Treatment for OCD, London

We have come across people obsessed with jogging. They will go for runs perhaps three or four times a day, seven days a week. If something unforeseen should ever happen to them and they could no longer continue their obsessive practise, their lives would have no further meaning, they would be shattered. Some of the musicians we see at our centre suffering from Focal Dystonia practise up to ten hours a day. They would progress their technique just as rapidly if they were to play for only three hours but that doesn’t matter. It is an obsession. Joggers or musicians never at any time feel or believe that by not pursuing their obsessive activities they will cause harm to themselves or others. These types of activities should not be confused with the obsessions experienced by sufferers of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) which have as their basis recurrent and persistent thoughts, urges or images that are intrusive and unwanted and that trigger high levels of anxiety and distress. These feelings sometimes build up over the course of a few hours though more often, tend to materialise instantaneously.

Sufferers attempt to ignore or suppress these thoughts and feelings or to neutralise them with some other thought or action, performing compulsions such as repetitive behaviours or mental acts that they feel driven to perform in response to the obsession. These behaviours are aimed at preventing or reducing anxiety or distress, or preventing some dreaded event or situation occurring. These actions or thoughts are, however, unconnected in any reasonable way with what they are designed to neutralise or prevent, and are clearly excessive.

                                               Typical OCD obsessions and compulsions:

OBSESSION: Concerns about safety (COMPULSION: Constant checking of locks and appliances)
OBSESSION: Fear of contamination (COMPULSION: Repeated washing and incessant de-contamination exercises)
OBSESSION: Persistent thoughts of an unpleasant or blasphemous nature (COMPULSION: Special words, sentences or mantras repeated excessively)
OBSESSION: Exactness, order or symmetry concerns (COMPULSION: Continuous and unremitting order and arranging acts)
OBSESSION: Obsessions with the body or physical symptoms (COMPULSION: Constant mirror checking (see our separate article on Body Dysmorphic Disorder) and extreme hypochondria)

 

                                                                 Our treatment programme:

Hypnotherapy takes a central role in accessing the subconscious and removing the feelings and negative emotions associated with OCD - beliefs that have taken hold and which have been strengthened as a result of you living with the condition, perhaps for many years.

The principal treatment, aside from Hypnotherapy, will be Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) including the application of exposure, behavioural experiments, cognitive restructuring and ritual prevention. We will also introduce you to Psycho Cybernetics, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Gestalt psychology and, where appropriate, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).

The Initial consultation enables the therapist to get an insight into how OCD is affecting your life, helping him to formulate and develop a programme that is fully tailored to your specific requirements.
