Claudia Herbert founded The Oxford Development Centre in Witney, Oxfordshire in 1997 to provide the special care, safety and sensitivity which people suffering from psychological problems need.  With over 20 years’ clinical experience and a specialism of working with clients from multiple trauma backgrounds, she wanted to build a centre of excellence with like-minded, enthusiastic and forward-thinking colleagues to offer a unique approach to help people heal, transform and grow.

Rather than confining treatment to single, standard methods her aim was to develop a more holistic, integrative, client-centred approach which involves creating a bespoke plan of care for each individual drawing on the most modern, science and research-based therapies available. This spans elements from CBT 3rd Wave, including Schema Therapy and Mindfulness and Transpersonal and Depth Psychology, to body-oriented psychosensory therapies such as EMDRSensorimotor PsychotherapyComprehensive Resource ModelCalatoniaHavening Techniques®Craniosacral Therapy and Energy Psychology. In practice, this means finding the most experienced, able and dedicated consultants who share my vision and feel committed to keeping abreast of all the latest scientific developments.  We all undergo regular professional training and work on our own personal development to ensure we are qualified to deliver the most advanced psychological approaches available.

People using Sounding Bowls are very individual. NHS therapists, University Doctors, pioneers of sound therapy, healers and many others.
One such remarkable and unusual individual is Faith Challinor-Wheatley who lives amongst trees and finds their energies strongly in the Sounding Bowls. Faith spends much of each day caring for her mother whose survival of cancer in great old age must be in part to the endless sound therapies she gets from her daughter.
Faith offers a range of healing sounds to a diverse set of clients but is focussing more and more on the Sounding Bowls since she is getting such strong results with them. Many of Faith’s clients are finding strength to manage their lives and even turn them around with Faith’s work.
Her site is www.soundhealingtherapies.co.uk/
