Child Therapy Oxfordshire

At Oxford CBT, we extend our services beyond the city of Oxford itself. We also cater to families and schools across Oxfordshire, ensuring that children in the wider region have access to high-quality therapy.

What is the most effective therapy for children?

When it comes to child therapy, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Every child is unique, and their therapy should reflect their individual needs. Our experienced child therapists draw from a range of evidence-based approaches to create personalised treatment plans.


Some of the most effective therapies for children include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), play therapy, family therapy, and art therapy. These approaches provide children with the tools to explore their emotions, develop coping strategies, and build healthy relationships.

What will a child therapist do?

Our child therapists are trained professionals who specialise in working with young minds. They create a safe and supportive environment where children can express themselves freely. Through active listening and empathy, therapists establish strong therapeutic relationships with their young clients.


A child therapist will employ various techniques to help children understand and manage their emotions. They may use play, art, storytelling, or other creative methods to engage with children and facilitate their healing process. Therapists also collaborate closely with parents and schools to ensure a holistic approach to treatment.


What kind of therapy is used with kids?

Child therapy encompasses a wide range of therapeutic approaches. The choice of therapy depends on the child’s age, personality, and specific challenges. At Oxford CBT, our therapists utilise evidence-based techniques tailored to each child’s needs.


Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a commonly used approach that helps children identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors. Play therapy allows children to express themselves through play, facilitating emotional healing and growth. Family therapy involves the whole family in the treatment process, addressing relational dynamics and fostering a supportive environment.


Through a combination of these and other proven therapeutic modalities, we strive to provide effective and compassionate care to children in need.
