You are not your OCD with Sorcha McCaffrey

Season 1, Episode 2,  Mar 12, 2020, 10:26 AM

Chatting with Sorcha felt like a warm hug. Based in Manchester, she is a theatre maker, story teller and, most importantly, snack eater.

Sorcha felt certain she would "go to her grave" before she shared what was going on in her head. Until she was diagnosed age 20, she kept her OCD struggles a secret, fearing she would be ostracised or shunned. Now, she talks about it ALL THE TIME! And we are so glad she does. Drawing on her experience, Sorcha wrote her one woman show 'Ladybones', a story about OCD, dungarees and being weird but not a weirdo. In this episode, she chats to Beth about CBT, writing, living an anti-OCD life and being comfortable with the uncomfortable.
