Making EMDR and Energy Therapies more accessible in Oxford

If you would like us to send you some suggestions for alternative sources of support in Oxfordshire, please send a message via the website. Please note this will not be specifically for trauma-focused therapy.
When we reopen for referrals, we will post a notice here.

Low Cost Trauma Focused Therapy with Experienced Psychotherapists
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 Oxfordshire.
Who 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 not actively suicidal
- are unable to pay the usual fees for private therapy or access appropriate trauma therapy through NHS or insurance.
