Treating anxiety: a feasibility clinical study using acupuncture and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

The proposed project is a feasibility study for a small scale pragmatic randomised control trial (RCT).

It aims to assess:

  • whether patients felt the same or different after CBT or acupuncture
  • and show whether patients liked acupuncture as well as CBT
  • recruitment and retention
  • safety


We are looking for:

participants who:

  • are over 18 years old
  • have a diagnosis of generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) by GP or other mental health professionals
  • have a minimum score of 10 in generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) questionnaire
  • have not had acupuncture, psycho-therapy or other treatments for anxiety for at least six weeks before starting the study
  • are not pregnant
  • are english speakers


  • London


No expenses as funds are very limited. However, participants receive eight free treatments from health professionals.
