Are you someone who lives with OCD, obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours that make life really stressful? Do you feel as though you are not living the life you truly deserve, feeling stuck because of OCD? Are you someone who is supporting a loved one through OCD or are you a student of mental health and psychology? If any of this is true for you, you have landed on the right page.
I would like to welcome you to this course and congratulate you for taking the first step to learning about OCD. In this course, we will discuss all aspects of OCD. I will take you through a journey of considering what is OCD, how and why it develops, as well as the psychological mechanisms that underlie and maintain the persistence of OCD. We will also be discussing different treatment options available for people who may be struggling with OCD, as well as going through specific example techniques that we can consider its application.
This course is useful for people who want to learn about OCD from an educational standpoint, as well as people who may be struggling with this difficulty themselves or have a friend or family member who is struggling and wishes to support them. With this course, as all of my other courses, I hope that we can enter with an open mind, embracing loving kindness as well as holding a compassionate position so we can better understand mental health difficulties and support ourselves to live better lives.

Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist
10 Years Experience
I work with adults and adolescents who experience anxiety, panic, low mood, low self-esteem, as well as trauma, psychosis, and difficulties with relationships. I also complete neuropsychology assessments and compile reports for people who are suspected to have acquired brain injury or who may be worried about certain cognitive deficits, like memory or attention-based problems.
Given people are complex and each person is unique, I believe it is important to see each person’s individuality and work with them in a collaborative way to meet their needs and goals. I also feel it is vital to ensure that a warm and safe space is created where we develop a sense of trust and we feel able to explore the person’s experiences. I draw upon a number of therapeutic approaches to help people including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I use these approaches flexibly to ensure that we are working on the problem in the most helpful way.
Finally, I am conversational in Arabic and I am aware of different cultural backgrounds and values held particularly in Middle Eastern and Asian societies. I appreciate that such backgrounds, beliefs, and values may also add another dynamic to therapy and I would like to work using this in the most meaningful way possible.
