Virtual OCD Therapy and Training Weekly Groups Open to Norfolk, the UK and Worldwide!

Wednesday, 2pm to 4pm (UK time)
Friday, 2pm to 4pm (UK time)

Due to the enormous success of our Support Groups, OCD Clinics and ‘Linking to Employment’ Training Groups, we are delighted to announce our two new weekly groups for OCD Therapy and Training.

These training sessions are for people that are willing to take supported steps towards recovery from OCD, anxiety and depression and will have the clear objective of helping and supporting people to begin looking for work, those returning to work having been on long-term sickness leave and those wanting to pursue volunteering opportunities in our community. Significantly, it will also include people who remain at work after being diagnosed with the above but are struggling in the workplace due to their symptoms.

These groups will be for 2 hours duration at a time. The learning modules for these training sessions will include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT), the Conscious versus the Subconscious Mind, Managing Anxiety and Constructive Coping Skills, Assertiveness and Confidence Building to name a few.

The groups will be well managed and will give beneficiaries the opportunity to begin helping themselves, improve their mental wellbeing, increase personal development and move forward in supported stages.

These training sessions will be provided by a fully accredited, Senior Professional UK Registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor who is qualified to present and train in CBT and Mindfulness and is an experienced trainer of 23 years. This is a unique project for our community and we are delighted to be able to offer these weekly groups.

We are based in Norwich, Norfolk. However, our groups are open to all of the UK and Worldwide.

There will be no charge for the above mentioned groups.

Testimonials from some of our beneficiaries...

When I found The Norwich and Norfolk OCD Voluntary Support Group; I was offered support through the Pilot scheme funded by the Big Lottery which offered me 6 free CBT Sessions. I have now made serious progress through the understanding and techniques I have been offered. The group also demonstrates just how many people benefit from the service offered who without it would struggle to find the right support. The Norwich and Norfolk OCD Voluntary Support Group is a success and without it myself and others would be misunderstood and lacking much needed support.

Sue, NR20

I just wanted to express my gratitude for the recent appointments you were able to offer me as part of the Pilot OCD Clinic, it is great that such a service is available to people like myself that can really make the difference in assisting in the recovery of this time consuming and distressing disorder. The CBT sessions provided have given me the strength and courage to attempt these things even when anxiety has taken hold and I have found that by sitting with the anxiety and allowing it to pass or refocus myself it does subside, and in learning these techniques you can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. That a life free of OCD is possible.

Laura, NR20

I was so grateful when you offered me the six free counselling sessions funded by the Big Lottery (I am a pensioner on very limited income). These sessions really helped me to explore and start to understand what had led to my illness developing so severely and also gave me some ideas to learn new and better coping strategies. I really feel this was the beginning of my realisation that maybe, just maybe, I could get better. It makes such a difference being counselled by someone who truly understands the condition.

Prue, NR1
