We are committed to providing a quality service that reflects the experience, knowledge and competence of our practitioners. We provide evidence based therapies and take responsibility for what we do through rigorous adherence to appropriate clinical standards. We ensure that each referral is carefully considered and managed appropriately.
We are responsive, flexible and adaptable to the needs of our clients and will always do our utmost to achieve the outcomes that our clients are looking for.
We are an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), meeting their robust professional and ethical standards.
In addition, all practitioners working at the Oakdale Centre are required to be members of their relevant professional body and adhere to their standards and guidelines.
The Oakdale Centre is an accredited provider of adoption support services by all fifteen local authorities in Yorkshire and the Humber.
The Oakdale Centre has robust policies and procedures in place in order to ensure that it provides the appropriate standard of clinical and corporate governance in relation to work with clients and how it functions as a not-for-profit Community Interest Company.
All practitioners carry professional indemnity insurance and have enhanced DBS checks.
The Oakdale Centre and its practitioners are committed to providing therapies that have a proven evidence base. For our clients this means that they can feel confident in the knowledge that the therapies we provide are well researched and validated, and in line with guidance provided by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
Our practitioners are experts in their field and through their own continuous professional development they strive to keep themselves abreast of new developments in Psychology, Psychiatry, Counselling and Psychotherapy.
In all of our different services, we ask clients to complete clinical and outcomes questionnaires so that we can measure the extent to which we have helped them improve. Clients are also asked to give us feedback on their experience of our services, which helps us ensure that we continue to provide a high standard of clinical care.
Oakdale has centres in Harrogate, Halifax and Horsforth.
All of our centres are equipped with fully staffed reception areas, comfortable waiting rooms, and purposely designed consulting rooms for our work with adults, children and families.
Our Harrogate centre is located in a Victorian building overlooking Valley Gardens. Our Halifax centre is close to the town, a short walk from the main bus and train stations. Our Horsforth centre is in the grounds of the Grove Methodist Church, just off the high street.
Oakdale practitioners work from a number of other venues and we can also arrange home visits if necessary. In addition, we provide telephone and online psychological therapies nationwide.
