Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Yes you most certainly can!
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is widely regarded as the gold standard therapy for OC and the National Institute for Clinical Excellence recommends CBT as an effective treatment for OCD, see here. Cbt is a psychotherapeutic approach that aims to solve problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and cognitions through a goal-oriented, systematic procedure. Treatment is technique driven, brief, direct and time-limited (normally 10-12 sessions). CBT is used in individual therapy as well as group settings, and the techniques are often adapted for self-help applications. Start by taking a look at this self-help booklet here. If after working through that booklet you decide that CBT is an approach that suits you then I can recommend a book titled Coping with OCD: Practical Strategies for Living Well with Obsessive-compulsive Disorder and another book titled Getting Over OCD: A 10-Step Workbook for Taking Back Your Life. You can find both of these books here .If after using a self-help approach you feel you haven't quite made the gains you want then you could also consider consulting with a therapist trained in CBT. Clinical Psychologists often offer CBT and you can locate one by contacting your national psychology association.
