Hi everyone!

Last Saturday I got to take part in the OCD Gamechangers event in London. It was amazing. The picture above is us in the backstage room waiting to go on. I'm with the wonderful Chrissie Hodges, Stuart Ralph and Matt Shoobridge - all three are totally amazin...

It's just dawned on me that I haven't written about a project I’ve been working on for a while. One that is pretty much finished - only in need of maintaining - and one which has been central to my recovery. This is a post about some of the changes I’ve made to my home...

Hi there!

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Stuart Ralph of The OCD Stories. 

We had a great chat and covered loads of different subjects so even though my story focusses on Perinatal OCD there will be lots of interesting and helpful snippets for anyo...

*** Okay, this is my brain dump post. I haven't done the final edit on it and I don't think I'm going to. It's here for anyone who needs a little extra information on my story or if you have any questions from reading my original post, this might answer them.

You might be wondering what is was she asked me. It wasn’t a difficult question about how my...

I want to continue as I mean to go on with these blogs and talk about what helps the most. Let’s get as many people as possible talking about OCD, spreading awareness about the disorder, and realising just how much help there is out there for us, if we know how to...

* This is the first post I haven't edited... and then re-edited. It's quite a raw piece, I just sat and wrote it straight up and I'd like the writing to reflect that. Please forgive the odd grammatical error or repetition*

There was a time when my OCD raged so out...

***I’d just like to put in at the start of this piece that if you’d asked me to give my OCD a persona or form in the days before I’d gone through any treatment, I have done one of two things. I’d have either wandered away, muttering crossly under my breath about how yo...
