My son has facial tics, mainly eyes and he can't stop doing it. Have seen gp an on a long waiting list with Camhs. In the meantime he is very distressed and is having constant headaches, poor concentration and doesn't want to go to school as he is so self conscious . He is nearly15 and has exams. Is there any thing I can do to help him whilst waiting for his appt? Not sure whether to pay privately for Cbt or something, but not sure of best treatment? Other than that no mental health problems, good grades at school etc, just some mild OCD. Please help! Thanks.
