The OCD Camp springs from a belief that nature, and meeting others with OCD can be a valuable part of recovery, and mental well-being. The idea for the first UK OCD camp was cemented when Stuart interviewed therapist Pete Weiss on The OCD Stories podcast. Pete was part of the BBC documentary “Extreme OCD Camp” which aired in 2013. During the interview Pete offered to help Stuart if he ever decided to run a UK camp. Nearly three years on, Pete was true to his word. As they say, the rest is history. Below is a podcast where I interviewed the campers who took part in the 2018 camp with Pete.

2019 – with therapist Ashley Annestedt
2020 – To be confirmed
The OCD Stories is solely focused on recovery. Camping, being in nature and being around others who want to improve is at the heart of this camp, and this camp is at the heart of The OCD Stories mission.
Listen to what the 2018 campers had to say:
Stuart founded The OCD Stories in 2015 to improve the lives of those with OCD. Stuart is currently training to be a child and adolescent therapist in London.
