Hi Robin,

I have no idea how many treatment sessions are offered at OHSPIC. However, I do know that the outcome somebody else gets from whatever treatment or therapy they are given will have no relation whatsoever to how you respond to your treatment/therapy.

Even if the therapy was identical your outcome depends on where you're at personally, how much change you are willing to tolerate at this time and how much work you are willing to put in.

I think it also depends on the therapist- it might be more to do with a patient's readiness to face their fears, confidence in their ability to do so and the amount of effort they put in to treatment but a therapist's skills, expertise and method also have an impact.

Hi Robin,

We know that OHSPIC can offer tailored treatment like intensive treatment over two weeks, or one hour a week for so many weeks, but the number of sessions someone gets at OHSPIC varies on a case by case basis, so it really depends on the individual. The therapists at Oxford are some of the best in the country at treating OCD, and therapy there will be very much tailored to the individual's problems.

This is right. They usually work out roughly how many sessions a patient might need after the first assessment. I have known some patients be given 10 sessions and that be enough, others 50 sessions. It very much varies, but that's why the assessment is important to understand what the treatment will eventually look like.

@Ashleythank you for that information. My Psychiatrist says he has put in for funding locally but has not yet made a referral to OXHSPIC, he has just spoken to them informally at this stage-would this be the normal way of doing things? Also do you have any idea how long it takes for funding to hopefully be approved? Thanks

Hi Robin,

The referral to OHSPIC is less of an issue as their waiting list is short anyway. The main stumbling block will be the funding locally as your local CCG (if in England) are likely to take a while to respond (1-2 months).  The CCG usually say no, but as your psychiatrist is recommended the referral that does add more weight to the application.  But don't worry, If they do say no that does not mean it should be a flat no and we can try and change that to a yes!  So feel free to come back to us, we can advise you on next steps should we need to.

Fingers crossed they say yes for you :)
