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.

"Learning to control my anger and my other feelings. I have a very good therapist who is helping me find my way Home. I am very happy with this program I realize I need to take it slow in order to gain the most out of the course and in order to only need to take the course once I need to work the program not just read the stuff and move on but work the program everyday. And that’s the hard part nobody said change was easy."

"Compared to other online therapy services, this one definitely seems to be one of the better made ones. It’s not exactly comparable to in person therapy, but when in-person is not possible I’d definitely recommend giving online-therapy.com a shot."

"Thank you for providing me with tools that actually work to make a difference in my life. Although it's a slow & painful process to change these deep-seeded, self-destructive patterns, I can see the progress. I can see that if I put in the effort, I will be able to manage whatever wanted or unwanted situations appear."

"Before signing up, I've been very attracted to the website and his structure. Now that I have signed up, I enjoyed it even more ! It's interactive, there are a lot of supports through the sessions, the worksheets, the live sessions, the messages with the therapist, and it's cheaper than going to a face to face therapy but with the same results. I recommend Online-Therapy.com at 100% !"

"I’ve never experienced online therapy before so I came in not knowing what to expect. My therapist is very attentive and looks beyond my issues to get to the root, which i like. I’ve noticed a small change in 3 weeks...but it’s more of a change than I’ve seen in months. Very happy I made the choice."

"I've been using this program for about 4 weeks and feel like it has been helping. The worksheets definitely take some deep thinking, so I have struggled with figuring out what to say or how to continue. I have, however, Very Much enjoyed my talks with my therapist, Katrina. She has helped me understand myself and my thoughts a bit better, in turn, helping to manage my anxiety easier."

"I like the worksheets, journal, yoga, activities and the rest. Your messages to me are good but it doesn't feel personal. Maybe when we are on video it will seem more personal. Thank you."
