Services for organisations
The Oxford Counselling and Psychotherapy Service (OCPS) has been providing counselling for organisations in Oxford City and County since 1997. In particular, we have been serving NHS Occupational Health Departments, seeing over 2000 clients over this period. In addition, we have worked with other public and private bodies.
We provide a fast and efficient referral system which means that a staff member referred to us will have spoken to one of our team within 24 hours of the referral and then will normally have a face to face meeting with a counsellor within a week.
The initial telephone conversation will establish the issues and needs of the person who has been referred and also their location, travel arrangements and time availability so that the most appropriate referral for counselling can be made.
While we are firmly committed to maintaining client confidentiality we also understand the needs of referring organisations to assess the effectiveness of our service and we are able to send a short discharge summary back to the organisation indicating progress with work related issues and making suggestions for ongoing support.
At the end of each month our administrator compiles an invoice for all the sessions we have given that month, using code numbers to maintain client confidentiality. There is a small administrative charge for this.
