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 have been doing this for 1 month and I honestly feel such a benefit from it. I was sceptical that it would make such a difference but I feel as though I am mentally in a much better place. Just working through the worksheets have helped me realise that I can control my thoughts and I have learned tools that are helping me to live better and think healthier."

"I've never gone to therapy before so I wasn't really sure what to expect with my first therapist (I know sometimes they can be a great fit and other times not so much). However, I enjoy working with my therapist and think there's a really good balance of being supported and having my feelings and experiences validated while also still challenging me to grow and get out of old habits that don't serve me. The worksheets and other tools are all wonderful additions as well."
