TalkingSpace Plus is an Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service in Oxfordshire delivering cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based psychological interventions, through a stepped care treatment model to people in the community with common mental health problems.
To support our continued expansion, we have been developing pathways in working with patients with anxiety and/or depression and living with long term physical health conditions such as Cardiac disease. We also offer employment support services.
TalkingSpace Plus continues to develop and build on its excellent reputation of delivering high quality NICE recommended treatment.

In Oxfordshire, the counselling trainee will be hosted by Principal Medical Ltd, one of the partners within TSP. This is a three-year funded, salaried trainee role working within TSP and being trained by Metanoia; it will involve learning to practice the Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression approach, one of the counselling approaches approved by IAPT nationally.
