Hi! My name is Aadil and I live in Sydney, Australia.
I am very fortunate to be someone who had sensorimotor OCD and then completely recovered from it. I’ve created this website to share what I can to help others do the same.
I had minor symptoms from sensorimotor OCD for a few years, but it became really bad in 2012, when I could hardly function, and my whole day was spent with terrible anxiety about various bodily sensations. After reading some great articles online and practicing methods of CBT and ERP, I was blessed to have my life go back to normal after several months. I’ve had a couple of small ‘relapses’ along the way where I’ve fallen back into some bad patterns, but they’ve only helped me reinforce the correct ways to beat sensorimotor OCD and stay free of it.
Over the years, I did try to help people with this condition online, and it seems like at least some of my advice worked. After my first ‘relapse’, I realised what I experienced and learnt can be useful to others, and so had the idea of making a small guide to over come this which would be freely available to everyone. However it took me a long time to actually get around to writing and publishing it!
Note I am not an expert nor a clinical psychologist. I just have my own experience and that of helping a few people over the years. I appreciate any feedback and any suggestions you might have. Please visit the support page to see how you can help with feedback or with donations.
Finally, I hope this website is useful, and all the best.
