I would highly recommend getting a therapist from this site. They are fantastic!
Hi. My therapist is from this site. I was just wondering if my experience is common.
@Anonymous No that’s not supposed to happen. I worked briefly at NOCD and in our training we were told we had to do ERP every session except maybe session 1 for the intake and session 2 for creating the hierarchy.
I don’t know how normal it is with this site per se. I have a NOCD therapist and when I started ERP she did them with me and then eventually I did them on my own. I think it’s a little weird you’ve never done it together.
I have a NOCD therapist. She stayed on the phone with me while I did my first 2 exposures. Prior to starting ERP, my therapist set up my hierarchy and created exposures from there. She actually helped me set up 2 hierarchies. Have you asked your counselor why she isn't teaching you ERP? If you have, I would switch to another counselor.
