Work with us

The Centre for Emotional Health is a national charity based in Oxford. Our vision is for everyone to live an emotionally healthy life.  We promote an approach to life and relationships that equips and supports families and communities to be emotionally healthy.  Family for us is an inclusive word and means not only those connected biologically, it can include anyone who is special in our life.


Our team is driven by our values:

  • Nurturing - nurturing ourselves and one another is key to good emotional health and is the foundation of all we do. We are aware of our own needs and feelings and take responsibility for them as well as being aware of the effect of our behaviour on others.

  • Empathic - empathy means tuning in to someone else’s feelings, understanding their emotional point of view and it is the cornerstone of our Nurturing Programme. We will always try to respond to others in an empathic way.

  • Playful - we create inclusive, motivational working and learning environments through our collaborative, playful approach. This builds positive relationships and develops confidence and enthusiasm.

  • Transformative - our aim is that every interaction with us builds good emotional health. Our training, based on the Nurturing Programme, is instrumental in transforming lives for the better. Self-reflection and evidence help us to continue to learn and develop.


The Centre for Emotional Health is committed to furthering equality, diversity and inclusion and would welcome applications from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.
