We’re looking for an experienced Counselling Psychologist, Clinical Psychologist or Psychotherapist with an interest in working in an Integrated, Cutting-edge and Body-focussed way with experience of working with Trauma & Dissociation. Join our team at Oxfordshire’s longest established private psychology service, The Oxford Development Centre and The Centre for Trauma Healing and Growth
Our philosophy centres around providing a service which is committed to personal growth and development, for both our clients and us too, as professional therapists. We believe that in order to be effective therapists, we need to feel enthusiastic about and committed to the work we do, which tends to be complex and deep. We place a lot of emphasis on creating a pleasant, supportive and stimulating working environment. Our service is committed to helping people strengthen their own inner resources in order to enable them to recover from their traumatic and adverse experiences to live their life in a positive and functionally healthy way. We operate from a Positive Psychology framework, where we try to avoid diagnostically labelling or categorising our clients as we understand that many of their problems are caused by survival-based coping strategies, which now are no longer adaptive and do not serve them well. Although, some of our work does involve the request for symptom reduction, our preferred focus of working is to help people recognise, understand and transform the underlying survival based patterns and causes of their problems in order to help them connect with their unique authentic Self.
