OXPIP and the COVID-19 outbreak
In light of the current Covid-19 outbreak, we at OXPIP are closely monitoring the situation in line with government guidelines. We are still offering a full service, but running our therapeutic sessions digitally or via telephone.
We have put together some ideas for parents to take emotional care of themselves, babies and toddlers during this time - please click here to download.
We are privileged to be part of a virtual groups for new mums in Oxfordshire. Click here for more information.
Other organisations also have produced some fantastic resources or made their services available online:
Parents get in touch for a variety of reasons which may include post-natal depression, a baby that struggles to sleep or feed, anxieties about parenthood or a difficult birth experience. There may also be issues from the parent's past or from the transition to parenthood which affects the relationships now they are parents themselves. As well as these reasons, we are currently seeing any parent in Oxfordshire with a child under 2, who may need therapeutic support, including those impacted by a loss of a close family member, as a result of Covid-19 for example. If you wish to make a referral please continue to do so via our website or secure email, or call Lizi, Operations Manager on 07784 197 088. Due to remote working, referrals should not be sent by post.
Your therapist will contact you to make arrangements for remote face-to-face sessions or telephone consultations. If for any reason you cannot get hold of your therapist please contact Helen, our Clinical Director on 07934 517 400. This will be reviewed regularly and we will do our best to keep you informed.
Please note we are not an emergency service, so if you are concerned in the first instance, please contact your GP.
All OXPIP face-to-face training has currently been suspended. While face to face is our preferred method of teaching, we will be running some of our training and lecture series online. Please visit the training section of our website for more details. Due to the content of our training, not all of our courses will be able to be delivered online. If you would like to register your interest in a course, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can keep you updated.
