This is a specialist and tertiary level service for people with OCD, BDD and other complex anxiety disorders living in the London boroughs of Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth.
We are a small (3.7 whole time equivalents) team of dedicated and compassionate clinicians including Cognitive Behavioural Therapists, Clinical Psychologist and Psychiatrists. We offer input at home, clinic or in community locations, as is clinically indicated.
To be considered for assessment, patients must be aged 18 or over, and be at level 4 or 5 severity according to NICE guidelines, usually having had a previous trial of CBT and medication for the disorder being referred for. F ollowing acceptance of the referral, we offer an assessment and recommendations are made which may include treatment with our service.
Treatments we offer are evidence based and include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and pharmacological recommendations. Treatment is delivered in an individual or group format, usually on a face to face basis, but with flexibility to work remotely as clinically required. We also offer consultations and advice to our colleagues across the Trust.
