"So far the course has been quite informative and the information has been presented very well. This course will help anyone in the midst of the agonizing struggle that is HOCD. Even though the information and tools for taking action are not entirely new to me (since I have come across many resources and have read many articles before this website was found), the presentation and reinforcement of critically important concepts alone make the investment in this course worthwhile and would be especially valuable to anyone who has just found out about this condition (I certainly wish I had come across it 12 months ago!). I thank Dr. Elaine Ryan for sharing her expertise and guidance on the subject of OCD."

Hi Dr. Ryan,
I don't think I can thank you enough for your fantastic – and life changing – courses. And at such an affordable price. I first signed up for the HOCD course and mid-way I took heed of your recommendation of completing the anxiety master class.
I finished it the other day and all I can say is my life has changed. I am understanding my anxiety (even outside of HOCD) a lot more. "Oh, I'm reacting this way because I'm fortune telling", "This bothers me only because I'm discounting the positive". I've had anxiety all my life but always thought I was just a person who was a pessimist. Now I know it's just negative bias.
My HOCD has decreased, though I know I have a bit to go. But I'm glad to have found your online courses.
You've really helped me see that my intrusive thoughts, anxieties, and HOCD are just thoughts and nothing to be afraid of.
Once again, thank you!
|The "Find Out Yourself" Experiment was great! I changed my compulsions with it and now I know, that these thoughts make it more worse. At the moment I don't think about my thoughts when the Thought pops in my Head "Oh, there's is an attractive guy - am i Gay?" I try to let it flow and don't do any form of research on it.

Frequently Asked Questions
Homosexual OCD, although not a formal diagnosis, is a problem for many people. You can spend your time obsessing about your sexuality. This is not the same as someone who is sure about their sexuality and has concerns around their identity.
Who makes the courses?
My name is Elaine and I am a psychologist who also had anxiety and panic.
How the courses work
All my courses are based on the work that I do in private practice and use scientific models of therapy that work well with online courses
