How Can This Therapy Help Me?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common, long-term condition marked by thoughts that make you feel anxious (obsessions) and behaviours you engage in to reduce this anxiety (compulsions).

Thoughts could centre on contamination by germs, or that someone will be harmed because of your negligence. You may see pictures in your mind of violent or sexual images which are completely out of character.

Why Should You Consider Seeking Therapy?

OCD can disable life to such a dramatic extent that depression can also be a problem, as well as damage personal and professional relationships. OCD can be diagnosed if the obsessions and compulsions take up excessive amounts of time, lead to significant distress and interfere with daily functioning in domestic life, study, work, social life, relationships.

Counselling and psychotherapy can be highly successful methods in overcoming obsessive-compulsive disorder. Counselling treatments for OCD involve working through a therapy programme to control the obsessions and associated rituals that maintain the disorder.

THERAPY FOR OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER

“To resist a compulsion with willpower alone is to hold back an avalanche by melting the snow with a candle. It just keeps coming and coming and coming.”
