Making EMDR and Energy Therapies more accessible in Oxford
Registered Charity 1182200
Low Cost Trauma Focused Therapy with Highly Experienced Psychotherapists
The length of our current waiting list means the waiting time between initial contact and being seen for regular sessions is well over 6 months. We are not taking any further referrals for the time being as we find it to be unhelpful for people to be held on a waiting list for very long periods. Message posted 05/02/19. UPDATE 20/05/19 - We expect to reopen our waiting list in September
What do we do?
- We provide trauma focused therapy to people living in Oxfordshire who are unable to afford private therapy or access appropriate NHS or insurance funded therapy.
- We include within our understanding of trauma a wide range of disturbing experiences including trauma arising in armed conflict, road traffic accidents, sexual assaults, childhood abuse (including sexual abuse), bullying and neglect
- We hope to raise the profile of the trauma treatments EMDR and Energy Therapies in Oxford.
Whom can we help?
We hope to help people living in Oxfordshire who:
- are looking for therapy because their lives are seriously affected now by difficult experiences in the past
- are stable enough to be able to benefit from therapeutic intervention and to keep appointments with reasonable regularity
- have other support available, if needed, for such issues as benefits, housing, court cases or immigration
- are sufficiently in control of alcohol or drug use so that there is no significant risk of attendance under their influence
- are unable to pay the usual feels for private therapy or access appropriate trauma therapy through NHS or insurance*.
