thanks so much... your response is appreciated
CBT helps find and fix irrational thoughts we create in our own minds.
You go through exercises which give you situations and helps you discover how you "negatively" deal with them, then provides ways of adjusting your thought processes.
I have no experience with CBT for OCD, but I'm sure a good therapist would be able to use CBT techniques to help some OCD's.
