Private therapy

Why choose Oasis-Talk for your private therapy?

Oasis-Talk is accredited by the Royal College of Psychiatrists (CQCI Appts). This accreditation assures you of a recognised professional standard of delivery, including standards of information protection, privacy, safeguarding and clinical excellence.

Oasis-Talk staff are professional and friendly and will help you find what you need. There are many different therapeutic approaches, each of which works best for different people and different issues. Our therapists are experienced and well supervised to support you to find the best type of therapy for you.

We often support professionals, leaders and managers, and celebrities in different fields, and have extensive experience in helping successful men and women solve the challenges they are facing at home and work.

Oasis-Talk is committed to clinical excellence in the delivery of all talking therapies and well-being sessions. We proved this in our NHS delivery in Bristol and South Gloucestershire, where our clients consistently achieved above average recovery rates both locally and nationally. When we started to deliver longer therapeutic assessments that included therapy as well as assessment, our reliable improvement rates of 71% increased.

What you can expect

Talking Therapies are usually face to face for 50-60 minutes once a week. If you prefer a different frequency this can be arranged with your therapist. The number of sessions are according to need. Some people need only one session, and others need therapy for up to a year. We don’t usually extend therapy beyond a year. We aim to work briefly as we believe that therapy is for helping people to live life well without the support of therapy. You will regularly review your therapy with your therapist to see what is working and what isn’t.

Talking therapy is a safe confidential space where you can hear yourself and what really matters to you. It can be challenging as well as supportive, and sometimes surprising. It will challenge unhelpful beliefs and help you to process difficult situations. It can help you recover from recent and past trauma, grief and loss. It can help you find solutions to current difficulties. It can help your relationships with others.

Types of private therapy

There are many different kinds of therapy. Some may appeal to you more than others or be particularly suited to the problem you want to work on. We can help you find the best type of therapy for you.
