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 seeking help, I needed more help than the regular medical doctors were giving me. So far this site has helped me to look deep into myself and try figure out the root of my issues. It is not going to be an easy road, dealing with my emotions and such, but the therapist assigned to me has been gracious and very helpful."

"I have really been both surprised and impressed with how much this Online Therapy has helped me. I didn't know what to expect and only enrolled because of the advise of others that I take therapy to show and prove to others that I have changed and am in a new place.
Having said that, I have instead learned so much about myself and have really indeed changed. I have become so much more conscious of my feelings and reactions to stress anger and am much happier for it.
I have also truly enjoyed having discussions with my personal online therapist Jacob and have been extremely impressed with both his knowledge and advise. He made me think about things like I did not before. IN a strange way, although we have never met, I feel like I know him and that he is both a great therapist and friend.
