I have personal experience of OCD, which I manage well.
Are you struggling with high anxiety, repetitive themes and the need to relieve your anxiety with repetitive actions/thoughts? You may feel worried that you are a paedophile? You may be concerned that you will cause harm to a family member, friend or stranger? Do you spend much time ruminating about being gay/straight/transgender despite your own certainty that you are not? Perhaps you're worried that you don't love your partner, even though you know you do? All of these themes are extremely common with OCD. You are not alone. They, and many other themes, can induce a fear of losing control and concerns around being judged.

I specialise in working with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
If you are someone who is experiencing anxiety which is starting to negatively impact on your life or has done for many years then please do get in touch. It might be struggling to leave the house, having intrusive, unwanted thoughts or images, having to engage in behaviours such as frequent checking, washing or repeating. Often people can feel embarrassed talking about their anxieties or the unwanted behaviours they feel urged to undertake. I hope my years of experience using evidence based approaches with anxiety should help you feel able to discuss and face these anxieties head on, allowing you to lead a healthier, happier life.
