Specialist Helplines

Specialist Helplines

Anxiety UK oversee a number of specialist helplines, run by people with personal experience or expert knowledge of a particular anxiety disorder. These services are only open to Anxiety UK members and can provide tailored advice and support around a specific condition.


Dental Anxiety Email Support

Run by qualified and General Dental Council registered dentists, the email support service gives support and guidance to those with anxiety around visiting the dentist. The email to use is dentalanxiety@anxietyuk.org.uk, but please do allow 48 hours for a response!

Please be aware that none of these helplines are able to provide a counselling or crisis service. If you are in need of further help, contact the Samaritans on 116 123 or read about accessing therapy with your Anxiety UK membership.
