Triumph over Phobia (TOP UK)
National self-help support group designed to help sufferers of phobias and OCD.
Aims: To help sufferers of phobias or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) to become ex-sufferers.
Activities: Runs a national network of self-help groups to help people with phobia or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) to overcome their problems using graded self-exposure. This means learning how to face up to their fears in a very gradual and structured way so that eventually the anxiety should decrease.
Cost: Initial advice is free but if treatment is required the cost differs depending on the cognitive treatment. Anyone wanting information about costs should either phone or e-mail the organisation.
There is a small weekly fee for attending the group but this is waived for anyone who is unemployed or on benefits.
Local Groups: Has local groups in various areas throughout the country.
Membership: Please enquire for details.
