OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) is widely considered a chronic, debilitating condition. If left unchecked it can critically alter our ability to function and experience life to its fullest. Though the struggles may feel very internal they are often woven into our relationships, work, and school.
While OCD was once considered 'untreatable', ERP (Exposure & Response Prevention), a specific type of CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) has become the 'gold standard' for the evidence-based practice of treating OCD.
With Client motivation for change and effective ERP Therapy, the majority of persons do get significantly better.
