We have a huge treat for you today, and her name is Kimberly Quinlan. She specializes in anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, and body focused, repetitive behaviors.. She also provides one-on-one treatment, and offers free online courses at the school she founded, The CBT School. And I really recommend that any of you who struggle listen to her podcast, Your Anxiety Toolkit. But today, I’m interviewing her about her new book, The Self-Compassion Workbook for OCD: Lean Into Your Fear, Manage Difficult Emotions and Focus on Recovery.
I read it cover to cover, and have already recommended it to a client of my own who struggles with OCD. I know you’ll love how Kimberly approaches treatment, She stresses that self-compassion is vital due to the frequent presence of intense self-loathing in OCD.
So in this episode, once again sponsored by the great folks at BetterHelp, let’s hear the wisdom of Kimberley Quinlan.

My book entitled Perfectly Hidden Depression has been published and you can order here! Its message is specifically for those with a struggle with strong perfectionism which acts to mask underlying emotional pain. But the many self-help techniques described can be used by everyone who chooses to begin to address emotions long hidden away that are clouding and sabotaging your current life.
