelines. Oxford Counselling Centre is also an organisational member of the BACP.
Our coach is a BACP Accredited counsellor and has completed an Institute of Leadership and Management Level 5 Coaching and Mentoring Course.
Our hypnotherapist has a diploma and many years experience working with hypnotherapy.
Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
