TalkingSpace Plus is an Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service part of Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
We offer evidence-based psychological treatments to people experiencing common mental health problems such as depression or anxiety disorders, using a stepped care model.
We also work with people who are experiencing difficulties or struggling to manage Long Term Health Condition(s).
TalkingSpace Plus is unable to meet the needs of people who have severe and enduring mental health problems like Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Personality Disorders or Psychosis.

In accordance to NICE Guidelines, most people accessing TalkingSpace Plus will be offered individual or group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but we also routinely offer other psychological interventions such as Counselling for Depression, Mindfulness for Depression, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Behavioural Couples Therapy, Insomnia Support and Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).
Any adult who is registered with a Oxfordshire GP surgery, can be referred to the service. We are able to accept referrals for 16-18 year olds who have been referred by CAMHS Spa.
To measure depression symptoms, score ranges:
0 – 4: normal
5 – 9: mild
10 – 14: moderate
15 – 19: moderately severe
20 – 27: severe
A score of 9 or above would be determined as in caseness for depressive symptoms.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are only offering remote treatment options using online solutions or telephone appointments. If you have any questions please contact us. Alternatively, we will contact each patient if there are any further changes to the service.
