The national OCD charity, run by and for people with lived experience of OCD
Hello, my name is Kirstie and I am the Online Groups Manager for OCD-UK. I was diagnosed with OCD at 18 which is when I discovered OCD-UK whilst looking for support. I am mostly recovered from OCD after receiving CBT and want to support and promote recovery to people with OCD and their family/friends.
I have previously been involved with the charity in a voluntary capacity since 2004. My roles have included telephone and email support, administrator for the OCD-UK forums, organising and hosting the OCD-UK Glasgow conference in 2017, fundraising and facilitating the Edinburgh OCD-UK support group for 2 years.
I am excited to have been asked to undertake the role of OCD-UK’s Online Groups Manager which involves leading the new OCD zoom support group project.
The difference we make…
I am really grateful for the support your charity has given me. I attend one of the online zoom groups. Kirstie and Gemma are the group leaders and do a wonderful job supporting every member.Ka
