In episode 129 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Dr Jenny Yip. Jenny is a clinical psychologist who specilises in OCD and anxiety. Jenny runs the Renewed freedom center based in Los Angeles.

Dr. Jenny Yip

In this episode I chat with Jenny about her OCD story including postpartum OCD, how OCD fears are unique to each person, exercise and meditation – mindful walks/yoga, the importance of a patients belief in the process of therapy, involving the family in treatment so that the standards in therapy are maintained in the home i.e. no reassurance seeking, parents being role models for living with discomfort i.e. refusing to play into compulsions, reducing the amount we use our phones, and much much more. Hope it helps.
