In episode 72 I interview Olivia Bamber from the charity OCD Action. Olivia is the media and communications officer for the charity.

Olivia Bamber OCD Action

I had a good chat with Olivia. She shared her OCD story, and her experiences on the BBC documentary Extreme OCD Camp. We discussed the importance of putting effort into therapy, the services the charity offers: phone/email support, the buddy program etc. Olivia talked about fundraising for the charity and not letting OCD hold you back. Hope it helps!
