A Confident Start

Therapy, advice and support for children and young people in Oxfordshire

 

Welcome!

We are a group of Clinical Psychologists and other professionals who provide support for young people and families in Oxfordshire.

"My name is Helen, and I am the founder of this practice. We help young people through emotional, psychological and educational difficulties. We believe that young people and families have their own insight and skills. Our job is to help unlock those skills and to build a toolkit for the future."
