About us

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 *

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
