Our centre leads the way in anxiety treatment in the United Kingdom, in both research and clinical treatment. We treat obsessive compulsive disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and social phobia. We work with people to free them from their anxiety disorder and to improve their quality of life.

We provide cutting edge cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) treatments for anxiety disorders. A high proportion of our patients can expect to be symptom free at the end of treatment. Many of these treatments have been developed by our own teams, have been very effective in randomised controlled trials, and are subject to high levels of quality control. All of our therapists receive clinical supervision to ensure the quality of our therapy. We have an active patient user group who advise us on both research and service provision.

We provide a dedicated mental health service to help people affected by the 2017 London terrorist attacks in Westminster, London Bridge, Finsbury Park and Parsons Green. For information click here
