Consider this perspective: You and the therapist have a battle against OCD that we are waging together. OR
Treatment is not a battle between me and you. When I encourage you to do something, it’s because experience tells us that the exercises that I prescribed will help beat OCD.
If you find yourself procrastinating, I might say, “The time is better spent doing exposures, rather than discussing why you should or should not do them. I would not ask you to do anything that I would not do myself.
I ask you to be fully on board. Please don’t draw lines in the sand.”
You got this. You can be on the other side of OCD and not need my help as much. Go ahead and lean into discomfort. It is worth the short term pain.
