In episode 320 I chat with Alexandra Reynolds who has kindly agreed to share her OCD story with us.
We discuss her story, themes: contamination, relationship, health and taboo, we talk about her experiences of exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP), we discuss complex trauma (cPTSD) and doing a separate trauma therapy for it, her attachment style, how cPTSD affected her relationships, her attachment style in her relationship and working through this, disassociating in therapy, postpartum OCD, her experience of group therapy, and much more. Hope it helps.
