Health Anxiety and the links to OCD

Presentation subject

This session will cover the nature of health anxiety and how it can present similarly to OCD behaviours as well as ways to manage it and how to get support.
About the speaker
Niamh started as a volunteer on the helpline for Anxiety UK. She found the experience rewarding so was keen to get involved more to contribute to the wonderful work done at the organisation. She joined the staff team in March 2020 to manage the helpline as well as coordinating current partnerships and developing relationships with new partners.

We know that right now we are all living through difficult times financially, and it’s for that reason we have chosen to make our conference free access this year. Whilst the conference is free access, the charity does still have to pay Zoom and Vimeo license fees which power our online conference, so if you are in a position to make a donation of any amount, we would be incredibly grateful. It is only through donations, and the participation of our supporters fundraising activities that OCD-UK can survive, so we remain incredibly grateful for your consideration.
