Why Calmerry is a top choice for online OCD therapy

I've made a commitment this year to…
I've made a commitment this year to become the better me. And, as part of that commitment, I decided to try out therapy for the first time. Honestly? I am a bit skeptical when people online talk about something so much, always feels like it's just hype and too good to be true. But therapy, and calmery specificaly, exceeded all my expectations! It's very fun and simple to use, I can chat and zoom with my therapist and there are also a lot of things I can do between the sessions! The way to track progress is a fun thing, almost like Duolingo streaks lol! I don't have much to compare to, but Calmery has been a great and easy experience for a newcomer into therapy.

Last few months have been really tough…
Last few months have been really tough to the point where I started feeling like I’m going to have a heart attack. The good news is that I’m physically healthy. The bad one is that it seems like I have a serious case of anxiety that I need to work on. I’ve never been to therapy before, so decided that online would be a nice middlepoint, that won’t take as much of time. Reviews and pricing pointed me into Calmerry’s direction, and I’m liking what I see so far. Matching process has been good, they’ve found me a therapist that specializes in anxiety. Had only one video session so far but video and chat combo really makes me feel like my therapist is always there for me.

Great Customer Service
Upon deciding that online therapy was not the right fit for me, I contacted customer support, and the customer service team was very helpful and responsive. They offered many options and were very understanding of my situation.

Pros: helpful professionals - Cons: app issues and time difference difficulties
The professionals are very helpful however I do think that app issues and time difference can hinder the process. One app issue I had was I would receive a notification that I received a message one minute ago (from my phone notifications) but when I would go to the app, it would actually be from 30 minutes ago. Receiving notifications 30 minutes late can add up to when professionals are available 5 hours per day, five days out of the week. Also, for any new people I would advise making sure you talk with a professional in your time zone. Personally, having a four hour time difference was difficult for me.

Sometimes a new therapist is all it takes
To give a quick overview, I am doing great, but the beginning of my journey was not so. The opportunity to change therapists was what saved the experience for me!My first therapist seemed uninterested and basically just sympathized with my hurt and did not give any sort of feedback for improving. When I spoke about the hardships within my relationship, he was quick to advice that I leave even if it hurts.. no feedback on why my mindset was this way, how to think straight nor how to cope with my feelings, I felt more defeated/judged when he started giving me a sermon as soon as he heard that I was religious as I was explaining my upbringing without me asking for religious advice. He verbalized that my depression was a spiritual war within me and that I was living in sin and therefore the enemy was attacking me… at was at a loss and in an even worse spot.I was on the verge of canceling when I was offered a change of therapist which completely changed the course of my journey. Natalia was attentive to my struggles, took time to listen and explain many new concepts to help me understand where my difficulties and thoughts where stemming from, I learned things about myself that I did not even realize were there since my childhood and how detrimental they have been within my life relationships! She created a concrete plan and followed up with me consistently throughout the whole time. I felt cared for, acknowledged, supported even when it was difficult for me to accept certain realities within me that I needed to change, and most importantly more confident/guided with the resources to improve as a person through this new understanding. I highly admire Natalia’s genuineness, integrity, and dedication to each meeting. I could see she was taking the time to read, understand every conversation through the feedback she gave. I really have no words but gratitude!

Frequently asked questions

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Yes, OCD can be effectively treated through online therapy. Online platforms like Calmerry provide access to licensed therapists trained in evidence-based techniques tailored to treating OCD. The convenience and accessibility of online therapy can also benefit individuals with OCD, allowing them to receive consistent treatment from the comfort of their environment. Studies have shown that online therapy can produce results comparable to traditional in-person therapy for many individuals with OCD.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

In OCD online therapy, several evidence-based techniques are commonly employed:

  1. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This approach helps individuals recognize and challenge their obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors, replacing them with healthier coping mechanisms.
  2. Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP): A subtype of CBT, ERP involves gradually exposing individuals to their OCD triggers while teaching them to resist performing the associated compulsion.
  3. Mindfulness and Relaxation Techniques: These methods help individuals focus on the present moment and reduce anxiety, which can be beneficial in managing OCD symptoms.
  4. Habit Reversal Training: Used for certain types of OCD, this technique helps individuals recognize the urge to perform a compulsion and replace it with a neutral action.
Reading Time: < 1 minute

Research indicates that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy for many individuals with OCD. The key is consistent engagement with the therapeutic process and working with a therapist trained in OCD treatment. The convenience and flexibility of online therapy can also lead to more consistent sessions, which can benefit treatment outcomes.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Exposure therapy, specifically Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), is a leading evidence-based treatment for OCD. It involves intentionally exposing individuals to situations or thoughts that trigger their obsessions (the “exposure”) and then preventing them from performing their usual compulsive behaviors (the “response prevention”). Over time, this process helps reduce the anxiety associated with the obsessions and decreases the urge to perform compulsions.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The most widely recognized and effective therapy for OCD is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), particularly its subtype, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). These techniques have been extensively researched and have significantly reduced OCD symptoms. However, the best therapy can vary based on individual needs, and it’s essential to work with a therapist to determine the most suitable approach.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The duration of OCD online therapy can vary based on the individual’s needs, symptoms’ severity, and treatment progress. Some individuals may benefit from short-term therapy spanning a few months, while others might require longer-term therapy lasting a year or more. Regular assessments with the therapist can help determine the optimal duration of treatment.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Yes, OCD online therapy can be combined with medication. Sometimes, a combination of therapy and medication, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), can be more effective than either treatment alone. It’s essential to consult a psychiatrist or primary care provider to determine the best medication regimen and coordinate care with the online therapist.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Starting OCD online therapy is straightforward. In Calmerry’s case, the process would look as follows:

  1. After signing up, complete a short survey about your needs and concerns. 
  2. Once you complete your survey and activate the subscription, we will match you with the best-fit counselor based on your input. This process usually takes up to an hour. 
  3. When you are eventually matched, you and your counselor will discuss your hopes and expectations in more detail. This intake session will help your counselor devise a personalized therapy plan.
  4. After that first meeting, it’s all about consistent engagement with sessions and assigned tasks until you achieve the desired results.
