  1. I don’t recommend him at all ! He is very smart on the social media but from my point of view he is a scammer. 5 months ago, I decided to start sessions with him. I paid for the introductory session and for a package for 3 sessions ( £210 + £720). The introductory lasted 18 min, then I had 3 sessions : 12 min30 for the first one, 11 min for the second one and 14 min for the last one ! During these 3 sessions, I asked him about unconditional self acceptance (he speaks a lot about it), he told me that it doesn’t apply to sensorimotor ocd. Then I asked him what I can do, he told me that there is nothing to do. One more thing, he gives sessions through Skype but without the image. I’m french and I don’t speak English totally fluently, it’s very much hard when I can’t see him speaking ! I was very angry then I sent him a message to understand why the sessions were so short and so unhelpful. I asked for a partial refund. He refused and this is his answer : In relation to the session lengths I adjusted those times to suit you and your specific OCd theme.
  2. So true ! I have to remember that... 😊
  3. Great, I will have a look at both of them.
  4. It’s exactly what I’m dealing with ! Yes it’s very hard.
  5. I really understand, I struggle with that too...
  6. This Loaf uses whole grains, nuts, and seeds, no flour, no rising agent and no requires some kneading. It is high in protein. It is incredibly high in fiber. It is gluten-free and vegan. Everything gets soaked for optimal nutrition and digestion and it's delicious ! Makes 1 loaf Ingredients: 1 cup / 135g sunflower seeds ½ cup / 90g flax seeds ½ cup / 65g hazelnuts or almonds 1 ½ cups / 145g rolled oats 2 Tbsp. chia seeds 4 Tbsp. psyllium seed husks (3 Tbsp. if using psyllium husk powder) 1 tsp. fine grain sea salt (add ½ tsp. if using coarse salt) 1 Tbsp. maple syrup (for sugar-free diets, use a pinch of stevia) 3 Tbsp. melted coconut oil or ghee 1 ½ cups / 350ml water Directions: 1. In a flexible, silicon loaf pan combine all dry ingredients, stirring well. Whisk maple syrup, oil and water together in a measuring cup. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix very well until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick (if the dough is too thick to stir, add one or two teaspoons of water until the dough is manageable). Smooth out the top with the back of a spoon. Let sit out on the counter for at least 2 hours, or all day or overnight. To ensure the dough is ready, it should retain its shape even when you pull the sides of the loaf pan away from it it. 2. Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C. 3. Place loaf pan in the oven on the middle rack, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove bread from loaf pan, place it upside down directly on the rack and bake for another 30-40 minutes. Bread is done when it sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool completely before slicing (difficult, but important). 4. Store bread in a tightly sealed container for up to five days. Freezes well too – slice before freezing for quick and easy toast ! 1. There is no substitute for the psyllium husks. It's because THAT is the point of the recipe, as it highlights one way you can use it. For those of you who can’t find psyllium, buy it online. It’s cheap. 2. You can use ground flax seeds instead of whole, but you’re going to need a lot more water as the ground flax seed is highly absorbent. 3. Substituting the oats with quinoa flakes may work, but again, they absorb a lot more water than oats do. Add more water accordingly.
  7. Thanks Ashley, that makes sense. Unfortunately when I’m struggling I become desperate and then very vulnerable and gullible...
  8. I would like to know if someone has ever had therapy on line with Ali Greymond or with Robert Bray from . Thanks !
  9. Hi, i took quietapine for a while without any side effect, it was very helpful when I was anxious and I couldn’t sleep. Take care xxx
  10. I also take sertraline 200mg, For me, it took a very long time to work fully : more than 2 months.
  11. May be you could try to have therapy through Skype if it's difficult to access treatment because of your work ?
  12. It's not true Bruces, I'm very tired too but I believe there is a way out somewhere with the right meds, the right therapy. I have yet to find it but I don't give up. Have faith in you to progress.
  13. Hi Bruces, I have been there a million times. You are in the depths of it at the minute. I promise that the only way is up and you will eventually get out out of the state of desperation. Keep fighting !
