Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour (OCD) is an anxiety related condition that can take many different forms, and be extremely debilitating. You might experience recurring intrusive thoughts, or repetitive compulsions and urges.
If your symptoms are having a negative impact on your everyday life, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help. Combining hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy and neuroscience, we’ll be able to help you effectively and quickly.
Your first step is a free initial consultation. We’ll talk to you about your symptoms, triggers and causes. OCD is a highly individual condition, so we’ll tailor your hypnotherapy to deal with the particular issues you’re struggling with.
In your sessions you’ll be guided gently into hypnosis. This is a state of deeply focused, heightened awareness, and is nothing to worry about. You’ll feel relaxed but aware of what’s going around you, and you’ll be in full control at all times.
While you’re under hypnosis your conscious mind will be relaxed so we can connect with your subconscious, which holds your thoughts, emotions, feelings and beliefs.
OCD can take on many different forms, but all trap you in a self-destructive, vicious circle. Repeating your compulsive behaviour to try and reduce your anxiety means it becomes reinforced, making the circle continue.
Your symptoms are your mind’s high alert response to a perceived threat. This primitive ‘fight or flight’ part of your mind encourages your negative behaviour patterns to keep you safe.
We’ll help you reduce this primitive response by relaxing your subconscious mind, so you feel safe and secure. This will break your cycle of compulsive thinking and urges, and reduce your high anxiety levels.
With our help you’ll be able to regain control of your compulsions, and bring your life back into balance.
