NOSA (National Outreach Service For Anxiety)
NOSA is a national service. We are happy to asses any problem that is related to anxiety, anywhere in the country. Some of the problems we most commonly help people with include Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), hoarding problems, panic, agoraphobia, health anxiety, specific phobias (e.g. fear of flying), emetophobia (fear of vomiting), PTSD/Trauma and social anxiety.
The psychological therapies we provide are recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) guidelines. You may know that NICE is the scientific body that advises the National Health Service (NHS) about treatment. This usually involves offering a specialist course of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
All treatments at NOSA start with an initial assessment with one of our experienced practitioners. We appreciate that first contact can be a daunting and anxiety provoking experience. We therefore put extra effort into making sure you feel heard and supported during all communication with us.
Training, qualifications & experience
All practitioners working with the service are accredited with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
In addition, all psychologists working on behalf of the service will also be registered with both the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and British Psychological Society (BPS).
