You guys, you are so appreciated by me! 

I can't wait to tell you about the most recent Podcast episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit!  

When it comes to interviewing people for Your Anxiety Toolkit podcast, I ADORE bringing on people I admire, who think outside the box and who are are leaders in our field of Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Depression and Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRB'S),  Stuart Ralph definitely checks off ALL these criteria.  

Stuart Ralph is the host of The OCD Stories Podcast.  Check it out HERE.  It is such an amazing resource! 

In this podcast episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit, I asked Stuart to share with us some of what he has learned interviewing some of the most influential and inspiring psychotherapists and researchers in the anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder field.   

During our interview together, Stuart shared what he thought would be the most helpful tools for managing anxiety, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and other Mental Health struggles. 

Here are some of his SUPER important takeaways.

  • Stuart told us a story of how Steven Hayes (author of  Get out of Your Mind and Into Your Life) told Stuart, "You are the Lucky Ones!"
  • Reid Wilson shared that when it comes to anxiety, "The Content of your worries is trash".
  • Professor Paul Gilbert (Founder of Compassion Focused Treatment and author of the book, The Compassionate Mind) discussed how the application of Self-Compassion can help us with general well-being and our mental health recovery (especially for those who experience anxiety, OCD, and depression).

Stuart left us with this big piece of wisdom;

"We all need love and self-care, and if we give ourselves huge doses of that we can move towards recovery".

It was an honor having Stuart on Your Anxiety Toolkit Podcast.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
