Just the best

The amount of information and support that I get from this podcast is incredible. Stu has a brilliant way of getting so much from the interviewee and asks in a way that makes it very understandable to the listener. The variety is fantastic and a great way to find help with all the different aspects of OCD, from perinatal OCD to supporting someone in your family that is struggling. I can not recommend this more highly!

Great Show

Been listening to this show for a couple of months now! Has seriously helped me with a few ocd related problems I’ve had for years! Def worth a listen

Rose Olivia ,

Thank you Stuart Ralph!

This podcast gave me so much hope and comfort on my personal and ongoing recovery from ocd and has been life changing... the episodes have contained light bulb moments that I keep returning to when I feel more challenged. The content is incredible and this has been my most valuable tool in my continued recovery post CBT therapy, building my understanding of the disorder, making me feel I’m not alone and giving me confidence to overcome the bully. Thank you Stuart Ralph! Loved meeting you at the OCD UK conference 2018 x
