Oak Tree is dedicated to the provision of excellence in the areas of counselling and  psychotherapy, psychological assessment, psycho-educational training, supervision and clinical research. We adopt an 'integrative' approach, which is underpinned by the highest standards in ethical and research informed practice, allowing clients to achieve their greatest potential using a therapy co-created to meet individual needs. We believe every person is individual, and has the capacity to fully realise their unique qualities and strengths.

Leading provider of counselling, psychotherapy, clinical research & psychological assessments...        

Experienced psychologists and psychotherapists Dr. Matt Shorrock and Francesca Shorrock are the founders of Oak Tree Therapy, Training & Research Institute (known as The MInd Institute, across Europe). With offices in Manchester [UK], and Vienna [Austria], they offer quality services in psychotherapy, consultancy, supervision and training.


In recent years, 'Oak Tree' has flourished following numerous invitations to offer consultancy and professional psychological commentary for British television and radio programs. With a highly skilled and fully qualified team of therapists to support them, Matt and Francesca also enjoy running their popular private practice, writing books, and post-doctoral research in counselling psychology.


And in partnership with the University of Manchester, Oak Tree is delighted to introduce Kasia Wilk, an experienced psychotherapist who is also completing her doctoral training as a counselling psychologist. Kasia works with individuals, couples and groups (adults and children), and has a special interest in cultural diversity.


We are also very honoured to have Laura Ann Douglas as the latest member of our UK team. With extensive experience in the corporate sector, in managing and developing people, Laura is a very competent therapist, supervisor and trainer of therapists. With a strong background in CBT, NLP and person-centred therapies, Laura also offers life-coaching.
