Having the ability to let a thought pass through your mind without getting attached to it is one of the most frequent human experiences. Thoughts don’t define us like actions do, but when present in an anxious brain, thoughts can become persistent and intrusive. Josh explains what he does to manage his clients' worries when it comes to intrusive thoughts. By exploring "false comfort" vs. "letting go of the thoughts", intrusive thoughts can be viewed as nothing more serious than a song stuck in one’s head.

The book Josh mentions is:

"Needing to Know for Sure: A CBT-Based Guide to Overcoming Compulsive Checking and Reassurance Seeking" by Martin Seif (PhD) & Sally Winston (PsyD)
