In this Youtube video I talk to kids and teens about how OCD doesn’t have to be a fear and can be a feeling instead.

OCD doesn’t have to be about fear. There are many OCD themes that center around a feeling. These can be feelings of disgust, grossness, not just right or a feeling of incompleteness to name a few. 

The core fear is that these uncomfortable feelings may never go away. We tackle these feelings the same way we tackle any other OCD theme, by learning how to sit in the discomfort they bring.

In this week’s Youtube video I talk to kids and teens about how OCD doesn’t have to be a fear and can be a feeling instead.
