Triumph Over Phobia (TOP UK)

< Back to directory


TOP (Triumph Over Phobia) is a national network of self-help groups offering help and support to people who experience phobias or obsessive compulsive disorder or other related anxiety.  Self-help manual available.
Local groups available in Lambeth and Southwark as well as nationwide which use structured self-help methods in a supportive group environment.
TOP UK runs a network of self-help therapy groups for sufferers of phobias, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and other related anxiety disorders. The groups are open to anyone, aged 18 or above. You do not need to have seen a doctor or have a formal diagnosis to attend one of our groups.
All the self-help therapy groups meet once a week and are run by trained volunteers, many of whom have overcome a phobia or OCD themselves. The groups use a type of behaviour therapy which is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) principles. In many cases there is a long waiting list for therapy on the NHS but you should be able to access a TOP group immediately.
Anyone who wishes to attend a group will need to complete an application form, none of the groups (with the exception of Jersey) are drop in. There is also a small weekly charge to attend a group but this is reduced for those on low incomes. Triumph Over Phobia does not receive any government funding and we rely on donations to continue our valuable work.
