Online counselling is found to be as effective as in-person counselling for treating OCD. Counselling, online or in-person, not only helps in reducing OCD symptoms but also makes long-lasting change so that the reduction in symptoms is consistent years after treatment has stopped.
Online counselling makes therapy accessible and can ensure adherence to counselling sessions, which is essential for making long-lasting change in reducing OCD symptoms.
Commitment and consistency to sessions is required for lasting change in reduction of OCD symptoms to happen. According to the severity of OCD symptoms, the person’s response to counseling sessions, and their commitment and consistency of taking sessions, number of sessions would be variable for each person.
