Hypnotherapy OCD

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is diagnosed when obsessions and compulsions:

On average OCD first begins to affect men during late adolescence and women during their early twenties. People often go undiagnosed for years, waiting an average of 10–15 years between symptoms developing and seeking help. Most people with OCD know that their thoughts and behaviour are irrational, but feel completely incapable of stopping them. The symptoms of OCD come and go if left untreated with the severity increasing during times of stress. OCD can take over your life if left unchallenged

Everyone experiences intrusive thoughts sometimes, popping into your mind without any warning. People with OCD have an inflated sense of responsibility to prevent harm and overestimate the perceived threat that an intrusive thought signifies. These thoughts are misinterpreted as important and significant and possibly leading to catastrophic consequences. Repeated misinterpretation of these thoughts leads to obsessions developing. Because intrusive thoughts are so distressing, compulsive behaviour is used to try to resist, block or neutralise them, fearing that not completing a particular behaviour will cause harm.  This helps drive the compulsive behaviours - you often feel ultimately responsible for trying to prevent bad things happening or creating bad luck

BWRT® has become the most effective way I have worked successfully with clients experiencing OCD. All your coping strategies such as arranging, washing, checking, writing lists, tapping, touching, repeating, or perhaps cleaning, have come about in the first place to make you feel safer and less anxious. In fact they do the exact opposite: they make you feel unsafe and scared. Even if they provide temporary relief from anxiety, all these rituals make the meaning attached to those intrusive thoughts, images, urges and doubts feel even stronger, so it becomes necessary to keep doing the rituals continuously. BWRT ® can help you change these old patterns quickly and effectively. Alternatively I can use hypnotherapy to help you. Together, we will decide on the best approach for you
