Personal Development Work

It is not necessary to have a specific psychological problem or condition to benefit from The Oxford Development Centre’s services.

Lots of people are attracted by the idea of furthering their own personal development and want to engage in a path of inner growth in a safe, confidential and comfortable setting.  If you would like to get to know yourself better or if you feel unfulfilled with the way your life is at present, psychological therapy could be very helpful to you.  Your personal development work would start with an initial assessment process that enables you to review your life, your life choices, your particular coping strategies and evaluate where you are at present.  Your therapist would help you identify your personal strengths and resources and areas of potential growth as well as strategies that may currently block or hold you back.  This would form the foundation for your personal development work which is entirely tailored to your individual needs.

Personal development work can provide a way to understand yourself better, to like and accept yourself more and to make more informed choices about important areas of your life such as career and personal relationships.  We take a holistic approach with the aim of maximising your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being.

Besides one-to-one consultations, we offer Group Therapy sessions such as the Circles of Compassion courses which involve working with others in small groups led by a qualified psychotherapist.  We also offer specialist personal development for health and mental health specialists and for other professionals working in business or industry.
