  • Have struggled with OCD for so many years- I’m a 37 y/o old male and it’s finally started to impact my career, so I needed to get better. You all have helped me so much by being open and vulnerable. Makes me feel like I am not crazy, and I am not alone.



  • Thank you everyone for your stories, rants and sharing your pain it has helped me in not alienating myself, and I'm sorry we have to go through this.



  • For years I thought I was the only one feeling the way I did - I felt like a freak. Understanding the basics of OCD and why I feel what I feel was helpful and techniques shared were quite actionable.

What happens in a group session?

While the format can vary as per topic, here’s a flow that most sessions follow

Check In. Participants check-in with each others' feelings and answer the prompt given by the facilitator if any.

Conversation. Your facilitator will guide the group in a free-flowing conversation—with the goal of sharing openly, talking honestly, and deep emotional connection.

Check Out. Participants share what they're taking away from the session.

What am I going to get out of this?

Participants say that they feel heard, understood, more in control, and a feeling that you’ve got people rooting for you. By talking about your emotions and what's going on in your life, you'll realise that you're not alone and get ideas for how to improve your situation.
