“As far as I’m aware, we get one shot at life and you want it to be the best possible quality. So for every person, we should be aiming to help them to get as far down the road of being cured as we possibly can.”
For this first episode of Beating BDD I spoke to Rob Willson, a London-based CBT therapist who specialises in researching and treating OCD, BDD and health anxiety.
Rob’s also chair of the world’s first charity exclusively devoted to body dysmorphic disorder, the BDD Foundation, which is also behind this podcast. In an interesting half hour Rob talked about how to recognise and treat the disorder, why he believes in curing not managing it and what to do with all that spare attention when you’re cured.
