About us

The Oxford Development Centre Ltd was established in 1997 and comprises The Oxford Stress and Trauma Centre and Oxfordshire’s Independent Psychology Service. We provide confidential,private, specialist psychological therapy to children, adolescents and adults.

Our Clinical Director Dr Claudia Herbert and her team of highly skilled psychologists and psychotherapists offer a wide range of specialist therapies including CBT, EMDR, Sensorimotor Therapy, Integrative and Body-focussed Psychotherapy.  We help clients with a wide range of psychological problems, including depression, anxiety, stress and performance problems, eating disorders, addiction, anger management, relationship issues, health-related problems, grief and bereavement amongst others.

Additionally, we are a specialist service for trauma-related problems, PTSD and complex trauma, as well as Personality Disorders and dissociative problems such as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). We see clients on a one-to-one basis and, subsequent to an initial assessment, each treatment plan is individually tailored to a client's needs.

We are located in Witney, Oxfordshire and Stroud, Gloucestershire. Both settings offer a warm, non-clinical and friendly environment.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
