Background: The present paper describes the cognitive-behavioural approach evolved and adapted to treat survivors of the London bombings experiencing fear and avoidance of public transport (travel phobia). Method: Treatment outcomes for a consecutive case series (N = 11) are reported. Results: All individuals who completed treatment (N = 10) had returned to their pre-bombing use of transport and reported minimal symptoms. Conclusions: The need for appropriately tailored treatment based on differential diagnosis and formulation and the importance of incorporating skills for treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder are discussed.
