Getting Better

CBT - how does it work?

  • In cognitive behaviour therapy, the first thing to learn is how to measure your anxiety.
  • The next thing to learn is to ‘expose’ yourself (face up) to the thing that makes you feel anxious...
  • ...without making the ‘response’ (ritual) that OCD wants you to.
