Our service is for young people with difficulties caused by intense worrying, fearfulness, phobic avoidance, nervousness and panic. We provide comprehensive diagnostic and family assessments to identify anxiety disorders and the impact they are having on the young person and family’s functioning.

Where an anxiety disorder is present and requires treatment, we offer consultation to services about treatment, and provide individual and family-based CBT.

Our research leads the way in improving evidence-based treatments for childhood anxiety disorders. Families seen in the clinic are often invited to participate in ongoing research projects. Our staff provide training for clinicians on the assessment and treatment of childhood anxiety disorders in our clinic, nationally and internationally.
