Summary:
Our service provides assessment and treatment for young people with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related conditions, including BDD, tic disorders, Tourette’s syndrome, anxiety and habit disorders, including trichotillomania.

We also assess and treat OCD related anxiety disorders in young people with a developmental disorder, e.g. autism spectrum disorders or neurological conditions.

We provide a range of evidence-based care packages, tailored to meet the needs of the young person and their parents or carers.

Many of the young people we see are offered individual Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which may involve parents or carers and other family members.

We have an active research programme and are committed to increasing knowledge and understanding of the disorders we treat, and developing our treatments to help improve the outcomes for young people with OCD.

We also offer an extensive programme of training and consultancy in the assessment, treatment and management of different aspects of OCD through seminars, workshops, individual case supervision and research project supervision.

All service users referred to our service will be expected to maintain contact with their local CAMHS or GP service. These services will receive correspondence from our team throughout treatment.
