It's actually for the child of a colleague, rather than clinical work, but I thought you folks might know! She has mild asthma, but gets very anxious when she fe...

Re: Hypochondriasis and PWP's

In my service at Step 2 we do depression, GAD, panic, phobia, stress, health anxiety, OCD (v v simple/mild presentation), binge eating (ditto), and living with LTC. So interesting!

That's so interesting Sam! Do you have additional training for treating health anxiety? We cannot treat it at step 2 in my service!
