In episode 46 of The OCD Stories podcast I was interviewed by Chetna of The East Bay Behavior Therapy Center. Chetna asked me some great questions about recovery, OCD, what the behind the scenes of The OCD Stories looks like and motivation.

East Bay Behavior Therapy Center

Correction: In the episode I talk about becoming a CBT therapist in the UK. I was not completely accurate. You can become a CBT therapist without becoming a councellor first – check out the BABCP website. 

Chetna asked me about many topics, including what a day in life of me looks like, motivation in OCD recovery, rOCD advice, telling a partner about OCD, meditation, what motivates me, service to others, detaching from work for positive mental health and cure or recovery. Enjoy.

    • Hi Sam, I’ve heard many people with that worry. If you are seeing Dr Penzel, I recommend asking him as he is a brilliant therapist and will be able to help.
