Online OCD Counselling

Before undergoing online OCD Counselling, it’s important to understand what OCD is, it is characterised by a wide variety of symptoms. These symptoms include excessively checking the clock, being obsessed with keeping inanimate objects ordered, and having recurring thoughts of abuse. For an accurate diagnosis, your doctor will ask you to describe your symptoms and to undergo a physical examination.

Online Cognitive behavioural therapy for OCD

 

Online Cognitive behavioural therapy for OCD counselling is a treatment method which aims to reduce the symptoms of the disorder by preventing the recurrence of a certain behaviour. Patients with OCD are usually unable to distinguish between normal and obsessional thoughts.

CBT focuses on mindfulness and it can help people with OCD reduce their anxiety. Through focusing on the present moment and letting go of the past, mindfulness can help people with OCD cope with the anxiety they experience. This technique is often used alongside relaxation methods.

Another important part of Online CBT for OCD is exposure and response prevention techniques. Exposure and response prevention techniques involve gradually exposing a person to their obsessions and compulsions, and then teaching them to cope with these feelings. After each session, clients receive homework to practice the techniques. 

 

Online Treatment for OCD

One of the most effective treatments for OCD is exposure and response prevention (ERP). ERP method is used to confront the obsessions by using exposure, leading to a reduction in anxiety and gradually helping them cope with the condition. It is also encouraged to accept uncomfortable feelings that can help towards overcoming the fear.

This therapy is best achieved when the patient leads a healthy lifestyle, gets enough sleep, and has emotional support. It is also important to surround oneself with people who can support the patient. However, this is not always possible for some people. If you feel that you cannot afford a private therapist, consider using the NHS. You can use the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies search tool to find an NHS counselling service.

Treatment for online OCD counselling can also include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). One type of CBT is exposure and response prevention (ERP), which involves exposing people to their obsessions and teaching them how to cope with them.

About 1 in every 50 people suffer from OCD at some point in their lives2, men and women equally. That adds up to over 1 million people in the U.K.
