Mental health questions: I answer questions more quickly if they’re posted publicly. Many people around the world are dealing with the exact same things you’re dealing with right now so if we have these discussions publicly, it can help others find support as well. Please consider asking your question as a comment under a relevant YouTube video or, if you’d like to do it anonymously, comment under a blog post or in the OCD FAQ.
Coaching inquiries: If you haven’t done therapy, I will always tell you to go to a therapist first. I’m not a therapist or a counsellor of any kind. Also, before I work with anybody, I have them do my Mental Fitness 101 course, which you can find in the Brainschool. It covers all of the exercises and concepts I previously would do with clients during the first month of working together. So take advantage of that because it’s cheaper than doing those with me one-on-one, you can do it on your own schedule, and you can ask questions in the course if you run into any challenges or want to know how to modify an exercise to your specific goals.
