In episode 43 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Dr Becky Beaton. Becky is the Founder and Director of The Anxiety & Stress Management Institute. Becky is also a co-founder of OCD Georgia, which is an affiliate of the IOCDF. She was also a psychologist on the US TV show Hoarding for 60 episodes.
I talked with Becky about many topics including hoarding, therapies for hoarding, how trauma affects OCD, dealing with anxiety around flying, getting motivated for therapy, the impact of stress on OCD, the importance of sleep, why conscious breathing is important, mindfulness and how to get started with it, medication, nutrition and exercise. Enjoy.
