Anxiety New Zealand Trust

The Phobic Trust (now The Anxiety New Zealand Trust) was first conceptualised by Marcia Read QSO and the late Mr David Ludbrook. Marcia went on to Form the Phobic Trust in 1980. A 24 hour voluntary phone line was established in 1983 and from this a trial clinic started in Parnell, with the main St Luke's clinic being created soon afterwards. It was officially Incorporated in 1987. The 24 hour help line continues to operate today.

If anxiety, panic attacks or phobias are interfering with your life or the life of one of your loved ones – contact the trust today.
