Presentation subject

A fundamental requirement of getting rid of OCD is being able to confront your fears. In the end, there is no alternative to doing this in OCD. When OCD takes over you life, you have to take it back, and that always means dealing with difficult situations. In this talk Paul will consider how to approach this issue and what can be done to make it possible, and sometimes a bit easier. His bottom line is that it is always worth it!
