School can be a difficult environment for children, with the stresses of learning sitting alongside the pressures of building relationships and estabilishing their personability.

Their ability to cope with and enjoy school is often directly linked to their wellbeing, which in turn leads to an increase in confidence.

We work with employers, managers, teachers and rehabilitation providers across the UK, providing therapy within a group environment. In some circumstances, you may be able to claim on your company health insurance policy for some treatments provided to your employees.

Our support

All support provided by Oxford CBT is bespoke and flexible, depend on specific requirements and the intended outcome of any therapy.  Any sensitivities or practical considerations are also taken into account and decisions are always made with the full agreement of the patient or their legal guardian.

The sessions we provide will provide a supportive and non-judgemental environmental, aimed at educating and motivating individuals and are always tailored dependent on the feedback of the patient throughout.

Sessions themselves are typically one hour long and can take place at our clinics or elsewhere, although we would ask that it is somewhere clean, comfortable and well ventilated.

At the request of patients, we can formulate action plans for homeworking between sessions, and/or arrange further appointments if necessary.

What can we help with?
We can help both children and their teachers with a wide variety of issues and difficulties, some of which are listed below.  If you would like to find out more or ask about any issues not listed, please get in touch and we’ll do our best to help.
Anger management Children
Most children have behavioural problems from time to time and anger is a normal and useful emotion. It can tell children that things are not fair or right. However, being a powerful emotion and it can be quite alarming to see a child react to anger with aggressive outbursts. During a given situation they may feel criticised, misunderstood or falsely accused which leads to a sense of injustice. The cumulative effect of a number of these situations can lead the child to believe they are not good enough, wrong or a bad person.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Children
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has symptoms that include impulsiveness m inattentiveness and hyperactivity. People suffering from ADHD tend to be diagnosed at an early age, and may become more apparent as their circumstances change, for instance when they start school.  Symptoms usually improve with age, but many adults with the condition may have additional problems, such as sleep and anxiety disorders. For more information and details of how we can help please get in touch.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) / Autism assessment (ADOS) / Asperger Syndrome Children
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the term used to describe a number of conditions, including Asperger Syndrome. These conditions typically affect a person's ability to interact with society, as well their general interests, behaviour and ability to learn. They will often see, hear and feel the world differently to other people and although many autistic people share certain difficulties, it will most likely affect them in different ways. People with Asperger Syndrome in particular don’t usually experience the learning disabilities that those with Autism do but might still have difficulties with understanding and processing language. For more information and details of how we can help please get in touch.
Low mood and depression Children
Children and teenagers often suffer from low moods and depression, feelings that can be long-lasting and wide range of effects on their wider life. Identifying these difficulties early is key in terms of instigating change. We recognise the pressures faced by young people and can help make both the individual and their parents and teachers aware of key signs and symptoms they should look out for.

Managing exam stress Children
When young people experience stress linked to school work they may disengage from the subject and fall behind with their studies. It may also lead to problems with their attentions span, difficulty sleeping, mood swings, changes in appetite, social problems and relationship difficulties among others.

Mindfulness Children
Mindfulness is the practice of focusing one’s attention on the present moment while non-judgementally accepting the thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations that arise.  It has been used therapeutically for thousands of years to address the physical, psychological, and emotional wellbeing.

Perfectionism Children
Perfectionism is a tendency to set high standards that can either not be met, or can only be met with great difficulty. Perfectionists tend to believe that achieving anything short of perfection is a failure, and that even minor imperfections will lead to catastrophe – a stressful and unpleasant experience for children in particular. For more information and details of how we can help please get in touch.
Separation anxiety Children
Separation anxiety can be a serious emotional problem characterised by extreme distress when a child is away from their parent family member or guardian. As with general anxiety is difficult to establish whether or not a child simply needs time and patience to overcome their fears, or whether they have a more serious problem. We can work with the child and their parents to determine the issues and take steps to help – for more information please get in touch.
Social anxiety Children
Social anxiety disorder is a persistent and often overwhelming fear of social situations and is one of the most common anxiety disorders in children. It can manifest itself as an extreme form of shyness where the sufferer can experience fear and anxiety when undertaking everyday activities such as going out in public and speaking on the phone. People with social anxiety will worry about social activities before, during and after they take place which can become very distressing. They often fear they will do or say something wrong that will draw negative attention to themselves and this often has a serious effect on self-esteem and confidence.
