In episode 195 of The OCD Stories podcast I chat with Jon Hershfield and Shala Nicely. Jon and Shala are both therapists who specialise in OCD. They co-wrote a book called “Everyday mindfulness for OCD: Tips, Tricks, and Skills for Living Joyfully”. 

Everyday mindfulness for OCD

In this episode I chat with Jon and Shala about noticing when your mind wanders off, returning to your anchor, noticing the minds story, being self compassionate when being mindful or meditating, common “mistakes” when meditating, simple ways to meditate, and much much more. Hope it helps.

  1. Hey! Could you please upload the podcasts on YouTube which aren’t available there, because on YouTube there are auto-generated subtitles which help me understand what you guys are saying. I’m not a native speaker so I don’t understand most of the stuff you guys say on the podcast without subtitles. So, I would really appreciate it, if you could do that.

    • Hi thanks for your comment. At the moment we can’t add the older ones to Youtube. You can still get them all on podcast apps and spotify, if that helps. We will try to upload the older ones to youtube in the future.

      Thanks for listening,
