A Professional Psychology Service Tailored To Your Personal Requirements

The Oxford Development Centre has over two decades experience, providing a non-clinical but highly professional, caring and personal service to enable people to achieve a balanced lifestyle and emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being.

We’ve been helping individuals, couples and families since 1998 with a wide range of problems, including:

  • Relationship Difficulties and Break-ups
  • Sexual Intimacy and Sexual Problems
  • Family Problems
  • Attachment Problems
  • Bereavement
  • Coming to Terms with Chronic Illness or Chronic Pain
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Personality Disorders
  • Life Direction and Transition Issues
  • Work-Life Balance Issues

Inspired by the vision and philosophy of founder Dr Claudia Herbert, The Oxford Development Centre’s approach has always been holistic, integrative and compassionate.  She has never believed in a quick-fix, one size fits all method. Instead, her philosophy is to draw on a wide range of the most up-to-date, research-based therapies, the latest scientifically-informed psychosensory approaches and Transpersonal and Depth Psychology.

This extensive resource base has enabled the Oxford Development Centre team to select elements from various approaches to create bespoke treatment programmes tailored to the specific needs of each individual. In line with recent neurobiological findings, we’ve always recognised the importance of a secure, caring therapeutic relationship as a fundamental factor in the healing process.

The service has built an excellent reputation, supporting individual clients on their journeys as well as providing expert Medico-Legal services, Supervision, Training and Personal Development to Health Professionals, businesses and organisations.

Our clients are always guaranteed a warm welcome and an entirely confidential service.  We offer empathic professional psychological assessment, treatment, advice, consultation, supervision and training in a friendly, understanding and peaceful environment.
