As I speak with colleagues about the challenges of working with people with OCD, the consensus is clear - each and every one of them tell me that OCD is a condition they try to keep away from because working with it is hard.  It does not have to be that way. I've put together this workshop to support you through learning and expanding on your skills to work with this condition.

After nearly 10 years of working with people with OCD, you'd think I'd be sick of it by now - but I'm not - In fact, I think I become more passionate about it the longer I work with this population. Working with this population is challenging, but when you're walking with clients through their journey up the mountain of OCD - the view from the top is that much sweeter!

So, join us for this workshop as we learn to walk up the mountain together.  In the workshop you'll watch videos, be given links to resources, as well as be given a session outline and client ready handouts that have been tried and tested to use in treatment. You will also be granted access to my OCD Clinician peer support group that has been set up on Facebook.  If you want in, register for the workshop and I'll see you on the day!
