Hypnotherapy For Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

We all experience minor obsessions and compulsions from time to time, sometimes it's just seen as our quirky behaviour. But, when you're living with OCD, your obsessions and compulsions have a big impact on how you live your life.

Repeating compulsions take a lot of time and you may find yourself avoiding events and situations that trigger your OCD, the obsessive thoughts make it hard to focus and concentrate, so it affects your career, social life and relationships. You may even feel isolated and ashamed of your obsessive thoughts which all leads to stress and anxiety symptoms. The good news is hypnotherapy can help you reduce the anxiety and thoughts which commands your OCD so you can feel calm and in control again.

What is OCD?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a term often mistakenly used to describe a wide range of obsessive and compulsive thoughts and behaviours, for example, liking all our clothes ordered precisely in the wardrobe, or washing our hands frequently. In true OCD, these thoughts and behaviours are so persistent and intrusive that they interfere with our ability to go about daily life. This can have a profound and distressing effect on our wellbeing. OCD can arise through sudden or prolonged trauma, or through ongoing high levels of stress or anxiety. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help OCD by reducing anxiety and helping you move towards more positive ways of thinking and behaving.

What are the signs of OCD?

  • Sorting, ordering or hoarding items
  • Cleaning ourselves or items; fears of contamination
  • Repetitive thoughts - phrases or words
  • Obsessive thoughts of unwelcome thought and images
  • Avoidance of triggering situations
  • Compulsive activities caused by obsessive thoughts to reduce anxiety

How does hypnotherapy work for OCD?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help OCD by reducing the underlying anxiety that leads to obsessive compulsive behaviours.

You'll gain important insight into why the brain behaves as it does, which can empower you to make the changes you need to regain control over your thoughts and behaviour. Using hypnosis to engage your subconscious mind in working towards your preferred future means that making those changes can feel more like a natural process than hard, challenging work. You can move into a brighter future feeling calmer, more confident and more in control of your thoughts, behaviours and emotions.
