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.
