Any ideas of good occupations or career paths for mid-career professionals that developed ocd and other anxiety related issues?

Your options are wide open. What are your interests? Your experience? Your willingness to learn -- or be coached, if entering a new career? An ocd diagnosis does not limit your possibilities, especially if you have been working on this ; have it well-managed. A detail-oriented career could even be one in which you excel naturally. Good luck.

That is a very individual issue. I would encourage that person to take a job aptitude test unless they already have a good understanding of which kind of work fullfills them.
