Oxford Health Psychotherapy Services (OHPS) provide high quality, affordable, safe, professional and confidential Psychotherapy and Counselling Services to Individuals, Couples, Families and Groups in Oxford. We primarily provide face to face therapy but also offer therapy online via Skype or by telephone to help you find relief from emotional conflict. You may not even able to identify the source of the conflict, but it can show up in many ways including:
Anxiety, Depression, Discontent with your life, Emotional disturbance, Grief, Self-harming, Sleep or Insomnia, Stress, Suicidal ideation, Relationship challenges, Parenting challenges, Dieting challenges or Life transitions.
We work with adult individuals, couples, groups and older adults to help them ask important questions, explore emotions without judgement, and achieve a deeper understanding of themselves, their experiences, and their relationships.
We also provide In-Home Counselling services to older adults who must be 65 years of age or older. Special consideration is given to frail, high-risk, home-bound, and/or socially isolated elders who may not be able to acquire mental health services through more conventional means.
At this time, we are only able to provide in-home services to Central Oxford. For those older adults who are able to come to our Oxford office, the same counselling services are available on-site. Counselling services for the elderly are provided by a licensed therapist, trained in geriatric mental health, grief, and crisis intervention.
Our theoretical orientation is integrative, with appropriate interventions chosen for each client and issue. Our approach draws on techniques from cognitive & behavioural therapy, person centred counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, narrative therapy and solution focused brief therapy. Different models help different people as we are all unique. Therefore, the therapy we provide is tailored to the unique needs, aims and concerns of each individual client. We also collaborate, when clinically indicated and with consent, with other mental health professionals to coordinate care.
We provide both short and long-term counselling, working over a few weeks or several months, depending on your individual needs and wishes. We offer regular reviews to ensure that we are meeting your individual needs. We realise that the prospect of psychotherapy; talking about your troubles, past and current experiences can be daunting. To help, we try to provide a warm and welcoming environment where you can feel comfortable and safe. We are committed to providing counselling, and psychotherapy, in a safe, non-judgemental, confidential environment from where you can talk about anything you want, however difficult.

Older Adults (65+) In-Home Counselling Programme
Oxford Health Psychotherapy Services (OHPS) provide In-Home Counselling services to older adults who must be 65 years of age or older at a 25% reduced rate. Special consideration is given to frail, high-risk, home-bound, and/or socially isolated elders who may not be able to acquire mental health services through more conventional means. All requests for service will be considered. At this time, we are only able to provide in-home services to Central Oxford.
Our Older Adult In-Home Counselling Programme provides in-home counselling, emotional support, and telephone follow-ups to home-bound and/or socially isolated older adults who would benefit from weekly counselling and who otherwise, would not have access to mental health services. Many older adults would benefit greatly from supportive counselling but do not qualify for our In-Home Programme. For those older adults who are able to come to our Oxford office, the same counselling services are available on-site.
When adults reach 65+, they face many changes that can cause anxiety and depression – loss of meaningful roles in their family and community, losses that include friends, loved ones, income, independence, declining health and mobility, isolation and loneliness, strained family relationships, and worry about who will take care of them as they age. Long-standing issues such as hoarding and depression, can also intensify with age. Oxford Health Psychotherapy Services (OHPS) offers help and hope in managing these changes.
Through counselling, people learn:
• Different ways of solving problems
• Better communication with partners, children, and parents
• Methods to cope with stress, depression, and anxiety
• How to understand and manage a wide range of feelings
• To strengthen community connections and support
Participants can choose to visit our offices for individual, family, or group sessions, or attend any of the groups services that we offer. Counselling services are provided by a licensed therapist, trained in geriatric mental health, grief, and crisis intervention.
- Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
- Behavioural therapy
- Cognitive analytic therapy (CAT)
- Cognitive and behavioural therapies
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
