They offer assessment, psychological treatment and consultation for people with PTSD. This can include victims of rape and sexual assault; victims of serious physical assaults; victims of serious road traffic accidents; and victims of other ‘single incident’ traumas.
Their work has expanded to also include the needs of refugees and asylum seekers, many of whom have experienced multiple traumas including war, torture and violent bereavements.  In addition they treat service and ex-military personnel, as well as victims of terrorist attacks.  They work with patients from a wide variety of ethnic groups and many clients who do not speak English.
The service primarily covers five boroughs of London as well as taking some national referrals.  They provide psychological assessment and treatment of PTSD on an outpatient basis.  They do not have inpatient or community outreach facilities.  Their clinicians work within a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) framework and can also offer Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).
As well as treatment they provide teaching, training and supervision to colleagues working with PTSD.  They also undertake and support a range of research activity in the areas of trauma and recovery.
