The Anxiety and OCD clinic is a psychological service for the treatment of anxiety disorders in adults, including social anxiety, panic attacks, generalised anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder and general issues with life stress.

We offer a range of evidence-based therapies across different modalities (such as in-person and telehealth) and hope to make psychological treatment more accessible.
