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 feel better having someone to talk about things with and help me get through the week. I work a lot and cant afford time off to go to appointments etc, and having this at hand 24/7 is so much better in my opinion than a once a week session. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a busy schedule."

"This has been helpful to just providing me with an outlet. I've very much so needed it & didn't realize how much. My therapist has been helpful with providing me with tools to practice & holding me accountable."

"This has been a very personalized experience and productive way to approach therapy. The online format forces me to do the work in thinking through the issues. It also keeps me from trying to get my therapist to "like" me-allowing me to be perhaps a bit more transparent than is comfortable for me in person. All in all, I would highly recommend this platform to anyone needing some help."

"So far I have been working through my issues for a couple of weeks and I have already felt a change in being "aware" of my emotions and being able to understand them, instead of just feeling them and having it take over my entire day. That alone has helped me to manage some of the non-logical mood swings I have been having. And I want to say thank you for being someone I can talk to, since the average person would not be able to handle this constant stress on a daily basis. Truly thank you for giving me someone I can talk to. That alone is already making a difference for me. Thank you."
