I have always suffered from OCD and anxiety but never got the right help and tried to deal with it myself. Since having my son it got really bad. I was haunted with worries that my son had been swapped at birth and it took over my life.
With help initially of the midwives I referred myself to Bromley mental health Talk Together Bromley. It was very easy and I had a few assessment phone calls and within a couple of weeks was able to start a 12 week course with a CBT therapist. This was very helpful and I would have struggled to pay for it privately. I was treated one to one for 1 hour a week and had a great therapist who really helped me to understand my OCD and how to tackle it. I was very lucky as I was on a priority list as my son was under I year old. I then referred again after 4 or 5 months and was given another CBT course for 12 weeks.
Now I have all the tools needed to cope and continue to improve and finally enjoy my Son and family life.
