Can Hypnotherapy help with OCD?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD is a disorder in which people have obsessive recurring thoughts and compulsive and often repetitive behaviours.

OCD can affect anyone. It can be a very distressing and time-consuming disorder which has a significant negative effect on the sufferer. But it can be treated and kept under control.

It is often not possible or necessary to pinpoint the cause of OCD. The brain thinks that the obsessions and compulsions are keeping the sufferer safe. For example, a sufferer may feel compelled to check and recheck electricity switches to make sure a fire doesn’t start, and they may have to check a certain number of times. Excessive handwashing and hygiene are common types of OCD. Sometimes seemingly irrelevant objects have to be placed in certain and precise ways. OCD can manifest itself in any number of ways.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help to overcome issues associated with OCD, issues that may have been a daily struggle for years. I can give you the tools and knowledge you need to be able to move forward feeling positive. Having a good understanding of why your brain does what it does helps to reduce anxiety around the issues. Improving sleep and boosting confidence can help to build the ability and strength needed to overcome obsessive thoughts and compulsions whenever they come up.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can calm your mind and give you back control of your life.
