Meet Caroline

Hello, I’m Caroline Parfitt, founder and Director of Oak Therapies. 

I have worked as a successful independent Occupational Therapist since 2016, and in 2011 I moved into the bungalow with my husband and family, where we developed the property into what it is today.

Oak Therapies got its name from the oak trees that surround the property. They all started as small acorns and grew into beautiful, resilient, reliable, solid structures. I used to sit in the rear field thinking about how symbolic the oak tree was. I wanted to create a safe space where you could grow and develop just like an acorn.
