Before we talk, we listen.
In the first instance, we usually offer a telephone assessment to help us understand your needs. We’re committed to taking whatever time may be needed to really appreciate your circumstances. We believe that by listening carefully and gaining an in-depth understanding of the difficulties you’re facing, we can provide you with an excellent service and identify which therapy is likely to be most appropriate for you as an individual.

Oakdale is able to offer a flexible range of appointments and appointment times, including sessions in the evenings or at the weekend.
Our team will discuss your preferences with you, including the options for telephone and online sessions, once we have received your referral.
