online therapy

hi everyone, i just wanted to know if anyone has any good resources that i can go to online to maybe help my head out a little bit, also my psychiatrist told me that CBT is only good for those with compulsions , as i have pure obsessional, and i thought that CBT was good for just obsessional anyway my ocd is affecting me so bad right now that i cant even get out of bed , i cant go to work, and i couldnt even quit drinking and using marijuana, which i recently tried to do, but my ocd drove me to go back to these bad habits, if anyone could please give me some free online therapy sites that would be great.

what should i do?

Re: online therapy

According to the professionals your therapist is incorrect, CBT can be used to treat purely obsessional OCD or that is what I have read. The term is actually an argueable one and many leading experts disagree with the term and say that there is no purely obsessional OCD in that way and with closer inspection compulsions can be found, however they are not the regular physical compulsions, they are more often mental compulsions such as mental checking, asking for reassurance, ruminating etc. I dunno if you suffer with any of these?
