our blog news
what are the basic requirements for an OCD therapist?
We've been lucky enough to be part of a growing community on social media who are highlighting the importance of safety and professional ethics culminating in a recent BBC article* and documentary. The importance of adhering to a professional code starts with adequate qualifications, training and credentials.
We urge everyone to check the credentials of any practitioner or practice offering OCD treatment. OCD is a serious, chronic mental health condition which requires specialist and qualified cognitive behavioural psychotherapy, particularly in the case of intensive treatment. In the UK, CBT with an emphasis on ERP is the evidence-based treatment for OCD according to NICE, which governs all medicine & healthcare. This means that your therapist should be trained in these therapeutical techniques and have knowledge of OCD. Knowledge or training on their own are not sufficient.
who are we?
...qualified & offering you CBT with ERP as the main focus of therapy. Not coaching, hypnotherapy, counselling, psychodynamic or psychoanalytical therapy. NICE guidelines are clear that CBT with ERP is the only evidence-based treatment for OCD
...qualified by means of an advanced diploma, degree or masters in CBT.
commonly occurring types of OCD
Relationship OCD or ROCD, has gained momentum over the last 10 years. This may be attributed to greater awareness of this sub-type or the influence of growing media coverage of relationships. We were the first practice to use this term in 2003 when it there was little awareness of these particular symptoms.
Responsibility OCD, sometimes known as Harm OCD, is the most commonly presenting sub-type in our experience. There are many ways it manifests and this is one example of the highly distressing thoughts and emotions associated with Responsibility OCD.
