About Oakwood Psychology Services

We offer voluntary placement opportunities for trainee and qualified counsellors, CBT therapists, counselling psychologists and drama/art therapists who have a particular interest in developing their skills in helping adults aged 18+ with eating disorders and related issues.

We accept placement applications on a rolling basis throughout the year, and operate a selective competency-based application process. Please check the person specification before preparing your application, as we can only consider applicants who meet the essential criteria.

**You must have at least 50 hours counselling experience to apply for a one-to-one psychological therapy placement**
