I’m new to this forum and looking for advice. My 12 year old daughter told me she thought she had OCD a couple of months ago. She is now on week 6 of CBT therapy but still struggling. I think being isolated and out of school is giving her so much time to think it has sent her OCD into overdrive. She thinks that bad things will happen to people she loves if she doesn’t tap, switch a switch or count. I’m looking for advice from other parents who have been through this? My daughter has closed up since having therapy, as though she thinks we don’t understand so no point in talking to us but she us opening up to her therapist. Any advice on how best to handle this would be appreciated.
