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 really enjoyed the worksheets, they took me into really thinking about the root of my problems and encouraged me to write down things I didnt want to say out loud. The process was easy to follow and the videos help to hear it and not just read it"

"The CBT guide at Online Therapy has been very helpful. I was able to have a few key revelations about my current situation while working on the content provided.
Self change does take a lot of work. You can't just watch the videos and have your life changed.
But if you're willing to put in the work this site can be an excellent resource.

"I’ve been talking with Julie for a couple of weeks now and along with this doing the worksheets. With these two things and the type of therapy itself, I feel like I can almost breath more clearly and reaching those cathartic moments with Julie is starting to beneficially impact my personal views. Additionally, being to lay my thoughts out and have a progressive plan of working through triggers and problems: first helps to have a log of what I thought and second the examples help to fill out the sections as accurately as possible.

Since, doing therapy and a session with Julie I’ve been raving to my sister and bringing it up in conversation to try this method of therapy.

"This program is astounding. It does a great job of walking you through CBT and it helped that it was on paper, for someone like me who has a hard time focusing on their thoughts. I have tried in person counseling many times which was not as helpful for me. I really notice a difference in the way I think now and other's around me notice too. If you are up for putting in the work and completing the worksheets honestly, this program will be so helpful!"
