OCD Hypnosis in Nottinghamshire
OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a condition where a person either experiences obsessive thoughts or alternatively a compulsive activity. When there is an obsessive thought or image that enters the mind it can make the person anxious, fearful and uneasy. When it is a compulsion the person feels as if they need to carry out an activity in order to release the uneasy feelings they are experiencing because of the thought. This compulsion may be carried out a number of times. Just some examples of compulsions are the need to check doors and locks or the need to repeatedly wash their hands. Our Hypnotherapy for OCD in Nottingham is designed to help you to take control of your thoughts and compulsions rather than allowing them to control you.*
There are generally four main categories of OCD which can create a problem and they are:
- Repeated Checking
- Fear of Contamination physically or mentally
- Intrusive Thoughts
The person with the OCD symptoms will feel as if they will need to allow the compulsive thought or behaviour because if they do not there is the possibility that something bad could happen either to them or to their family. Many people are able to carry on with their lives and only experience a few problems because of the OCD but others will find that it can take over their life. Generally it is considered problematic when it interferes with normal day to day functioning and relationship issues.

OCD Therapy Nottingham
Our Hypnotherapy for OCD in Nottingham helps you to recognise that the condition is very treatable and that it can be managed. We may work with you on a stand alone basis or combine the therapy with medication prescibed by your doctor as well as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Generally when our clients attend their initial session we will take a comprehensive case history of the problem so that we can understand exactly how it is impacting you. Our initial sessions will concentrate on getting you to delay the behaviours or thoughts. By working with you to challenge the OCD we are beginning to place you back in control rather than the condition.*
We will also work with you to look on the part of you that experiences the OCD as an unhelpful part which needs to be brought under control. When you and the behaviour or thought are separated it is easier for us to tackle. If necessary we will also work to discover if there is a root cause for your anxieties. If we are able to discover why the problem started in the first place it can be easier to find a new perspective on the problem which does not create such anxiety or unease.*
