Clinical Psychologist, NHS Foundation Trust, UK

Thank you for a wonderful session!  It was so helpful for thinking about how to unpick tics from tic-like behaviours, and how to adapt tic interventions for individuals with co-occuring conditions. It was a really thought provoking session that deepened my understanding of tics and tourettes.

I think the training was relatable and accessible.  The information was pitched at the correct level and there was ample opportunity to ask questions and reflect on our open cases.

I appreciated the videos in the basic training and see in intervention in action.  This really helped to consolidate my learning and increase my understanding.  I also found the application of the intervention when there are co-morbid presentations for the patient very helpful as this is so common within our service.  I also found the recourse section very helpful, I ll look forward to purchasing some of the books and reading the journals.

‘I found that the advanced course (whilst brief in time) was thorough in covering any additional questions, whilst recapping previous knowledge and then mopping up any unknowns. Great opportunity was given to share thoughts/feelings about applying this to practice- with positive encouragement to do so’.

“I recently attended the Behavioural Therapy for Tics Institute's (BTTI) virtual training and was thoroughly impressed with the experience. The content was highly informative and particularly useful for addressing tics. The speakers stood out for their clarity and engaging delivery, making complex topics easily understandable. The practicality of the training materials, especially the slides, was notable, offering direct applicability in clinical settings. These resources are invaluable for professionals dealing with tics in children. Given the high-quality content and practical tools provided, I highly recommend BTTI's training to health professionals working with kids experiencing tics. This program provides comprehensive insights and effective strategies that are essential in professional practice.”

ESSTS Chair, 2023-2026

I have known Dr. Seonaid Anderson for several years, and we started to collaborate more closely when I became a board member of the European Society for the Study of Tourette Syndrome (ESSTS). Dr. Anderson has made significant contributions to the engagement of patient advocacy groups within the ESSTS society.

In 2023, she hosted the 15th European Conference on Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders in Brussels. Throughout the preparations leading up to the conference and during the event itself, I was impressed by Dr. Anderson's commitment, enthusiasm, and her tireless work ethic. Her professionalism was evident during the entire process, and she proved to be not only a skilled and dedicated professional but also a warm and amiable individual.

Dr. Anderson's commitment is also seen in her engagement in various scientific projects and her passion for advancing our understanding of Tourette syndrome and related conditions.

It has always been (and will still be) an enormous pleasure to work together with Dr. Anderson and I look forward to witnessing her continued contributions to our field.

I have known Seonaid for many years when she was a Research Manager at Tourette’s Action. I have always been impressed by her professionalism, dedication and commitment in supporting clinicians and researchers working in the field of neurodevelopment conditions. She was instrumental in setting up trainings which were well organised and very well received Seonaid also developed clinical consultation sessions bringing together clinicians and researchers in the field which was a fantastic resource.  She was always keen to receive feedback and was attentive to the needs of all participants. Her work in neurodevelopment conditions has certainly furthered my clinical practice and consequently benefited the clients that I see. Seonaid has always been very conscientious, knowledgeable and remains abreast of developments in the field.  She is very resourceful with a wealth of helpful information. In short, she is brilliant and a delight to work with. I could not recommend her highly enough.

President, ADHD, ASC & LD Belgium

I first met Dr Seonaid Anderson on LinkedIn and I was impressed by her knowledge of Tics and Tourette syndrome.  She regularly shares valuable information and the most recent research.  I felt this knowledge was lacking in our community in Belgium and so I asked Seonaid to present a webinar for our group of parents and teachers, and she graciously agreed.  Our community is more knowledgeable about ADHD, autism, dyslexia and dyspraxia, and I was confident that Seonaid could 'fill in some gaps'. Seonaid's webinar was packed with expert information and inspiring advice and was greatly enjoyed by our audience.  She was extremely helpful and patiently answered all the questions we had. I admire the way she communicated her extensive knowledge to inform our teachers and parents, some of whom were very new to the subject.  One member of our audience described it as '...the best 2 hours of my time that I have spent this week."  I can thoroughly recommend Seonaid as an excellent and passionate speaker on the subject of Tics, Tourette Syndrome and Neurodiversity in general.
