Case study - OCD

Marta recently relocated so her husband could get work. She has just had a new baby and is now away from the support of her mother and sister. She is struggling to cope and the natural anxieties of a young mother about the health and cleanliness of her baby are turning into mild OCD  

Outcome A

Her OCD gets worse. Her GP has tried to help but Marta can't read very well in English and there is a waiting list for treatment from a psychological wellbeing practitioner. Eventually she ends up hardly ever managing to change a nappy. The health visitor is worried and calls in social services. The evidence of neglect seems clear...

Outcome B

Her GP prescribes TPT for OCD. She finds it comforting to listen to the therapy in her own language, rapidly learns about her anxieties and soon begins to cope.

Case study - Agoraphobia

Bill was made redundant two years ago at 45 and has been unable to find work. His wife, Joan, now works long hours to help make ends meet. Bill is trying to adapt to cooking and housework. A special challenge is the supermarket shopping: Bill feels conspicuous and out of place, he is worried about money and he can never decide what to buy. He has had several panic attacks in the supermarket and Joan has persuaded him to go to his GP.

Outcome A

IAPT is suggested but Bill is ambivalent about talking to a therapist and feels too anxious to attend an appointment so the GP reluctantly prescribes an anxiolytic drug. It works for a while but then the GP is persuaded to increase the dose...

Outcome B

The GP has just learnt about the TPT module for agoraphobia and thinks it would be helpful. Bill is motivated to access a confidential therapeutic resource which is completely under his control. He responds well and the domestic stress is relieved.
