What is a self-help program?

it consists of different sections

it includes information and exercises to help you manage your everyday life and symptoms

Scheduling your time

We recommend that you start by thinking about how and when you want to complete this program. The program will take at least a few days or weeks to complete, depending on how quickly you work through it. It is best to work on it in small sections, and not rush through the exercises.

Try to schedule 10 minutes every day when you will work through the exercises. If this does not seem feasible in your life, you can try to do 30 minutes on one day every week. Think about your current situation and what is realistic when determining how much to work on the program each week. The more specific you make your plan (i.e. choosing an exact date and time), the more it will help you stay on track with the program. Once you have decided your schedule, write it down in your diary and set an alarm to remind yourself to work on the exercises.

Completing the exercises

In addition to the information, the program includes a lot of exercises. Try to complete each exercise, but if you find any of the exercises too difficult, move on to the next one and return to it later when you feel up to it. It is not so important to complete each exercise fully, what is important is that you start.

For many exercises you will be asked to write down your answers on paper. We recommend this method as it is proven to help with learning and will help you to process your thoughts and feelings. If you don’t feel comfortable writing down your answers on paper, you can also write them down digitally on your computer on phone.

“I understood for a long time that this was wrong, I thought and tried to find a clue to stop once and for all. And your program gave a huge boost and confidence, especially when I read that there is a real live person behind every video or photo, it caused me a lot of feelings and emotions, a sense of shame for myself and a great desire to change.”

“I think it's very very good that there's websites like these. They should be promoted everywhere and if I had the chance, I would fund advertising it everywhere. Not alone to let people know other's thoughts with the same problem but to also acknowledge that there are others. If I ever experience any unwanted thoughts, I go to this website.”
