Getting Better

What is CBT?

  • Cognitive behaviour therapy is about how thoughts, feelings and behaviour affect each other.
  • The main aim is to help you to fight back against OCD and not carry out your compulsions (behaviour) and to learn that the anxiety (feelings) will go away eventually.
  • Changing your thoughts will help you to feel less anxious and therefore you will be more able to resist doing what OCD says.
