The CTAD clinic offers a specialist service for professionals interested in receiving training, supervision and consultation in the field of dissociative disorders, as well as individual therapeutic services for people with these conditions.
Most of our work is 'face-to-face', although we can also provide some services via Skype, for example, supervision and in some cases, therapy. This is helpful for people who live too far from our base to travel easily.
CTAD works alongside the West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group to develop referral pathways for people needing specialist help with conditions such as Dissociative Identity Disorder. We have a number of therapists highly experienced in treating dissociative disorders and assisting in building awareness of such conditions.
If you are interested in finding out about the other work offered by members of our team, for example, treatment of more common problems such as depression, anxiety, OCD, please click on the Home image below, which will take you to our partner page, Cheshire Psychology.
