The psychological therapies team is inclusive of different professions and modalities, including Clinical and Counselling psychologists, Art, Systemic and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists and Assistant Psychologists. Regular reflective practice is offered to the psychological therapies team alongside individual supervision. Oxleas has a strong history in staff support and professional development, offering a range of CPD opportunities within the Trust. Opportunities to develop supervision skills are consistently available and Oxleas has a long-standing relationship with clinical and counselling doctorate programs in taking trainees and developing the wider workforce.
