offer a friendly welcome to all who have an interest in OCD and its related
Disorders and aim to help each other through mutual support and information.
Please note that
there is a nominal entrance fee of £3 per person payable at the door, this goes
towards the cost of room hire.
In some meetings we
have Guest Speakers on OCD Issues, others we have Open Discussion Meetings,
where everyone has the opportunity to share any problems or experiences in
managing their OCD Symptoms.
We never put anyone
“on the spot” and Visitors are welcome to take part as much or as little as
they feel comfortable with, at a pace to suit everyone. However, the maximum
benefit may be gained from actively taking part in discussion.
We aim to
facilitate Group and One to One discussion on OCD related symptoms.
