David Simon Contemporary has committed itself to supporting at one local charitable cause each year. The gallery has
chosen TOP UK as the focus of 2018’s efforts, as although it has just celebrated its 30th Anniversary, it is not as well known about as it should be. Run entirely by volunteers, TOP UK has
built a national network of therapy groups and relies completely on charitable donations, with no government funding. All profits from the auction will go to this worthwhile cause and we hope that
this event will raise thousands of pounds to enable the charity to continue its good work and to raise awareness so that it can support and treat more sufferers.
Triumph Over Phobia aims to help sufferers of phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder and other related anxiety, through a network of therapy groups. Further information about the charity can be found on their website - www.topuk.org.
Triumph Over Phobia (TOP UK) was started in 1987 with the professional help of Professor I M Marks, MD, FRCPsych of the Institute of Psychiatry, London, by the late Celia Bonham Christie MBE, MA, who had overcome her fear of flying by following the self-help instructions from Living with Fear. Groups use a structured self-help approach which is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) principles. Groups are warm, structured and supportive and goals are set each week to help overcome fears. TOP UK records show that working in a group is very beneficial. Many people, despite years of suffering, improve greatly in an average time of 5 months.
