Overcome Your OCD with Online Therapy

Category: OCD Online Therapy | Last updated: February 1st, 2022 | 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.

"The program is very well designed with a great mix of worksheets and webinars to get you started. The therapist has short bits of helpful feedback for nearly everything that is submitted and the 1-on-1 sessions really bring all the therapy together."

"Have had a few sessions now . I was feeling better in short order because I have a therapist that really seems to understand what I was saying which meant she was listening. I feel better because I have someone who is trying to help me and only me during the time we have in our sessions. And she is also very responsive through messages. I am happy knowing that I have someone that is focusing on my issues."

"A great platform that's guides me to take deep dives into various areas, supported with a weekly chat to help me understand what I wrote, provide new perspective and help me through what I need to focus on. A little pricey but so far seems worth it."
