Overcome Your OCD with Online Therapy

Overcome Your OCD with Online Therapy

Category: OCD | Last updated: October 18th, 2018 | Reviewed and approved by:

Most of us have, at some time, felt uncertain about leaving the iron or the stove on and some have even gone home to check. This type of behavior is just normal and doesn't cause any damage or harm in one's life. However, if you have intrusive "what if" thoughts, and your need to perform these behaviors on a regular basis and they interfere with your daily life, then you might be suffering from OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder).

OCD is a condition marked by irrational beliefs (obsessions) and rituals (compulsions). The obsessions are recurrent, unwanted thoughts that are difficult or impossible for you to ignore and cause you anxiety. By performing repetitive, ritualized compulsions, you (temporarily) ease your anxiety. It may, for example, be that you often wash your hands very thoroughly, or check all the locks in your home. You may feel like you "have" to do these rituals. These thoughts and behaviors most likely take up a lot of your time and energy, causing you significant stress which can cause tension in your relationships and other aspects of your life.

Luckily there is hope, even if you have tried to stop your compulsions before and it has not been as successful as you would like. Our therapy for OCD is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). With the help of CBT and your therapist, you will identify what triggers your OCD. You will learn how to face your obsessions and find ways to refrain from ritualizing. Eventually you will be able to face these triggers without the need to perform your normal rituals (like washing your hands several times in a row or checking the lights numerous times). You will discover how to replace these negative thoughts with more realistic ones. Eventually you will be in charge of the thoughts and behaviors that previously have been fueling your OCD, so that you can live life free from obsessions and compulsions.

"I used to wonder why I always felt so angry and resentful. This site taught me how to look at things differently and then alter how I reacted to things. A great therapy toolbox to teach you how to change your perspective on life."

"The good thing about this app is that you go at your own rythm. No pressure. You know you'll always have someone professional to talk to about your problems when you're ready to. But you have to keep in mind that you're the one who has to do the work. Your psychotherapist is here for guidance."

"Online-therapy was my first step into getting therapy. Without it I would not have been able to go to a counselor face to face and ask for help with my problems. Nor would I be striving towards my goals like I am today. I truly thank online-therapy, it's therapists, and its online resources that were there for me in my time of need."

"I really like it"

Rating: [5 out of 5 stars!]

"I haven't done too much with this program but since they offered the free version, I really wanted help with my anger issues and improve my relationship. Even making the step to start the program has made me think about my actions and most importantly why. I can't really speak too much on the program itself but listening to the beginning videos has made me reflect on issues that I have on myself."

"It's been about 3 weeks and I have been very pleased with everything so far.
The worksheets are thought provoking but not complicated. The weekly convos have been really motivating. Very Very happy I'm here.

"I am very happy with everything I’ve experienced so far, especially the feedback my therapist has given me. I love how easy the program is to follow and getting personal feedback on each of the worksheets has been so helpful. It’s a lot of hard work but I’m convinced that it will all be well worth it in the end!"
