Welcome to the Clinic for Dissociative Studies, a national centre of specialist expertise in the care and treatment of people with dissociative disorders.

Dissociative disorders, in particular dissociative identity disorder (D.I.D.), arise in response to extreme trauma and abuse.

As an independent provider to the NHS, we provide diagnosis, outpatient treatment, clinical supervision and training. At the Clinic we also participate in research and education, contributing to a greater understanding of dissociative disorders.
