  • Dear Amy,

    Many thanks for your email, sorry for the delay in coming back to you. I’ve been trying to find out some information for you.

    I have this email address for people looking for support in Northern Ireland - you may have this already?

    I only have a couple of contacts in Northern Ireland of consultants, but they are for under 18’s.

    If you are looking for support in terms of behavioural therapies then I can send you the details of people offering help with tics using behavioural therapies online so distance wouldn’t be a problem – one such person is Liz Murray

    If you would like more information on the therapies then please email me and I can email them to you

    I hope this is helpful

    Very best wishes
