    That's incorrect. It has helped me and many others on here alone. And we aren't talking about structured therapy but learning it ourselves.

    I asked them if it was group based the person on the phone had little idea. I am disappointed if it is group based and I doubt I would want to go. I was hoping for one to one CBT which is did privately. It shows the lack of resources on my area if it is group based. Money is tight right now so canít instantly book more private CBT but I may have to consider in a few months going private again. I feel let down by the NHS near me I once did have one to one seasons but when I was 16. Itís very disappointing if I have to spend more money.
    Please clarify this, phil. I read the above as you declined a relaxation course, they accepted that and now sent you a letter for group CBT.

    To be fair, I would also instantly decline group therapy, yet could talk online all day... I donít think they are the same by all means (and I go to cbt)

    Update

    I have had a reduction in anxiety and panic past few days by reading appropriate books and doing videos to help.

    Naturally as the anxiety pulls back the ocd thoughts returned like the birthday night out/sharing it on social media, worries about not adding some people on social media and also the wheelie bin in my front garden. I did receive advice on these but sadly they keep popping back up.

    So what I have learned is with anxiety the ocd is less prominent and when the anxiety is low the ocd is high. It’s a bit of a cycle so what I need is when the anxiety is beaten or is low, find a way for the ocd to vanish if this was to happen I would have little anxiety or obsessive behaviour. I have discussed stuff like exposure therapy is not really a good solution for me. I have beaten ocd in the past but my anxiety has never been fully low for about 2 years now. I have accepted I won’t be moving house anytime soon the property market will prob take a hit anyway with the virus. So the trigger was moving house twice that set my ocd to a new level.

    I need some key help in dealing with the obsessional thoughts when I think the garden is contaminated logically I just can’t go out and rub my fingers in the garden. I would settle for no longer seeing it as a threat or a worry on my mind I mean people without ocd don’t really wanna rub there fingers in dirt. So any advice would be grateful..

    Also in CBT terms my GP said mental health takes a back seat, psychiatrists have been redeployed to the virus in my area which is worrying. The CBT is likely canned anyway I could go private again only when the virus is over. So I have to relay on books I’m afraid

    Re: CBT update

    I also need to be realistic about my goals without anxiety I would drive, fly round the world, perhaps work as a manager, post stuff on social media without feeling anxiety, visit the cinema more, learn a new skill or go to college but I have anxiety so I have been weighing up if I need to put myself under this pressure if I need to do all these goals. I heard anxiety is just a sensation so it’s only that feeling of going mad or panic stopping me. I’m not sure I want to take risks flying or driving and putting myself more at risk with statistics perhaps I could fly once in a blue moon to reduce my anxiety but limit it?

    Course but when it’s over I have to figure out how I can fly to New York it even short haul. You can do an online course but I grudge spending the cash perhaps eventually I will give it a go?

    Re: CBT update

    I got a letter from the doctors saying the psychiatrist will no longer be seeing me no idea how long this is for but it seems to go with what they are saying mental health takes a back seat which I think is pretty bad. I wonder if others are also no longer getting appointments or cbt ect?
