We offer proven, effective advice and support to carers, parents and partners who are likely to feel helpless and unable to cope. OCD is a condition which can involve carers to a large extent and create a complicated system of inter-dependence. Informing and advising carers can be a significant part of the process of recovery for all involved.
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.
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.
My Name is Amy and I have OCD. It was approximately five years of suffering before I was diagnosed. I had no idea what was wrong with me. For me OCD typically was about being clean and tidy and I am not particularly tidy. I never in a million years would have thought what I was suffering chronically from was OCD. I genuinely thought I was a bad person for having such thoughts. I thought I was insane and was going to be locked up forever.....more

WOULD YOU MAKE A GOOD OCD THERAPIST?
Are you currently working with OCD or considering working with this condition in the future?
Are you a therapist, psychiatrist, social worker, mental health nurse, counsellor, support worker, care coordinator or psychologist? We have condensed 15 years of specialist experience to offer a on- and offline module based qualification offering basic to advanced skills and sub-type specific techniques for this client group.
Since medication offers varying and often limited benefits for OCD, effective psychotherapy plays a vital role in recovery outcomes. Additionally, the complex presentation of OCD with multiple sub-types across a matrix of obsessions and compulsions often adversely impacted by co-occurring conditions means that training is vital.
