Our service provides assessment and treatment for young people with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD).

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 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 BDD.

We also offer an extensive programme of training and consultancy in the assessment, treatment and management of different aspects of BDD 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.
