Phobias and panic disorders are commonly treated with primary care settings. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a recommended treatment for these disorders but access is limited due to too few therapists, expense and patients' reluctance to enter therapy. Computerised CBT (CCBT) is a self-help option designed to offer patients the potential benefits of CBT with less therapists involvement. The review described here sought to identify studies evaluating the effectiveness of CCBT for phobias and panic disorders.
