Dennis Keefe

Registered Psychotherapist, M.A.
I like to help clients let go of the need to control everything. Often the cost of preventing bad things from happening is greater than the cost of the bad things actually happening. I often use CBT to do structured work beginning with psychoeduction particularly around the causes of OCD and what is maintaining it. Then an examination of unhelpful thoughts specifically targeting the client's thoughts about the intrusive thoughts. Often followed by Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) where the client is aided in reducing compulsive behaviour.

OCD is a self taught coping strategy (ex. Only If I check the door 3 times, it’s closed). Understanding the root cause of the anxiety that’s fuelling the behaviour is transformative because it brings awareness to the situation.

Registered Psychotherapist, MA, RP
When you experience unwanted or intrusive thoughts that trigger anxiety, disgust, guilt or shame, you might be trying to distract yourself to avoid the thought, try to explore/analyze the thought, or do things to make the thought go away or at least quiet them down even if just for a moment. However, they just keep coming back. If unwanted thoughts are taking over your life, therapy can help you to work on reclaiming your mind and life.

OCD

Dr. Kim Edwards

Psychologist, C.Psych.
MindFit offers a 10-12 weekly OCD-Busters program, personalized to your strengths and challenges, and grounded in gold standard evidence-based approaches which include cognitive-behavioural therapy and exposure and response prevention. More specifically, you and your clinician would talk more about what OCD is, discuss how thoughts-feelings-and behaviours are related/impact anxiety, list your feared situations, teach you strategies to manage your anxiety, and then engage in step-wise and gradual behavioral experiments to help you face your fears. Many of the coaches at MindFit have been trained specifically in OCD treatment and receive ongoing consultation and/or supervision. It's important to note that OCD is not your fault! You didn’t do anything wrong to develop OCD. It’s not a matter of choice anymore than asthma or diabetes. It’s an illness and it can’t be cured through willpower. However, with the help of a professional, you can participate in effective “workout programs” (treatment plans) to regain control of your life.
