Hello. I’m Emma Forbes.
I have over 30 years of mental health experience, an accredited CBT therapist since 2007 and a specialist in OCD since 2020.

I offer specialised OCD Therapy in person in Hove, East Sussex and online.

I’ve had a CBT private practice since 2016 and have increasingly been interested in OCD. Many clients come to me having been misunderstood or have not been helped by other therapists.

Just talking about OCD doesn’t work, and if you have OCD, you will need a very specific treatment.

This is your first step towards a better life, towards overcoming your OCD

OCD is a mental health condition that affects about 1 in every 50 people at some point in their lives.

It can affect children and adults regardless of social background, gender or culture.

OCD generally takes the form of thoughts, images, or sensations that our brain misinterprets as threatening. We may know in reality there is no real danger but it feels like there is ! This makes us feel anxious, upset and sometimes shameful, wanting to hide away.
Many people take years to recognise that they have OCD, and seek help. 

Let me help you.

I offer specialised OCD Therapy in person in Hove, East Sussex and online.

How I help you with your OCD

I will help you learn the strategies to deal with your unwanted intrusive thoughts and obsessions to change your relationship with them.

To treat OCD, I use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). I help help you to reduce your symptoms, let go of your OCD behaviours and compulsions and build a toolkit of strategies for the future.

These evidenced based psychological therapies are tailored to meet your individual needs and situation.

Are you ready for the next step in your journey?

My private consulting room is just off Palmeira Square in Hove.

I work Monday, Tuesday & Thursday
9.30am – 7pm

Sessions are 50 min / £95.

I’m registered with AXA & BUPA.
