Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

OCD hand washing
This condition involves obsessive thoughts which lead to compulsive behaviours. These thoughts and rituals impact greatly on day to day life. Carrying out the compulsive behaviour will often relieve the symtoms of anxiety and stress. Part of a treatment plan should include techniques to reduce stress and anxiety, this is an area where hypnotherapy can be of particular help. Hypnotherapy can bring about a change in thinking patterns, which in turn helps to reduce the negative obsessive thinking cycle and therefore alleviates the compulsive behaviour. Three to five sessions may be needed for this treatment.
